Garrett’s birthday was yesterday, but we didn’t have time to celebrate on the actual day (he worked all day and went out of town at night). Last year I made a ridiculously good chocolate cake, so I had set the bar kind of high for myself.
I saw this recipe on Pinterest and knew it was perfect for Garrett’s birthday: a GIANT POP-TART!
Now, I’m super wary when it comes to recipes I find on Pinterest. Too many times, I’ve found a recipe that looked great only to be disappointed. Well, Food 52’s “pop-tart” recipe is a home run. It’s actually just a slab pie, with frosting and sprinkles.
Pies are hard, and I rarely get it right. Between the filling, the crust, and the baking, there are too many factors that can go wrong.
Somehow I pulled it off:
It’s not picture perfect but omg it was SO good.
On a somewhat related note… we canceled our Plated subscription. We’ve been doing it for a year and truly loved the service. However, we’ve been having problems with our boxes for the past couple of months, and I finally got fed up. Do you guys have any recommendations for meal services? (We’ve tried Blue Apron and didn’t love.)
