"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!

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

How to Make Home Made Top Tarts!


  1. Preheat 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.
  2. Bake 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.
