Back to School Survival: Make your own Pop-Tarts!

Did you know you can make your own Pop Tarts? Yes, you really can and if I were you, I’d get your kids in the kitchen helping you make them. They can make their own combinations of whatever they’d like AND you’ve got them in the kitchen talking about school and slyly teaching them how to cook! These taste really good and that is coming from a NON Pop Tart lover. So basically….it doesn’t taste like cardboard but actually like little breakfasts pies…like they are supposed to!

Pop Tarts
  • Easy Pie Crust
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup milk ( 1 T. dry non-instant powdered milk or 2 T. instant milk + 1/3 cup water)
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Filling:
  • Use anything you would normally find in a Pop Tart. Jams and jellys are great for fruit filling. I also love honey and chopped nuts inside.

Mix flour, salt, and dry milk powder together. Add oil and mix until mixture is crumble, then add water (or fresh milk if that is what you are using). Stir until mixture forms a ball of dough. Roll dough between two sheets of parchment paper to form a rectangle.Cut dough into rectangles 6 inches wide by 5 inches high. Place filling on one half of the dough leaving ½ inch around sides. Fold over and pinch sides together with a fork to close.

Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

    Great timing! Perfect idea for the jars of jam and jelly that haven’t been rotated fast enough.

    So I’ve been wondering, what is a good way to store these if you made a bunch at once? Freeze them?
