Easiest Homemade Pop Tarts
These are the Easiest Homemade Pop Tarts you could make! Made with pie crust, filled with strawberry jam, and topped with a vanilla icing and sprinkles!
Servings: 9 pop tarts
- 1 package store bought pie crust two crusts total
- 3/4 cup strawberry jam
Pop tart glaze
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 Tbsp. milk or heavy cream
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Roll out each pie crust with a rolling pin to a 1/8 inch thickness. Cut each pie crusts into 2x3 inch rectangles and place 9 on prepared baking sheet.
Add 1 tablespoon of jam to the center of each and then top with a pie crust rectangle. Use a fork to crimp the edges of all 4 sides of the pop tarts. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the pop tarts are a light golden brown color. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool.
In the meantime, you can make the glaze. In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth. If the icing becomes too thick, add a few drops of water. Spoon the glaze over each pop tart and add sprinkles. You can enjoy immediately or let sit for 20 minutes to let the glaze set.
- You can use a brown sugar filling instead of strawberry jam if you prefer. To make the brown sugar filling simply mix together 1/2 cup packed brown sugar, 2 1/4 teaspoons of cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon of flour.
