Comfort Food: Homemade Pop Tarts

 

Homemade Pop Tarts

1 (15 oz) package refrigerated pie crusts

1/4 cup strawberry jam, divided

2 cups confectioners’ sugar

2 tablespoons milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Colored decorating sugar as needed

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 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.

Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are lightly golden brown, about seven minutes. 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.
