These pop-tarts feature a sweet strawberry jelly filling, a golden, flaky crust, and colorful sprinkles. Your kids (and you) will love making and enjoying these treats.


Two boxes of premade pie crust
Strawberry jelly (or your favorite flavor)
One egg
Frosting (store-bought or homemade)


Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C) and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Create the Pastry: Unroll the pie crusts and cut them into the desired pop-tart size. You should have 16 individual crust pieces.
Add the Filling: Lay 8 of the crust pieces on the prepared cookie sheet. On each of these pieces, add approximately 1 teaspoon of strawberry jelly and spread it evenly, leaving a border around the edges.
Seal and Vent: Place the remaining 8 crust pieces on top of the jelly-covered ones. Use a fork to crimp the edges, sealing the pop-tarts. Then, use a toothpick to poke a few holes in the top of each one to allow steam to escape during baking.
Egg Wash: Create an egg wash by beating one egg. Brush the egg wash over the top of each pop-tart. This will give them a beautiful golden color as they bake.
Bake and Cool: Bake the pop-tarts in the preheated oven for 7-8 minutes or until they are lightly golden brown. Once they’re done, transfer them to a wire cooling rack and allow them to cool.
Frost and Sprinkle: Once the pop-tarts have cooled, it’s time to add frosting. You can use store-bought frosting or prepare your own. Decorate the pop-tarts with colorful sprinkles to make them even more fun and inviting.
Enjoy: These homemade pop-tarts are a hit with kids and adults alike. You can store any leftovers in the refrigerator and warm them up whenever you’re ready to enjoy a tasty, homemade treat.
Make these Strawberry Pop-Tarts a part of your baking routine, and enjoy the delight of a sweet, fruity filling wrapped in a golden, flaky crust. They’re perfect for breakfast, brunch, or a sweet snack. Happy baking! 🍓🥮😋
