These are so good I probably should never make them again.
Here is a simple recipe for homemade Pop Tarts. I made grape, but you could easily use this recipe to make strawberry, peach, raspberry….
My husband wanted me to tell you he totally endorses this recipe. This batch did not even make it 24 hours before they were all gone.
This recipe will make approximately 6 pop tarts.
Grape Pop Tarts Ingredients:
2 Refrigerated Pie Crusts (Uncooked Dough)
1 Cup of Powdered Sugar
2 Tablespoons of Milk (I used 2%)
1/4 Teaspoon of Vanilla
To Make The Pop Tarts
Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Roll the pie crust dough and cut into rectangular pieces (approximately 3 X 5 inches) You should be able to get about 12 pieces from 2 refrigerated pie crusts.
Arrange six pieces of dough on the lined cookie sheet. Brush the edges of each piece with egg wash (1 egg beaten+ 1 tablespoon of water.)
Add about 2 tablespoons of filling to each pastry. (I recommend that you do not spread the jelly out.)
Top each piece with the remaining dough. Press down on all sides using a fork to seal the dough.
Bake approximately 20 minutes or until the pastries are a light golden brown. Remove from the oven and place the tarts on a rack to cool.
To Make The Icing
Sift 1 cup of powdered sugar into a small bowl. Add in the milk and vanilla. Mix well.
If the icing is too thin add more powdered sugar. If icing is too thick add more milk.
Once the pop tarts have slightly cooled, spoon icing on to each tart and top with sprinkles.
Serve Warm and Enjoy!
As I mentioned earlier, I would not recommend spreading out the jelly because it will melt and spread itself. If you spread the jelly too close to the edges or add a little too much it will leak through.
My youngest son found the bowl of sugar sprinkles and helped himself. (He totally ignored the pop tarts.)
I had one pop tart. I was just going to have a taste, but then I threw self control out the window because they were pretty darn amazing. I made these on a Sunday evening. My husband and oldest son had gobbled up the remaining 5 pop tarts by breakfast the next morning.
