A delicious and flaky home made pastry like a pop tart filled with your favorite jam or jelly. This recipe is so easy because you use a pre made pie crust that you find in the refrigerator section of your local market. I used our homemade strawberry jam recipe but you can easily use whatever type of preserve you like.
Drizzle with this vanilla frosting and you have a delicious and fresh breakfast or tea time pastry. So easy and delicious.
Home Made Pop Tarts with Vanilla Drizzle
2 pkgs refrigerated pie crusts
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 strawberry jam (or other favorite)
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk

Using a pizza cutter, cut each pie crust into 6 rectangle shapes.
Whisk egg and salt together.
Brush the edges of the 12 rectangle shapes with the egg mixture.
Spoon 1 TBSP jam in the center of 6 rectangles.
Top each with the remaining rectangles.
Crimp the edges with a fork.
Place on baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 425.
Brush the tops of the pop tarts with egg mixture and bake 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
Cool on pan for 5 minutes.
Ina separate bowl, whisk milk, sugar and vanilla together until it forms a drizzle.

Snip the end off of the bag and drizzle on top of the pastry.

I made a batch of these this past weekend so that the kids and my husband would have them ready for a snack or a quick breakfast treat. You can easily pack these in a lunch box for school or bring to a bake sale or picnic. These pastries can be eaten room temperature, cold or warmed up depending on your preference. We like ours a little warm with a hot cup of tea. Perfect for a fall day- which is right around the corner here in New York! Happy Baking.
