Toffee Apple Pop Tarts

No Comments Baking and Tarts / Pies

Homemade poptarts are a great way to add fruit and another way to sneak Christmas spice in. These pop tarts are filled with apples, pecans and toffee sauce. You can vary the amount of wholegrain/plain flour (keep the total weight the same) and I prefer to use a mixture of apple varieties.
