Apricot Our recent cover story in the L.A. Times Food section was all about Pop-Tarts -- and how you can make a homemade version.

With a basic crust recipe, says writer Amy Scattergood, you are free to improvise with your own ideas, be they sweet or savory.

And making your own toaster-worthy treats is easy a pie, Amy says. You can follow along with this step-by-step photo gallery to see just how easy it is.

It all led to a fun discussion on Twitter, where we asked "What would you put inside a homemade Pop-Tart?"

Keep reading for some ideas from our Twitterific friends, including Jean at food blog Delightful Repast, who kindly shared her recipe version of a pocket pastry: apricot turnovers. You can follow her on Twitter @delightfulrepas

And if you have any swell suggestions for ingredients to tuck into these homemade treats, let us know in the comments section below.
