    Fun, fun, fun!!! Even better is that they tasted way better than store bought pop tart! My DH was so impressed! I used strawberry jam, baked at 425 for about 12 mins, brushed with powdered sugar glaze that included a couple drops of almond extract and then finished with colorful sprinkles. They looked adorable! Thanks for the delicious, easy, quick keeper recipe!

    Five stars! Here's what I did: I used Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts & rolled them out flatter, and trimmed them so I got six 3x5 rectangles out of each pie crust (so 12 rectangles = 6 poptarts). I spread 1 generous teaspoon of strawberry jam on half of them and topped with the other half. Crimped edges & pricked top with fork. Baked at 450 for 8 minutes. I melted some cake frosting and glazed them and used sprinkles too. Family loved them--better than the storebought, they said!

    Totally loved these!! My daughter is allergic to soy and eggs and thankfully, Pillsbury refrigerated pie crust is safe to eat! We used Conchito guava preserves. So good...thanks for posting!!

    Loved this recipe. It was so easy and earned me the titl of "Best Nanna" with the DGSs and friend who is visiting. They loved the taste and I loved knowing what was in it. So easy using refrigerated pie crusts and then I followed ZeeCooks idea of melting prepared frosting to use as the glaze and topping with sprinkles. Easy and looked great. Thanks so much for posting.

    These were really good! So much flakier and tastier than a regular pop tart. I put more fruit filling in them, too. I frosted them with a basic glaze and they were a big hit. I will be trying some variations for sure! Thanks!
