I have a very serious question.
Did you grow up in the land of pop tarts and toaster strudels? The land of frosting and sprinkles and icing in a foil package? Thank you 90s.
I totally did, though I enjoyed them more as a snack than breakfast. When it came to before-school breakfasts, I was hooked on an English muffin with peanut butter and honey. And sometimes banana.
I’m still hooked on that! How boring.
If needed, I could get by on a cinnamon brown sugar pop tart and I most definitely remember when s’mores pop tarts came on the scene. THAT was huge. The thing with pop tarts though? I never wanted to eat any of the unfrosted crust. So I basically cut the already-rectangular shaped tart into a smaller rectangle and ate just the frosted section.
- 2 sheets puff pastry, thawed

- salt and pepper, for sprinkling
