Homemade Strawberry Pop Tarts


Ingredients

Units Scale

Pop Tarts:

  • 2 Pie Crusts, premade
  • 1/2 c Fruit Jam
  • 1 tbsp Cornstarch
  • 1 Egg

Topping:

  • 1 c Confectioners’ Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Heavy Cream
  • Sprinkles, for garnish

Instructions

Pop Tarts:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine the jam and cornstarch in a small bowl and mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg.
  4. Lay the pie crusts flat and cut off the round edges to create a 9 inch square. If necessary, roll the crust wider with a rolling pin and some flour.
  5. Cut the square into three strips, each 3 inches wide.
  6. Spread 1-2 tablespoons of the jam mixture onto one end of each strip, avoiding the edges.
  7. Brush the egg onto the edges of the pie crust, creating a perimeter around the jam.
  8. Fold the strip in half, so the jam is covered. Use a fork to press the edges on all four sides together.
  9. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the pie crust turns golden brown.
  10. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

Topping:

  1. Combine the confectioners’ sugar, heavy cream, and jam. Mix well.
  2. Spread the frosting over the cooled tarts and garnish with sprinkles.
