Ingredients

  • 2 boxes store bought prerolled pie crust (4 rolls total)
  • 1/4 cup raspberry preserves
  • 1/4 cup blackberry preserves
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3 tsp corn startch divided
  • 1 egg white

For the frosting

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2-3 tbsp water
  • 2-3 tbsp fruit preserve (for color) optional

Instructions

  1. Prepare the dough. Unwrap the packages of dough and allow them to come to room tempurature for 10-15 minutes. While you wait, preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Lightly flour a surface and unroll the dough. Using a pizza cutter or sharp knife, cut a square into the pie dough, cutting just the edges of the circle off. Save the scraps if you would like to make more pop tarts. Cut four smaller squares into your square of dough.

  2. Make the jams and eggwash. Whisk the egg white in a small bowl and place to the side. Add the fruit preserves and brown sugar/cinnamon to individual bowls. Add 1 tsp of corn starch to each fruit preserve bowl and the brown sugar/cinnamon bowl.

  3. Assemble the pop tarts. Using a pastry brush, line the edges of the pop tart with the egg wash. Place a heaping tablespoon of filling in the center of the pop tart. Place the top piece of dough directly over the bottom piece. Use the pizza roller to cut the edges so they are neat. Use a fork to press down along the edges to seal the pop tart. Place the pop tarts on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

  4. Bake the pop tarts. Place the baking sheet on the middle rack in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown. Remove them from the bakign sheet and place them on a cooling rack.

  5. Drizzle with icing. Combine the powdered sugar, water, fruit preserve (optional), and vanilla extract in a bowl. Lightly stir until it is incorporated well. Use a spoon to drizzle the icing over the pop tarts. Top with your favorite sprinkles. Mangia!
