I finally get to share this recipe with you all. It’s one of those recipes that I’ve been so excited about since the day I made it. These pop-tarts are so fun, just looking through the photos makes me happy!

Pop-tarts remind me of my childhood days, though my preferred pop-tarts were the chocolate fudge. But there’s something classic about the frosted strawberry pop-tart.

What was your favorite pop tart growing up?

The reason behind this recipe is actually pretty simple. It was a dreary day and I just wanted to create something really fun, and really freaking easy. I had a string of unsuccessful recipes. Therefore, I wanted to make a sweet treat that I knew I could nail the flavors on and have fun with at the same time.

I was feeling a retro-style recipe because those are always the most exciting for me to create. I’ve made brown sugar pop-tarts and chocolate fudge pop-tarts, but never a classic strawberry pop-tart.

Since I wanted the recipe to be EASY I made one giant tart. And you know, I think it’s even more fun (and special) than individual tarts.

Here are the details

I always begin with the pastry dough, which is basic. I love using a mix of whole wheat and all-purpose flours to give the dough a hearty taste and texture. It’s perfect when baked up with fresh berry jam.

I also like to make an all-butter dough, which makes it flaky and delicious!

And for the jam? Store-bought all the way! Sometimes you just need to keep things as simple and straightforward as possible. There are so many yummy strawberry jams, so I knew that using store-bought was the perfect shortcut for this recipe! I love using the Bonne Maman preserves.

Since we don’t love anything overly sweet, I decided to keep the glaze on the simple side. I just used a little powdered sugar and lots of vanilla. Then I generously frosted the fresh-baked tart. Once you’ve spread on the glaze, you can have fun decorating!

I randomly had the cutest strawberry sprinkles, which were a dream come true for this recipe! So cute and I didn’t need to use a ton of them either, which I liked.

Decorate how you please! Or have your kids do it, they’ll have so much fun!

Buttery, sweet, berry-filled, creamy, and honestly, it’s going to put you in a happy mood.

As I said, this giant tart takes me back to being a kid. There’s nothing I love more than being a kid again. Especially in these late spring and summertime months. So go live out your inner child with these pop-tarts!

  • 1. To make the dough. In a bowl, combine the whole wheat flour, flour, and salt. Add the butter and toss with the flour until the mix clumps together. Add 1/4-1/3 cup cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough forms a ball. Or use a food processor.
    2. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and divide in half. Roll each half out into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle, about 8×16 inches. Transfer 1 sheet to a parchment-lined baking sheet and evenly spread on the jam, leaving a 1-inch border around the edge. Lay the other half of the dough over the filling and seal the edges by crimping with the back of a fork.  Cover the baking sheets and place in the fridge for 1 hour or in the freezer for 20 minutes.
    5. Preheat the oven to 400° F. Brush the pop-tart with the beaten egg and bake for 30-35 minutes, until the crust is golden brown. Let cool.
    6. Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the powder sugar, vanilla, and 2 tablespoons hot milk, adding the milk to thin the frosting as desired. Spread the frosting over the pop-tart. Let the frosting set a few minutes, then decorate with sprinkles. Let sit 1 hour or overnight to allow the frosting to dry. Cut the tart into 9 rectangles. Serve or store in an airtight container for up to 3 days at room temperature.

  1. If I am shortcutting all the way on this one, do you recommend a frozen puff pastry dough, or a frozen pie dough? Thanks for the recipe! Can’t wait to try it. Not sure if the kids will love it but I sure will.

    1. Hi Pamela,
      So sorry, I honestly have not tested the recipe with either, but I think a store bought frozen pie crust would be your best bet! Let me know if you give this recipe a try! xT

  2. I made these with blueberry jam as a treat for my dad’s birthday. They don’t look super pretty, but they taste exactly as you would expect a homemade pop-tart to taste – rustic & delicious!

    Made this tonight. It took me way longer then the suggested 30 minutes to cook. I probably cooked mine over an hour. But it was worth the wait! It was delicious. I made my strawberry jam from scratch, but other then that I followed your recipe exactly. Just perfect! This will be something I make again to bring to a bbq over the summer!

    1. Hey Jessi,

    I finally got to make one of these this afternoon. Mine is LITERALLY as ugly as the one on so I won’t post it on Instagram. However, it is as delicious as can be! I am eating a piece warm, fresh from the oven and smothered in icing. Thanks for the recipe! xo
