Homemade Pop Tarts

November 01, 2016

Forget the box! Make the classic homemade..

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 tried an organic brand.  They were better, no dyes, nothing artificial. But, of course, they were more costly.  Such a dilemma, right?

First, I tried not to panic. I could just not feed them to my kids, but, what fun is that?  So, after realizing..um..duh! (Smacks self on forehead.) Just make them! So, I did.  Such a great idea.

Now, there are 2 ways you can do these.  With homemade pie crust of refrigerator pie crust. Your choice. I make them with the refrigerator ones. Either way, they are better than the boxed version.



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.

I usually fill ours with grape or strawberry jelly and frost with a simple powdered sugar glaze. Of course, I   also toss on a few sprinkles, just for fun.

These can be made in a large quantity and put in the freezer for a later day for breakfast or to snack on. No more box needed!
