Jillian Harris Vegan Easter Bunny Pop Tarts

Ingredients

Dough

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup vegan butter
  • 3 tbsp cold water

Filling

  • 1 1/2 cups strawberries (or berry of choice)

Icing

  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp almond milk
  • Food colouring (natural or artificial)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Make your filling: In a small saucepan, add your berries and bring to medium heat. Using a masher, smash the berries until the liquid releases, and simmer for 5-10 minutes on low.
  3. Make your dough: In a large bowl, mix flour and salt, then cut in butter with a fork or using your fingers to break up into small pea-sized pieces.
  4. Add in cold water and mix with wooden spoon. Your dough should be shaggy but not too dry. Add more water if too dry.
  5. Turn down onto floured surface and roll into 1/4 inch large rectangle. Your dough should be thin but manageable!
  6. Using a paring knife, cut dough into bunny shape, with two ears and a head.
  7. Transfer onto the baking sheet and add 1 tbsp berry filling.
  8. Wet your fingers and trace the outside of the first layer of dough.
  9. Add your second layer of bunny ear-shaped dough, and then use a fork to press the outer edges to close the seam.
  10. Bake for 20 minutes or until fragrant and almost golden brown.
  11. Stick lollipop sticks through the bottom if desired (optional).
  12. Once cooled, add your icing on top, and add brown or black long sprinkles to create little whiskers.

  • Hi Jillian!

    First off I just want to say your such an inspiration and just a real mama in this crazy world! I am thinking about making the transition to vegan ?! I just finished watching “what the health” and all the things I thought were healthy for my family turns it to be terrible ?. How was the transition? Any recipe books you could recommend to get me in my way? Of course I don’t expect this to happen overnight.. and convincing the hubby and kids will be a challenge but.. I’m up for the challenge! Anyways any tips or tricks or recommendations you could send my way would be fantastic!
    Thx!
    Nicole
