Foodies: Homemade Pop-Tarts

May 21, 2022

The Foodies decided to take on the breakfast classic, Pop-tarts. We wanted to do something sweet and delicious and we all agreed that Pop-tarts were one of our favorites. For one of the flavors, we filled them with strawberry jam and created an icing with the jam infused in it. For the other Pop-tart, we wanted to make a chocolatey sweet one so we went with classic Nutella. The Nutella Pop-tart was topped with icing infused with Nutella. The final product was crispy yet soft and the filling was perfectly rated in each bite. If you want an excellent, homemade, and filling breakfast option; we highly recommend this recipe.


  • 2 9 inch pre-made pie crusts
  • 1 tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon of chosen fruit jam
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup powdered sugar



  • Preheat the oven to 350 F. Spread out parchment paper onto a baking sheet.
  • Unroll both pre-made pie crusts and cut off rounded ends, creating a square. Cut the squares into 4 sections.
  • Place squares on a baking sheet. Take your chosen fruit jam and spread it into the center of the pie crust. Once done, cover with the other pie crust square. Crimp sides with fingers or a fork to ensure they are closed.
  • Crack the egg and create an egg wash. Place a thin coat onto each pastry until it is slightly yellow.
  • Place in oven for 15-20 or until golden brown on top.
  • Take out of the oven and let cool before covering with icing.


  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine heavy cream with powdered sugar. Mix until it’s thick enough to drip off the mixing utensil slowly.
  • Add chosen fruit jam to the icing mixture until the flavor comes out.
