Vegan Strawberry Ghost Pop Tarts

Ingredients for the Pop Tarts:

  • 240g all-purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 220g cold, dairy-free butter (cut into cubes)
  • Ice water (adjust as needed)
  • Vegan strawberry jam

Ingredients for the Glaze:

  • 220g confectioner’s sugar
  • 3 tbsp dairy-free milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
  • Black food coloring

Pastry Preparation:

  1. Combine flour and sugar in a medium-sized bowl. Introduce the cold butter, working it in until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. This can be done manually or with a food processor.
  2. Gradually add ice water, starting with 1/2 tablespoon, until you achieve a slightly sticky but cohesive dough. The total water required might be between 1-2 tablespoons.
  3. Encase the dough in parchment paper and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat your oven to 170°C (fan setting) and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  5. Flour your countertop and place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper, rolling it out to form a large, thin rectangle. Use a ghost-shaped cookie cutter to create the desired shapes, placing them on your prepared trays. Gather and re-roll scraps as needed.
  6. Spoon and spread a small amount of strawberry jam onto half of the ghost shapes, leaving a small border around the edges. Brush these edges with dairy-free milk.
  7. Top the jam-filled shapes with the remaining ghost cutouts. Press the edges using your fingers, and then seal with a fork.
  8. Lightly brush the tops with dairy-free milk and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden.
  9. Let them cool before applying the glaze.

Glaze Preparation:

  1. In a bowl, mix together the confectioner’s sugar, vanilla, and dairy-free milk until it reaches a thick consistency. If it’s too thin, add more sugar.
  2. Set aside a small portion of the icing and blend with black food coloring for the ghost’s features.
  3. Drizzle or brush the white glaze over the pop tarts, letting any excess drip off. Let it set for about 10 minutes.
  4. Finalize by adding the ghostly eyes and mouth with the black icing. Let it set before serving. The icing will harden as it air dries.
