Sandwich Pockets

I'm going to call these "Sandwich Pockets" but I got them off of a blog where the lady called them "Homemade Healthy Poptarts"... and although they are really yummy, they just weren't quite enough like a Poptart to do it for me. So Sandwich Pockets it is!

These are way easy. Just a few ingredients:

3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (I did half white/half wheat - found it was just too heavy for us)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup melted butter
1 cup vanilla yogurt (original recipe called for plain, but I like things sweet)
About 5 ounces of 100% fruit jelly or jam – any flavor you like! (I found freezer jam is too runny for this though)

Begin by mixing the flour, salt, butter and yogurt. Knead the dough just a little bit to make it nice and workable. Roll out the dough on a large, well floured surface. Use a knife to cut the dough into the desired poptart size you would like.

Spoon the jelly onto just the middle of one square (keeping it away from the edges), place another one on top, and press the edges with a fork to seal them so the jam doesn't leak out.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool and eat, or cool and freeze. If frozen, you can pull them out of the freezer and pop them (just like poptarts) right in the toaster - I just had to put the setting a little higher and they turned out beautifully!

Here is the link to the blog where I got it from and she's got great, detailed pics on how to make it, should you desire.
