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 🙂

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.

Appetizer: Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Cheese Cups
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.

    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!

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

    1. 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!

    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


    1. 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!

    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. “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? 😀

  5. 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.) 😀

  6. 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!
