Make these...your kids will thank you!!

My kids love Pop Tarts.  Love them.  Will can eat them anytime, day or night! I found this recipe while Stumbling (if you don't Stumble you are missing out) one morning before anyone was up.  I was quite skeptical but decided to whip them up.  Will was in love! He just looked at my computer and said, "You HAVE to make those again! Please! Right NOW!" He is still begging! 

They are so easy and versatile.  I made cherry, grape, strawberry and even chocolate! We had a blast making and decorating them.  Give them a try! I promise you will love them!


Refrigerated or homemade pie crust (I always use the Pillsbury rolled crust, its easy to work with and I always have it on hand)
Jam, Preserves or chocolate chips (any flavor)
Glaze (see recipe below)
Sparkling sugar, sprinkles or other edible decorations


Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
Unroll one of the pie crusts and square the edges. Cut into rectangles. Place 1 tsp of jam in the center of a rectangle and top with another piece of crust. Crimp all four edges. Repeat until all of the pie crust is used.

Bake the pop-tarts for about 7 – 8 minutes or until slightly brown. Once cool, pour glaze over and decorate with sugar.


1 Cup powdered sugar, sifted

Place powdered sugar in a mixing bowl and whisk in enough milk to make a very thick syrup like consistency.
