      i know they're professionals. this is their job. and they're also fantastic entertainers. but who in the hell puts the icing on a toaster strudel first? poptart icing is more like flavored drywall. it wouldn't melt under a blowtorch.

              Can I hire Chris to be an audience for my experimental recipes, he's so supportive and spot on truthful at the same time. Also I will be able to actually use part of this recipe, I think a jam filled puff pastry -pasty/slice we call them in UK- that's iced would be something a few people in my life would love, and I already make jam so there's so many options; really imspiring and happy episode, please let Claire make more pastries on these instead of pop rocks and other non-possible things.

                            Pop tarts are nasty, toaster strudels are palatable, she made a gourmet hybrid.

                            The only pop tart like similarity is the icing.

                                            I also agree this was your best one yet!

                                            I actually like my pop tarts without frosting... anyone else?

                                            I think I will try this with my own pop tart recipe (sans homemade sprinkles!)

                                                  I've never watched these videos before. That was calming. I kind of liked that there was no intense music and fast paced editing like a cooking competition show, it was just a chef trying to figure out how to make from scratch poptarts, and seeing the whole thought process was kind of nice.

The closest I've ever come to this was making jam and enveloping them in store bought dough. Made overstuffed pastries, and they were good but I know these are 50x better.
