Pop Tarts for Everyone!

Home made Pop Tarts, how can you resist?   This recipe I had seen all over the internet and had to try it!  These are super easy and probably a little bit healthier too.  I was at Super Target and they did not have the pie crust I was looking for, so I substitued Puff Pastry, so I guess I made homade Toaster Strudels!   This was equally yummy and flaky.

Home made Pop Tarts:

frozen pie crust or puff pastry

your favorite jam or preserves

cooking spray

powdered sugar



Let pie crust thaw, then cut into rectangles.   Add a scoop of preserves to the middle and top with another rectangle.  Crimp the edges with a fork.  Lay them onto a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.  Bake at 425 for 15-20 min. or until golden brown.  Let cool.  To prepare the glaze, mix 1/4 c. powdered sugar and 2 tbs. milk and mix well.  Then drizzle cooled pop tarts with the glaze and shake festive sprinkles on top!  These were a big hit this morning!
