I am writing this from Covid-19 quarantine...because when you are stuck at home, why not do some baking!
Inspired by my sweet friend, Morgan from Prosecco and Projects, these very simple and delicious homemade pop tarts are such a fun recipe to make with your kids. You can swap out the cookie cutters for different holidays too!
Your favorite cookie cutters
1 package of refrigerated pie crust
Jam of your choice - We used homemade strawberry jam. It needs to be somewhat thick. I think a chocolate hazelnut spread would be really good too!
1/2 cup of powdered sugar
Unroll pie crust and cut out your dough with your cookie cutters. I allowed mine to sit on the counter for a little bit to make it easier to work with.
Cut out your shapes. You will need 2 per pastry.
Spread a layer of jam on one of the cutout shapes. I found that a tablespoon or so was plenty.
Press the sides together with a fork.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 12-16 minutes or until they start to turn golden.
Allow them to cool completely.
Mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar with milk, adding milk 1 tablespoon at a time until you get the consistency you want. I used about 3-4 so it would drizzle nicely.
Add 1-2 teaspoons of vanilla extract (depending on taste preference.)
Drizzle onto pastries and add any sprinkles or other decorations you would like.
I hope you enjoyed this recipe! If you decide to try it out, don't forget to tag me in your pictures.
Love and lemons,
