Easy Homemade Pop Tart Recipe

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 Mom’s new version of homemade pop tarts.

I was also itching to use up some of that delicious jam – and it’s one of the main reasons we ended up here: Phyllo sheets + Strawberry (or Raspberry) Jam + Vanilla Glaze = Phyllo Pop Tarts. It is my bootleg yet awesomely delicious version of homemade pop tarts.

In this house we are all about the quick-phyllo-fix meals and desserts. “We” should really say “I”, but I’m tellin’ you – Phyllo sheets and I are like *THIS*.

What You’ll Need

The following ingredients work together to create an easy homemade version of a Pop Tart, complete with a flaky crust and a delicious jam filling.

  • Butter (melted) – Helps to crisp up the phyllo sheets. You can use margarine or coconut oil for a different flavor.
  • Phyllo Sheets – It’s what we will use as the “pocket” for our tarts. I have used Puff pastry sheets and those work just as well.
  • Raspberry Jam – Serves as the sweet, fruity filling of the Pop-Tarts. Substitute any other fruit jam, like strawberry or apricot.
  • Powdered Sugar – The base for the vanilla glaze, adding sweetness and a smooth texture.
  • Pure Vanilla Extract – Enhances the flavor of the glaze. Almond extract can be used for a nutty flavor, or you can omit it for a simple sugar glaze.
  • Water – Thins the glaze to a desired consistency.

How To Make Homemade Pop Tarts

Here’s a brief step-by-step guide on how to make these Pop Tarts. Got 20 minutes to spare? Make ’em! Got Milk? Drink it with ’em!

  1. Prep: Preheat your oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Assemble the Pastry: Arrange five phyllo sheets on the prepared baking sheet, brushing each sheet lightly with melted butter before placing the next one on top. Spread raspberry jam evenly over the fifth sheet, leaving about an inch border around the edges.
  3. Layer More Phyllo: Place another five phyllo sheets on top of the jam, brushing each with melted butter as before.
  4. Shape the Tarts: Brush the top layer with butter. Use a pizza cutter to cut the layered pastry into eight rectangles. Do not separate them yet.
  5. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the phyllo is golden brown.
  6. Cool: Remove from the oven and allow the pastries to cool slightly on the baking sheet.
  7. Prepare the Glaze: In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and 2 tablespoons of water until smooth. If too thick, add another tablespoon of water.
  8. Glaze the Tarts: Drizzle the vanilla glaze over each tart. Allow it to harden.
  9. Serve: Once the glaze is set, the Pop Tarts are ready to be served.

    These sound delicious! I will definitely make with raspberry jam, and am wondering if I could also make with apricot filling or maybe almond filling? I can’t wait to try these! Thank you for posting.
