Alright, I made these on a whim but they turned out delicious! I think these would be perfect for an Easter dessert table too! The fruity pebbles give the tarts a nice crunch and they look pretty too!
Growing up I remember having pop tarts as a snack. We weren’t allowed to eat them as a breakfast meal although many of my friends did, my mom wouldn’t allow us. As an adult and after having kids, I didn’t buy them for my kids either. However, after having my grandies, I wanted them to experience some of the nostalgic treats I used to have but didn’t want to buy the packaged store bought stuff full of chemicals. I decided I’d make them from scratch and so glad I did because they taste much better!
Making pop tarts are actually easier than you may think and they don’t take long to make either. You can take your favorite pie dough recipe too and use that or you can follow this recipe for the dough. The great thing about homemade is that you can be as creative as you want. I decided to fill these with strawberry jam, ice them with maple icing and topped them with fruity pebbles for added crunch.
They were a hit and were gone so fast! You can fill these with your favorite filling and top them with anything you like. I hope you enjoy them!
Thank you for stopping by.
