Ingredients

Instant Pot Jam

  • 2 pounds fresh blackberries - or other fruit that you like such as strawberries
  • 1 cup organic granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch - optional

Pop tarts dough & filling

  • 14 ounces rolled pie crust - one package that has two rolled pie crusts
  • 1 cup blackberry jam - or preserves
  • 3 tablespoons aquafaba

Icing

  • 1 cup organic powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons dairy free milk - unsweetened, any kind you like
  • 2 tablespoons jam
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

For the instant pot jam

  • Add your fresh fruit and sugar to your instant pot. Mix well and then Twist the head on the instant pot to seal.
  • Close the sealing valve.
  • Set your instant pot to high pressure for one minute.
  • Allow a natural release for 15 minutes.
  • Once the final 15 minutes are up open the sealing valve to release. Be careful of the steam. Let all of the steam completely release. Remove the lid and use a hot pad or towel to prevent burns.
  • With a potato masher, mash the jam well, and stir to make sure the sugar as well Incorporated.
  • If you want your jam a little bit thicker, use 1 tablespoon of cornstarch at a time. Mix and then add more if needed.
  • Remove the jam to a large bowl to cool.

Making the tarts

  • Preheat the oven to 400°.
  • On a flat surface such as a countertop or cutting board, lay out your piecrust. Lightly sprinkle some flour onto the crust and roll with the rolling pin to thin the crust slightly.
  • Cut the dough into 3"x5" rectangles. Knead the remaining pie crust, and use the rolling pin to make more 3 x 5 rectangles. Place half of the rectangles on a baking sheet or two.
  • Place about 1 ½ tablespoons of the cooled jam in the center of a half of the rectangles.
  • Brush ’egg’ wash (aquafaba) and line the sides surrounding the rim.
  • Take another plain rectangle and place it on top of that rectangle, with the jam, matching the edges.
  • Use the back of a fork to press the sides to seal in your jam.
  • Use the ‘egg’ wash (aquafaba) to completely coat the top part of your tart. Use a fork to puncture holes in the top of the tart to allow air to be released while baking.
  • Place the baking sheets in the preheated oven, and bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
  • While your tarts are baking in the oven, make your icing. Mix all of the ingredients for the icing and then set aside.
  • Once your tarts have finished cooking, remove them from the oven and transferred to a cooling rack.
  • Allow them to cool completely before putting icing on them.
  • You can choose to put one or more layers of icing on your tart but allow the icing to cool and harden a bit before you add any more.
