Home Made Top Tarts!

Susan Cutler


"I didn't think anything could be better than a toasted store bought pastry tart in the morning -- until I made these. Very, very easy to make! Kids (and adults) love them!"

Unknown author! I have not made these yet but thought I would post, just because. If anyone does make them let me know-comments are ALWAYS welcome folks. That is how I learn and everyone else! Thank you!

8 tarts
20 Min
10 Min


1 pkg
(15 ounce) package refrigerated pie crusts
1/4 c
strawberry jam, divided
2 dash(es)
confectioners' sugar
2 Tbsp
1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
1 Tbsp
colored decorating sugar, or as needed


1Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Unroll the pie crusts, place on a lightly floured work surface, and roll the crusts slightly with a rolling pin to square the edges.

Cut each crust into 8 equal-sized rectangles. Place about 2 teaspoons of strawberry jam in the center of 8 squares, and spread the jam out to within 1/4 inch of the edge of the pastry square.

Top each with another pastry square, and use a fork to crimp the squares together, sealing in the jam. Use a knife to trim the pastries, if desired.

Move the filled pastries to the prepared baking sheets.
2Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are lightly golden brown, about 7-10 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheets.

Meanwhile, stir together the confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla extract in a bowl to make a spreadable frosting.

Spread the cooled tarts with frosting and sprinkle with colored sugar.
