Pie crusts: Store-bought pie crusts.

Egg: The egg is brushed onto the pop tart so that it browns nicely.

Powdered Sugar & Milk: We use powdered sugar to make the icing. If you don’t want to ice on the pop tarts, you can skip the sugar and milk.

How to Make Pie Crust Pop Tarts

Prep the pop tarts by dusting a small board or parchment paper with a small amount of flour and then cut the pie crust sections into rectangles. We made these about 3 inches wide and 5 inches long.

Create different shapes with cookie cutters for more fun! Make stars, themed designs, and more.

Be sure you have 2 of the same shapes! Once you get the shapes cut out, lay them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

Pie Crust Pop Tarts Filling

Add your filling mix to the center of each piece of pie crust and brush the edges with the beaten egg.

Place one piece of pie crust over another and use a fork to pinch the edges together.

Brush the top of each pop tart with the beaten egg and use the fork to poke a few holes in the top of the pop tart. This will help the steam escape when cooking.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until the crusts are golden brown.

For the icing or glaze: Combine the milk and powdered sugar in a bowl. Stir well. Coat the pop tarts with glaze while the pop tarts are still warm. Top with sprinkles.

  • Add cinnamon, vanilla, or cardamom to the jam for an extra boost of flavor.
  • Add some extra jam to the top of the homemade pop tarts instead of using icing.
  • Use different sprinkles to change the look either for fun or for special holidays and celebrations.
  • Use cookie cutters to make different shapes with the pop tarts.
  • Top the pop tarts with fresh fruit.
