I was looking for an easy treat for the kids and I to make together and stumbled across this recipe for homemade pop-tarts. This recipe was quick and easy to make and didn’t disappoint…I don’t know if I could ever eat a Kellogg’s Pop-Tart again! Next time, I need to remember to have some Nutella on hand, as I’m positive that would have been delicious too!
- 1 (15 ounce) package refrigerated pie crusts
- 1/4 cup strawberry jam, divided (we used apple pie filling too)
- 2 cups confectioners’ sugar
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Sprinkles or colored sugar
Counting how many ingredients they need.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Unroll the pie crusts, place on a lightly floured work surface, and roll the crusts slightly with a rolling pin to square the edges.
Top each with another pastry square, and use a fork to crimp the squares together, sealing in the jam. Use a knife to trim the pastries, if desired. Move the filled pastries to the prepared baking sheets.
Spread the cooled tarts with frosting and sprinkle with sprinkles or colored sugar.
