No frosting — just pure cinnamon sugary goodness with a cold glass of milk.
The breakfast of champions.
Of course, that was back when most Pop-tarts weren’t frosted. When they weren’t bright, noxious colors with swirls and rainbow sprinkles. When they still looked like breakfast pastries, not Play-Doh experiments.
They were just as bad for you — they just looked a whole lot better.
If you also prefer Pop-tarts ‘au natural’, have trouble finding them on your grocer’s shelf, AND aren’t scared to turn on your oven, you’re in luck!
I found a recipe for making Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-tarts from scratch. (And they sound pretty darn good.)
All you need is about 90 minutes, a pizza cutter and a pastry brush. The ingredients and instructions seem pretty simple, too.
You’ll notice the recipe includes instructions for a glaze. No doubt a nod to the frosted youth among us.
Oh well…at least it’s a color found in nature!
