Homemade Pop Tarts

A weekend home = a weekend of baking! There's nothing better than making something (in this case not quite from scratch) and sharing it with the people you love. Luckily these pop tarts are a treat everyone will be grabbing for. I made ones with a strawberry, blueberry, chocolate, and apple filling using Stonewall Kitchen and Smucker's jams. These tarts are highly customizable! A bonus of these pop tarts are how quick the prep, bake, and cleanup are, as well. While I prefer making doughs myself, this is a great speedy alternative to meet demand!

Pop Tart
Pie Crust (each pie crust yields three pop tarts)
Egg wash (egg yolk mixed with water)

1 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 tbs milk


1. Roll out pie crust to approximately ⅛ inch thick on floured surface. Trim excess dough.
2. Cut the crust into 3 inch x 4 inch rectangles. Two pieces are needed for each pop tart.
3. Spoon the jam onto one piece of crust. Aim for around a tablespoon or so. Don’t overfill, as that will leave you with a mess.
4. Egg wash the crust and prick the top piece with a fork. This will release the steam while baking. Press pieces together along the edges with a fork.
5. Bake at 400°F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
6. For the icing, mix powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk together until thick. Spoon onto the pop tart and add sprinkles.
