The other day I decided to pump some gas into my car, an activity I don’t usually partake in. I ask my husband to take my car when it’s on “E”. buahahaha πŸ™‚

Because my car eats up a whole truckload of gas, thus taking forever to fill-up, I clean the inside of the car to kill time. I’m very anxious – it’s impossible for me to just sit in the car for those few minutes.

It must have been a while since the last time I pumped gas because I could have done it 100 times over and there would still be another 100 gum wrappers to throw away! AND water bottles. and gas receipts, and napkins…
Why do I keep these receipts, anyhow?? Like, who in the world is going to ask me for my gas receipt?

Also… do you remember when you were allowed to throw garbage out the window while driving? EWWW!! Imagine someone’s chewed up gum slamming into your windshield while doing 65 mph! Could-ah killed ya!

…you should know that I laughed out loud while typing that.

So how do I tie in Phyllo Raspberry Pop Tarts into a gas-pumping story? I honestly don’t know :), but do you wanna talk about turning phyllo sheets into pop tarts?? ME, TOO!

In this house we are all about the quick-phyllo-fix meals and desserts. “We” should really say “I”, but whatever.

Dinner: Butternut-Squash and Spinach Pie
Dessert: Apple Strudel Cake

I’m tellin’ you – Phyllo sheets and I are like *THIS*. 

Recently, my lil’ ones requested Nutella Pop Tarts for breakfast, but because I was just too lazy to go buy Nutella aaaaand roll out pie dough, I asked them to compromise. When I busted out the phyllo sheets, they were more than happy to oblige and enjoy this Mom’s new version of homemade pop tarts.

I was also itching to use up some of that delicious Farmer’s Pick Raspberry Jam by Welch’s – that stuff is SO GOOD! And it’s one of the main reasons we ended up here; Phyllo sheets + Raspberry Jam + Vanilla Glaze = Phyllo Raspberry Pop Tarts. It is my bootleg, yet awesomely delicious version of homemade pop tarts.

Got 20 minutes to spare? Make ’em!

Pop Tarts

  • 4 tablespoons butter , melted
  • 10 phyllo sheets , divided
  • 1/2 cup raspberry jam

Vanilla Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons water


  • Preheat oven to 400.
  • Line a baking sheet with foil.
  • Layer 5 pieces of Phyllo sheets on prepared baking sheet, brushing each sheet with the melted butter before adding the next.
  • Brush the 5th sheet with butter and spread the raspberry jam, leaving a 1-inch empty border around the edges.
  • Layer the remaining 5 Phyllo sheets, brushing each sheet with butter before adding the next.
  • Brush the top layer with butter and cut the pastry into 8 rectangles. A pizza-cutter works best. DO NOT remove the pastries
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let slightly cool.

Make the glaze.

  • In a small mixing bowl whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla and 2 tablespoons water; whisk until smooth and thoroughly combined. If the glaze is too thick for your liking, add 1 more tablespoon water and whisk until smooth.
  • Drizzle each pop tart with vanilla glaze. Glaze will harden as it stands.
  • Serve.

    The phyllo dough is very hard to work with so I had to add more layers hopefully it will cook ok. They look good on ur photo but mine come out ok. They look like they turn out yummy.

  2. Cindy

    Delicious. I used home-made strawberry lemon marmalade spread thin. I also turned the dough 1/4 inch around all edges due to hearing others say the filling spilled out. It worked!

  3. Michael Jacobson

    Just make several squares. I just made 3 big rectangles, with room around the jam, so you get separate tarts.

  4. Ronnie

    All of the jam leaked out and phyllo stuck to the bottom of the parchment. I put lemon juice in my glaze instead of water. Next time I will not cut before cooking and will make sure to grease the parchement.

  5. Ariana

    Delicious! I made these with a raspberry compote instead of jam, and a thin spreading of Nutella in the middle as well. Thanks for the recipe!

  6. Monica

    These look and sound easy and delicious. Can you prepare ahead of time and cook hours later? Like the night before?

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Monica! No, unfortunately phyllo sheets are very delicate and you have to work with them right away.

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      Hi Dawn! I’ve updated the recipe with the needed nutritional info.
      In as far as storing, because of the filling, these will not stay crispy if say you store them in the fridge. However, you can leave them on the counter for a bit, and if they are no longer crispy, you should be able to crisp it back by popping it in the oven for a few minutes before serving. I hope that helps! Have a great weekend ahead!

  7. Leslie

    Yum! These look absolutely amazing! I’m a new follower through Bloglovin & Face. I can’t wait to see what’s next. Yum!

    Hi Katerina

    Thank you for sharing your recipes.

    The Raspberry Pop-tarts look so good and easy…I can’t wait to make them

    I found your web blog off of Pinterest

    I have pinned them to my page for others to enjoy

    I will be back to look at more of your recipes !!!!

    thanks again – happy baking & pinning

      HI Emily! I have never tried freezing these, but I can tell you that if you do freeze them, the phyllo will be soggy when thawed out. These are best when served immediately after baking. Hope that helps!

      1. Katerina Petrovska

        Hi Shawna!
        Possibly! πŸ™‚ I think if it does happen, you can just peel it off… shouldn’t be a problem. You can also use parchment paper instead of foil.

  9. Jennifer Stewart

    Can’t wait to make these for my small child! He loves pop tarts but I hate all the fake stuff.
    Great blog!

    OK…I have a problem with the comment about being “allowed” to throw garbage out a car window….it was NEVER allowed or considered acceptable, just some people with no common sense had to be fined to teach them NOT to do it!

    1. Katerina Petrovska

      “Allowed” as in you weren’t pulled over because of it, nor were you fined for doing it. It should have never been done, of course, but some people didn’t know otherwise. Sooo, what do you think about my pop tarts? πŸ˜€

  11. Heather @ French Press

    these kick ass Kate! who would ever eat those tings out of a box again after looking at these beauties

    1. Mad

      Can’t wait to make these but was wondering, says you get 10 servings but you say to cut them into 8 rectangle s

  12. Valerie

    Ah, scrumptious!! Perfect for a lazy Saturday morning.

    I cannot stand the tedious process of acquiring gas; at least we no longer need to interact with people. (Thank goodness for pay-at-the-pump.) πŸ˜€

  13. Matt Robinson

    Sounds just like my car! How do kids produce that much trash?? So my 13 year old Blake is a pop tart addict, he would love these. Can’t wait to make them for him sometime soon!

  14. Kristine @ Kristine's Kitchen

    Katerina, these look amazing! I so wish I had one right now! Such a brilliant use of phyllo!

  15. How to Philosophize with Cake

    Those look amazing! I can imagine the buttery texture the phyllo would offer. Much better than the original pop tart. πŸ™‚
