Homemade Pop Tarts


Ah, Pop tarts. They have been around for years, right?  I am guilty of eating them and feeding them to my children.  Yes, I know, not great.   I did try an organic brand.  They were better, no dyes, nothing artificial.  But, of course, they were more costly.  What to do??

First, I tried not to panic. I could just not feed them to my kids, but, what fun is that?  So, after searching for a good recipe, I came across this item from Bake Me More.  You can do the quick route and use refrigerator pie crust (that is what I did) or make your own crust.  Either way, they are better than the boxed.

The thing I love about these is the options are endless: you can do fruit, cinnamon, chocolate fillings, icing, no icing.  The crust can also be whole wheat for a healthier switch.
For my first time making them, I filled them with grape and strawberry jelly.  I also drizzled some icing and a tossed a few sprinkles just for fun.  This is also another item that can be made in a large quantity and put in the freezer for a later day for breakfast or to snack on.
