Ingredients

This recipe makes 4 Poptarts

For The Poptarts

  • 2 pre-made pie crusts (refrigerated not frozen)
  • 1/3 cup of your favorite fruit jam or jelly
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 large egg

For The Topping/Icing

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp fruit jam or jelly
  • Sprinkles

Directions

Preheat your oven to 400°.

Roll out the refrigerated pie crusts and using a knife, cut out 8 rectangular pieces.

In a small bowl mix together the 1/3 cup of jam and the cornstarch.

On 4 of your rectangular pie crusts, spread out a spoonful or two of the jam mixture in the middle, leaving a border of approximately 2cm around the edges.

Beat the egg and brush it onto the 2 cm boarder of the pie crust edges.

Place the remaining 4 pie crust rectangles on top of the jam pie crusts and press around the edges with a fork to seal in the jam.

Place the Poptarts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake at 400° for approximately 15 minutes.

Whisk together the powdered sugar, remaining 1 Tbsp jam, and heavy cream. Add 1 tsp of cold water at a time if necessary to thin the icing a little.

Once your Poptarts have cooled, add the icing to the top and place sprinkles on icing before it hardens.

Enjoy!
