Instructions
For filling
  1. In a saucepan add plums and brown sugar and let it cook for few minutes until plums are soft.

  2. Add orange peels, ground cinnamon and ginger and cook until the filling starts thickening.

  3. Let the filling cool and set it aside.

For Pastry
  1. In a mixing bowl add flours, salt and sugar.  Mix well to combine.

Assembling
  1. Once chilled, divide the dough into two parts and start working on one portion while keeping the other in the refrigerator.

  2. Roll out the dough into a rectangle sheet and cut out equal sized rectangle pieces. For more precise shape and size use ruler.

  3. Prepare a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

  4. Place Three of the dough rectangles on prepared baking tray and fill a tablespoon of stuffing in the centre evenly spread.

  5. Cover the pastry rectangle sheet with remaining sheets and prick down the edges with the fork to seal properly.

  6. Repeat the same with the second batch of dough. Brush the tarts with melted butter and chill in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.

  7. Preheat the oven to 350°F and bake the pop tarts for about 35 to 40 minutes or until golden in colour.

  8. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack. 

Icing
