Patriotic Pop Tarts Combinations
I chose to fill these patriotic pop tarts with raspberry jam but you can absolutely substitute the filling flavor for your favorite kind of jam. Strawberry, blackberry, grape, whatever floats your boat.
I recommend using a jam that doesn’t have chunks of the actual fruit. This can sometimes lead to the pop tarts leaking out of the sides a bit too much. As for seedless v.s seeded jam, that is all preference. Both will do the job deliciously 🙂
The egg wash between the layers and on top serves a couple different purposes. The egg wash in between the two layers helps to act as a kind of glue to help bind the top of the pop tart to the bottom one. The egg wash over the entire surface of the pop tart gives it a beautiful golden color and crisp texture making for the perfect finished product!Yum
