Strawberry Popped TartMADE BY MEGPIES IN BROOKLYN, NEW YORK
“Because the most important meal of the day loses a little importance when you’re spooning up that yogurt you found in the office fridge.”
Rich, perfectly flaky, fortifyingly buttery pastry gives way to sweet-tart strawberry jam in this ideal breakfast treat. A thick layer of powder-pink sugary frosting completes the appeal: and it all somehow still isn't too heavy to serve as an on-the-go breakfast. Your commute just got a lot better.
Each Megpie is totally homemade, and you immediately taste the difference between these and the machine-made stuff. We swoon over their buttery, flaky crust and to-die-for fillings.
When Meghan Ritchie introduced these retro treats at Brooklyn food market Smorgasburg, they quickly became a hot ticket. They've got such a following they're even listed as one of the Village Voice's top 100 dishes. One bite, and you'll forget Pop Tarts ever even existed.
INSTRUCTIONS: We ship these treats frozen and mostly they defrost on the way. Store at room temperature and when you're ready to enjoy, just reheat them in an oven or toaster oven at 250 degrees for five minutes. The pastries stay fresh for over a week, but those west of the Mississippi should eat these within a couple of days of receiving them for the freshest tasting pastries. If you make it more than 24 hours, you deserve some kind of prize.
Tip of the Tongue
Pop Tarts make us nostalgic for childhood and the dorm days, so these more-sophisticated versions make the perfect gift for someone who could use a little help with that tricky transition from childhood to adulthood: like, your broke recent college grad. Or your broke uncle who still lives at home (you know the one).
