Homemade Poptarts

(I know this isn't the most attractive photo in the world, but these are delicious!)
This recipe is adapted from here.  This is the second time I have made these and we haven't eaten the whole batch each time for breakfasts throughout the week.  They are great both warm up and cold out of the fridge.

2 cups wheat flour
1 1/2 cups white flour  (feel free to use just one type of flour and make it 3 1/2 cups)
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup plain yogurt
1 cup melted butter
any sort of filling (we've tried strawberry jelly, nutella, apple butter, marshmellow)

Optional topping
1 tbsp of milk
1 cup of powdered sugar
1 tsp of vanilla

Mix together flour, salt, yogurt, and butter.  Knead the dough a bit to make it workable.  Then roll it out on a well floured surface until it is about 3ish mm thick.  Then cut it with cookie cutters.  (The first time I just cut them into square pieces which worked okay but it was hard to give them even sizes.  With cookie cutters too, I was able to give a different shape a different filling.)

Then spread about 1/2 teaspoon to teaspoon of filling on one of the shapes.  Find a matching shape and put it on top.  Then go around the edges with a fork to seal the edges.

Lay each poptart flat on a baking sheet for 20-25 mins at 350° until they are golden brown.  Depending on how big you make them it makes around 15-20.  

The second time I made them I also added the powder sugar drizzle.  Add a little milk, a bit of vanilla and stir in powdered sugar till the right consistency.  Then I drizzled them once they got out of the oven.  Delicious!
