Strawberry "Pop Tarts"

I think you all know by now, that I am NOT a food blogger, but every once in awhile I like to share a recipe that we love and use often.

The other day I posted a photo of our homemade strawberry "pop tarts", on Instagram (@kozyandco), and so many people asked me for the recipe, that I thought I would share.

***Worth noting:  There are 2 other "pop tart" recipes under the "FOOD" page at the top of this blog.

These ones were super simple to throw together, as they used a combination of store bought ingredients, and stuff we had on hand.

Strawberry "Pop Tarts"

(makes 8 tarts)

Store bought pie crust
Strawberry jam
Confectioners sugar
Sprinkles (optional)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Cut each pie crust into 8, fairly equal sized rectangles.
Lay half(8) of your rectangles on a greased or parchment lined baking sheet.
Top each rectangle with about a Tablespoon of strawberry jam (leaving a perimeter of about a half an inch all the way around).
Lay the other halves of the rectangles on top of the 8 that you topped with jam, and using the tines of a fork, seal each "pop tart".
Bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until crust is golden brown.
Remove from oven, and let cool.

For the Icing
In the meantime, mix a half a cup of confectioners sugar with a Tablespoon of milk (consistency is key here, if your icing is runny, add a bit more sugar.  Too thick, add a bit more milk.  You want it spreadable.)
Spread some icing on top of each "pop tart" and top with sprinkles, if desired.
