1/2 teaspoon salt
12 tablespoons butter
5 to 6 tablespoons ICE cold water
For the filling:
You favorite JAM about 1/2 cup
1 large egg and 1/4 cup water slightly beaten for Egg Wash
Put flour in bowl and cut up butter into it

Add 1 tablespoon of ice water at a time and continue to mix until the dough comes together and is firm
Wrap dough in Saran Wrap and put in fridge for at least 1 hour (also can keep in fridge overnight)
Cut dough into about 10 small pieces and roll out 1 at a time
Cut edges of dough with knife to make it look like a rectangle. Add about 1 tablespoon of jam and spread out on half of the dough. Spread egg wash along the ends and fold over dough. Press to seal in jam. Take a fork and push dough along the sides to keep in jam and give it the pop tart look.

Preheat Oven to 375 degrees. Bake Pop Tarts for about 10 minutes until golden brown. Let cool (Filling gets VERY hot) and drizzle with a little butter cream frosting if you wish. WOW!
