DIY Strawberry Pop-Tarts


  • 1 box Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 jar strawberry preserves
  • Egg wash (one beaten egg and 2 tablespoons milk)

For the glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon melted butter


Preheat oven to 350 and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Unroll the pie crust and cut it into four equal rectangles.

Brush the pastry with the egg wash. Scoop 1 tablespoon of jam into the center of the pastry and spread lightly. Place the additional pastry crust on top and crimp with a fork to seal the edges. 

Brush the remaining egg wash on the top of each pastry.

Bake pop-tarts for 20-25 minutes until golden.

While the pop-tarts are in the oven, mix the glaze ingredients in a bowl.

Allow pop-tarts to cool before adding the glaze and sprinkles.

Store in an airtight container. Eat as is or warm up in microwave. Enjoy!
