Pop tarts

Pastry sheets Filling (Jam, chocolate spread, cheese spread) Flavoured salt or sugar Cut one sheet (approximately 30 cm or 12 in square) into 3 equal-ish rectangles.
In the centre of each rectangle, leaving 1.5 cm along the edges, spread your choice of jam, chocolate spread, or cream cheese spread.
Fold in half length ways.
Press edges with a fork (it looks pretty, and it seals it together)
Knife small cuts into the top, and brush with milk
Place on a greased flat tray.
For the savoury (cheese) pop tarts, sprinkle with salt (I have rosemary salt... I'll write up how to make that later). The sweet ones get a sprinkling of raw or demerara sugar.
Bake in moderate (350F or 180C) oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.

I use pre-made, frozen shortcrust pastry because pastry is something I just Don't Do. I can make it, I'm just lazy that way.
