Homemade PopTarts


How are kids already back in school? It feels like summer went by in a blink of an eye, but I guess that’s how it always feels! Growing up, one plus side of going back to school was buying a few special treats for breakfast and lunches. We weren’t allowed sugary snacks on the regular so getting a box of PopTarts was a big deal!


Ian and I still try to limit the amount of sweets we keep in the house, so when I surprised him with a batch of homemade PopTarts he could barely wait until they had cooled off to pop one in his mouth.


In the past, I made my own pastry dough but this time around I bought pre-made pie crusts and it was a huge time-saver! These PopTarts are also highly versatile. You can have fun and play around with fillings or toppings. For this batch, I stuck to a traditional flavor, strawberry, but I played around with mini PopTarts. How cute are these little guys?!

How to:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Roll out your pie crusts and cut into rectangles.
  • Add a dollop of your filling to the center on one rectangle
  • Top with another rectangle and crimp the edges shut using a fork
  • Place on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown
  • Once cool spread on the topping of your choice
