Homemade Strawberry Pop Tarts

I love pop tarts! I decided to try and make my own so that they could be a bit healthier! These were so unbelievably easy to make and only took about 40 minutes! Not only did these taste amazing but they also look so so cute! I had so much fun taking pictures of these!
I decided to make homemade dough. If you want this to be even easier you can buy pre-made dough from the grocery store. Luckily I found a 4 ingredient dough recipe on Pinterest! Let's get started!

Pop Tarts

Dough recipe from Cincy Shopper's 4 ingredient pie crust
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 6 tbsp. cold butter
  • 4 tbsp. cold water
  • Strawberry Jam
PRE HEAT oven to 375 °
MIX the flour and salt together. Cut in the butter, you can use a fork and knife to cut the butter in. Once the batter is crumbly add in the water and kneed until dough forms. Roll out the dough thin, cut 10 rectangles out. Place on greased baking sheet.
FILL the rectangles with jam, place another rectangle on top and secure edges by pushing down with a fork. Poke air holes into the pop tarts.
BAKE 15-18 minutes. Let cool.
Icing
  • Confectioners sugar
  • Almond milk (any type of milk will work)
  • Red food coloring
  • Sprinkles
MIX confectioners sugar and almond milk together. I don't have an exact recipe for this, I start of with a few heaping tbsp. of confectioners sugar and slowly add a tsp. of milk. I keep adding some of each ingredient until I find the perfect consistency. It should be semi-thick. Add 1 drop of red food coloring.
FROST each pop tart and top off with some sprinkles!
