Big and little kids love these and they are not hard to make. Just make sure you use jam that you would use on your morning toast, not the cheap stuff. I used strawberry and blueberry on this batch.

How to Make Home Made Pop Tarts

Step-by-Step

  1. Roll dough out to make a rectangle. I do it in two batches. Cut the dough into equal rectangles. I usually three cuts vertically and three cuts horizontally. You get nine but the extra one is used on your next rectangle that you roll out. It all depends on how big you make them. For the dough you can also use my Easy Awesome Pie crust on here.

  2. Put a little over a teaspoon of jam in the middle of the square and spread it out a bit. If you get too much on there it will come out the sides during baking. Crimp the edges with a fork sprayed so it will not stick. I put mine on a piece of foil dull side up on a cookie sheet for easy clean up. Bake for 15- 20 minutes at 350. Watch them so they don't burn.
  3. When you make the frosting add a little of milk at a time. Don't make a mess like I did. You want it loose but not real runny. Add sprinkles as you go because it will harden. After the frosting hardens you can bag them and freeze them. Enjoy!
