I can go on and on extolling the virtues of bacon. But it would just be gilding the bacon lily with lameness. It’s bacon. And it’s in a pop tart. Why say more?
Well, I’ll say a little more. . . .
I used the sweet pastry recipe from smitten kitchen. All her instructions work perfectly. The dough is wonderful. Sweet, flakey. I managed to have farm fresh eggs this week, so that added to the perfection. If I had had Happy Cow butter, I believe it would have caused a rift in the space-delectable continuum.
The woman we love to hate, Martha Stewart, gives us the Bacon Jam filling. Ah, Martha. . . . As I shuffle about in your perfect-palette-painted kitchen, I mutter my jealous praises to you. Thank you, Martha. Thank you for goading us to perfection. I hate you for it.
Nom, nom, nom.
