Bake the Book: Orange Marmalade-Mascarpone Pop-Tarts

When it comes to breakfast pastries, Pop-Tarts fall firmly into the lowbrow, guilty pleasure category. But their bad image can easily be made over if you forgo the store bought and opt for homemade. These Orange Marmalade-Mascarpone Pop Tarts from Handheld Pies have nothing on the s'mores filled versions. Encased in a buttery pâte brisée crust and filled with creamy mascarpone and bitter-sweet marmalade, these Pop-Tarts are more on par with croissants than rainbow sprinkle topped breakfast pastries.

The marmalade gives these Pop-Tarts a wonderfully breakfasty feel but if bitter orange isn't your thing feel free to switch it up with any jam you'd like. And if sixteen Pop-Tarts seems like a little much, it's important to note that these can be frozen and reheated for many happy breakfasts to come.
