I have these 2 friends at work that are totally addicted to pop tarts, so when I came across a recipe for homemade pop tarts I knew right away that I had to make them for Nicole and Whisper. Just about the same time I found this recipe Nicole had just supplied me with her homemade strawberry freezer jam, one taste and I knew that would be the perfect filling for the pop tarts. She had no problem giving me another jar if it meant she would get fresh homemade pop tarts in return. This recipe is darn easy and OMG so darn good, I love the store bought version but this homemade one is so much better. The girls loved how fresh and flaky the tarts were and the wonderful flavor of the fresh strawberry freezer jam simply made all the difference.
1 – Box refrigerated Pie crust
Strawberry Freezer Jam or Your Favorite Preserve
1 C. - Powder Sugar
Unroll each pie crust and square them off, cut them into equal size rectangles. I was able to get 6 pop tarts from what I cut out and then I rerolled the left over dough and was able to get 2 more. Place about 1 Tbs. of jam or preserve in the center of a rectangle and spread out, stopping just before the edge. Place another piece of dough on top and using a fork crimp the edges together and then the side of the fork create a seal around the perimeter of the pop tart. Place all of the pop tarts onto a well greased baking sheet and cook at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until golden and crispy. Let them cool before glazing. When the pop tarts are ready to be glazed mix the sugar with enough milk to make a semi thick glaze, spoon it over the top of each tart and sprinkle with the colored sugar.
