Homemade Pop Tarts

The girls discovered Pop Tarts during a visit to their Grandma's house one summer. I decided to try a healthy (hopefully) and less expensive alternative to the store bought treats. You can also freeze them and reheat tasty treats on demand.

Unroll your pie crust. I am all about using no more then 5 ingredients and love using frozen pie crusts when baking. If I had the time I might make my own crust but with 2 busy girls it is hard. 

Using a pizza cutter trim the edges so that you have a square/rectangle to work with. Using the pizza cutter divide each rectangle into 4 squares.

Place and spread 1-2 Tablespoons of your favorite Big Bad Dad's Homemade Jams & Jellies on each square in the middle. MIDDLE is very important. I spread the jelly and a lot leaked out edges.

I used Purple Haze but think Banana Nut Bread or Pumpkin Butter would be great too.

Fold over the dough and seal edges with a fork. (With extra cut off dough, roll out and make 2 additional squares).

Place on cookie sheet for baking. Bake at 450 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

After baking remove for cooling and prepare glaze by mixing powdered sugar and  milk until desired consistency. Drizzle or spread on top of pop tarts and allow to cool. If you want to jazz up your homemade pop tarts and sprinkles or colored sugar before icing cools.
