  • No-Fail Pie Crust, or 2, 9-inch storebought pie crusts


  • ½ cup strawberry preserves, or jam, divided

Vanilla Glaze

  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3-4 teaspoons water, or enough to reach desired consistency


  • rainbow sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out half of the homemade pie crust dough into a 12x16-inch rectangle. Place the other half in the refrigerator. (Or, roll out one of the 9-inch storebought pie crusts.) It should be about ⅛-inch thick.
  • Cut the large rectangle into 8 smaller (3x4-inch) rectangles. Transfer the rectangles to the lined baking sheet.
  • Top each rectangle with about a tablespoon of strawberry preserves, spreading it evenly over the surface. Be sure to leave space around the edges of the dough.
  • Roll out the other half of the pie crust dough into a 12x16-inch rectangle (⅛-inch thick). Before cutting, use the blunt end of a skewer to poke holes all over the surface of the dough.
  • Cut the dough into 8 smaller rectangles (to fit over the filled rectangles).
  • Use a pastry brush to wet the edges of the filled rectangles with water. Place a second rectangle of dough on top of the filling. Seal the edges together with the handle of a wooden spoon.
  • Repeat with remaining pop tarts.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let the pop tarts cool for at least 30 minutes before adding the glaze and sprinkles.


  • When ready, in a medium bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, vanilla, and a few teaspoons of water. Whisk to combine, adding water a teaspoon at a time, until you have reached your desired consistency.
  • Working one at a time, drizzle and spread the glaze over the cooled pop tarts. Then, top with sprinkles. Enjoy!
