Strawberry Pop-Tarts

Pop-tarts were one of my favorite treats growing up.  I was always a huge fan of both the strawberry and raspberry flavors, eating them warmed in the toaster or cold for breakfast, dessert, or as a snack.  When I was craving a pop-tart the other day, I decided to take pop-tarts to the next level by making them from scratch.  These homemade pop-tarts are even better than the original!

Now they aren’t an exact copycat recipe, they are more of an elevated version of the original.  The recipe is super flexible so you can adjust the filling to be whatever fruit flavor you want by just swapping what kind of jam you use.  Personally, my favorite has definitely been strawberry! The recipe makes 4 pop-tarts so if you want more, just double the recipe.
