Hump Day Snack: Homemade Toaster Pastries

By: Jamie Lisanti

While you're stocking up on new pencils, notebooks and back-to-school shoes, don't forget cool new things for your kid's (or your own) lunchbox. In lieu of store-bought finds, try this recipe for homemade Pop-Tarts. Toaster pastries are ideal for racing-out-the-door breakfasts, but taking the time in advance to make your own pastry dough is worth the extra effort. As the autumn nears, use the season's first batch of apples to make a delectable pie filling, then make a cinnamon glaze to top the squares. Serve them at room temperature or gently warm them in the toaster or microwave, and we can bet you won't miss the packaged equivalent. Happy snacking!
