    1. Step 1

      Remove the shortcrust pastry from fridge and let it sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.

      Ingredients for this step

      • Shortcrust pastry (ready to roll) (320g)
    2. Step 2

      Unroll and slice into mini rectangles (roughly 2x3” in size). You should be able to make 18 rectangles from one pack of ready-rolled pastry.

    3. Step 3

      Add a teaspoon of your chosen filling (jam, Biscoff or Nutella) in the middle of half of the rectangles.

      Ingredients for this step

      • Strawberry jam (1 jar)
      • Nutella (1 jar)
      • Biscoff spread (1 jar)
    4. Step 4

      Brush the beaten egg on the outside edges of the filled rectangles. Then lay the unfilled rectangles on top of the filled ones and press the edges together.

      Ingredients for this step

      • Medium eggs (beaten) (1)
    5. Step 5

      Use a fork to crimp the edges so the filling is sealed inside. Brush the top of each with beaten egg and use a sharp knife to make a hole in the middle of each.

    6. Step 6

      Preheat the air fryer to 180ºC. Cook the pop tarts for 10 minutes until the pastry is golden and crisp. Remove and leave to cool.
