I think you all know by now, that I am NOT a food blogger, but every once in awhile I like to share a recipe that we love and use often.
The other day I posted a photo of our homemade strawberry “pop tarts”, on Instagram (@kozyandco), and so many people asked me for the recipe, that I thought I would share.
***Worth noting: There are 2 other “pop tart” recipes under the “FOOD” page at the top of this blog.
These ones were super simple to throw together, as they used a combination of store bought ingredients, and stuff we had on hand.
Strawberry “Pop Tarts”
(makes 8 tarts)
Store bought pie crust
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cut each pie crust into 8, fairly equal sized rectangles.
Lay half(8) of your rectangles on a greased or parchment lined baking sheet.
Top each rectangle with about a Tablespoon of strawberry jam (leaving a perimeter of about a half an inch all the way around).
Lay the other halves of the rectangles on top of the 8 that you topped with jam, and using the tines of a fork, seal each “pop tart”.
Bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
Remove from oven, and let cool.
For the Icing
In the meantime, mix a half a cup of confectioners sugar with a Tablespoon of milk (consistency is key here, if your icing is runny, add a bit more sugar. Too thick, add a bit more milk. You want it spreadable.)
Spread some icing on top of each “pop tart” and top with sprinkles, if desired.
