  • 15 oz refrigerated pre-made pie crust dough
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp strawberry preserves
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup pink sugar sprinkles
  • 1 egg to make the egg wash
  • 1 tbsp water to make the egg wash


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • In a bowl, beat the egg and water to make the egg wash.
  • Roll out the pie crust dough to about a 1/4 of an inch thick over parchment paper.
  • Cut out 3×5 rectangle shapes from the dough. You can use an index card as a guide if you have one.
  • Roll the leftover dough into a ball then roll it out again to a 1/4 of an inch thick and repeat the same steps until you’ve used up all of the pie crust dough.
  • Add about 1 tbsp of the strawberry preserves to half of the dough rectangle shapes.
  • Brush the edges with the beaten egg to make it easier to close.
  • Close the pop tart by topping them off with another piece of the dough rectangle. Repeat the same steps until you have put together all of the strawberry pop tarts.
  • Use a fork to seal the edges of the pop tarts.
  • Poke holes on top of each pop tart with a fork and brush the top and edges with egg wash.
  • Bake them in a parchment paper lined baking sheet at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until golden.
  • Remove them from the oven and let them cool down completely.
  • In a bowl, mix together the heavy cream and powdered sugar.
  • Top the completely cooled pop tarts with homemade icing and sprinkles before serving.


  • Don’t over fill the pop tarts, otherwise the filling will come out from the sides during baking.
  • Substitute the strawberry filling with any other fruit filling of your choice.
  • If you can’t find preserves, you may use jelly or jam instead.
