Homemade Pop Tarts

27 Apr

I have shared quite a few desserts with you at this point , and this one definitely ranks at the very top of the list. There seems to be something extra delicious about taking something that you know you already love the store-bought version of, and making it yourself. I took the easy route when I made these and used a store-bought pie crust and this recipe here. The crust turned out flakey and soft, just as I hoped, and it saved me some valuable time in the kitchen. These are a fun treat to make this weekend with the family, and require only about 15 minutes to whip up a batch if you use ready-made crust. In my opinion they taste the very best when they are still warm and the icing melts a little bit on top,  BUT they were still delicious the next day, and the day after that as well!

Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • Pie crust, store-bought or homemade
  • Jam or Preserves
  • Icing sugar
  • Dash of milk
  • Sparkling sugar

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425/450 degrees
  2. Slice the crust into slices the desired size of your pop tarts
  3. Lay flat and spoon jam onto the centre of one side
  4. Layer second piece of pie crust on top and crimp edges with a fork to close all the way around
  5. Place on cookie sheet and into the oven for 8-9 minutes or until golden brown
  6. Remove and let cool on baking rack
  7. Mix icing sugar with a dash of milk until smooth enough to spread
  8. Spread icing on the top of the pop tarts and sprinkle sparkling sugar on top
