Homemade Strawberry Pop-Tarts


I have had homemade Pop-Tarts in the back of my mind for awhile now.  They ended up happening randomly when I found myself with leftover pie crust and strawberry filling.  I sold these at the farmer's market this week and they were a huge hit!  I will be making them again for the next market for sure.


I wasn't planning on posting them so soon, but since so many people were asking me for the recipe, I couldn't make you guys wait!  :)  I'll be sure to post more photo's of the process when I make them again later in the week.

Ingredients
- 1 pie crust (I use 1/2 the dough from this recipe)
- 1/2 cup strawberry filling or strawberry jam (or your favourite flavour)
- 1 tbsp sprinkles

For Icing
- 1 cup icing sugar
- 1-2 tsp milk

Directions

Roll pie crust dough on a flat surface.  Cut out a rectangle from the dough (for regular Pop-Tart size you need to cut it to about 5"x 3").  I used the base of a medium sized Lock & Lock container (think Tupperware) as my cutter.

Place 1-2 tbsp of filling on the bottom crust, leaving approx a cm around the edges for easy sealing. 

Place top crust on bottom crust and crimp edges with a fork. 

Bake in 375 degree oven for approx 20 minutes, or until golden brown. 

While cooling, mix ingredients for icing together.  You want the icing to be fluid, but not runny. 

Once Pop-Tart's have cooled, add icing to taste and sprinkles right away (icing will harden upon standing so if not done right away sprinkles won't stick). 

Enjoy!
