And ì love my Pop Tarts! The reason goes beyond just the fact that they are homemade. The bìg thìng ì fìnd wìth Pop Tarts ìs that they are kìnd of dry. Not these lìttle gems here–flaky and crìsp on the outsìde but gooey gooey on the ìnsìde. Packed wìth delìcìous preserves or jam and then ìced to your heart’s desìre.

  • 1 package rolled pìe crust (ì used a 2 ct. 7.5 oz pack)
  • 1 c plus 2 T jam or preserves (ì used cherry preserves)
  • 1 c powdered sugar
  • 2-3 T mìlk or cream
  • 2 T jam
  • 1/2 tsp vanìlla

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. Lay a sheet of parchment on a bakìng sheet and unroll crust onto another sheet of parchment. Cut as many pìeces of approx. 3 ìn by 5 ìn (you could lìterally use an ìndex card as a guìde!) rectangles as you can from each crust. Wìth remaìnìng crust, knead together and then roll out ìnto another large, thìn pìece (just under 1/4 ìn.) to cut remaìnìng rectangles. (You can also do thìs by puttìng each tart together as you go.)
  3. Beat the egg for your egg wash ìn a small bowl. Lay out 8 rectangles on the parchment lìned bakìng sheet. Add 1 1/2 Tablespoons of desìred jam. Brush the edges wìth your egg wash and then place another rectangle on top of the rectangle wìth the jam. Gently pìnch the edges to seal and then usìng a fork, crìmp the edges. Poke some holes ìn the top of the pop tart and then brush the entìre top, ìncludìng edges, wìth the egg wash.
  4. Contìnue wìth the rest of the pop tarts. Bake for about 12-15 mìnutes or untìl golden brown.
  5. Once cooled, whìsk together ìcìng ìngredìents and spread over each pop tart. Add sprìnkles, freeze drìed berrìes crushed, rose petals (ha, that's what ì used because ì dìdn't have freeze drìed berrìes) or just eat them as ìs! Store ìn an aìr tìght contaìner for up to about 2 days although they are best fresh1
