Shared Food


For the dough:

  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 cup cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes
  • ¼ - ½ cup cold water
  • Pink, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple food coloring

For the filling:

  • Any jam of your choice

For the glaze:

  • 3 tablespoons whipping cream
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup confectioner's sugar
  • Rainbow sprinkles


  1. To make the dough, mix together the flour, salt and sugar in a food processor. Add butter and pulse until it turns into a crumbly meal-like texture. Drizzle over the ice water, and pulse until the dough sticks together when squished together.
  2. Divide the dough into 6 balls and dye each ball a color of the rainbow with food coloring. Flatten each ball of dough into a disk and stack them up in the order of the rainbow. Twist together, then divide in half, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  3. To assemble the Pop Tarts, roll the dough out into a rectangle 10 inches x 8 inches. Cut into 4 rectangles and transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Dollop 1 teaspoon of jam onto the center of one side of each rectangle. Fold the rectangle over to cover the jam and seal closed with a fork. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and fully cool.
  4. To decorate, combine the whipping cream and vanilla extract in a bowl. Add the confectioner's sugar and whisk until fully combined. Spoon some glaze onto each pop tart and decorate with rainbow sprinkles. Enjoy!
