Let’s see, can’t find ground pecans, we’ll try this almond meal at Trader Joe’s; long as we’re here, let’s use their vanilla butter wafers to pulverize with it, a little fresh almond paste from Milk Pail, got the grade B maple syrup, and what? No organic oranges? Skip that then.

(I did a mashup between the kringle and the strudel.)

Okay, no way am I going to roll out the butter/flour layers a bajillion times. Just make a sweet roll recipe, that’ll do.

So I did that and rolled it pie-crust thin on parchment paper twice, put the filling on one layer, topped it with the second layer, pinched the edges tight, and got–

–dang. Much glorified, but.  A giant Poptart!

I think it’s time to go knit.

Doubled over laughing. Can’t stop! Giant pop-tart!
Would fillo dough work?

Love the TJ’s almond meal! It makes a great substitution for 1/3 of the flour in my scone recipe. Bet that was one GOOOOD pop tart, btw.

Agreeing with Ruth: “GOOOOD”!

ROFL! A giant poptart! Still, it sounds good!

poptart?! with that filling it is at least a toaster strudel!!

sounds wonderful — remember that recipes like patterns sometimes require tweaking (which only means more tasting — yummm!)

As Amalie used to say occasionally, “If you liked that, don’t ask for it again.”

LOL!! I’m sure it was the best giant pop tart ever made! I’m dying to try something you’ve made after hearing about all of it for so long. You’ve created a giant longing for quality sweets in me!!

Stay well.

Experimentation is at the heart of invention, after all–and as long as it was edible, nothing was wasted.

Maybe roll out one layer, spread the filling, then roll and bake?
