Ingredients

  • 1 package pre-made pie crust or your own homemade pie crust, if you prefer
  • Fruit jelly raspberry, strawberry, or marionberry/blackberry work well!
  • 1 egg with 1 teaspoon water lightly beaten together
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon water + more as needed
  • food coloring
  • colored baking sprinkles

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a sheet of parchment paper over two baking pans.
  • Thaw pie crust according to package directions.
  • Roll out and cut into even strips, then cut into evenly-sized rectangles. *note: to get the scalloped edges, I used a pastry roller cutter with a scalloped edge
  • Place half of the rectangles onto baking sheets covered with parchment paper.
  • Place one lollipop stick on top of each rectangle, toward the bottom center.
  • Top each rectangle with a small teaspoonful of jelly. Just put enough jelly to cover the middle, leaving room around the sides; you want a little bit to ooze out of the sides, but you don't want a big globby mess when they are done baking!
  • Place another rectangle on top of each jellied rectangle, then gently press all sides down to seal. Use the tines of a fork to help secure the pieces together and also create a pattern around the edges.
  • Brush each rectangle lightly with egg wash.
  • Using the tips of the fork tines, gently poke a few holes at the top of each pop tart.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, just until the tops are lightly brown. Allow to cool at room temperature.

Make the icing

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and water until blended into a smooth icing consistency. If needed, slowly add more water, 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until you get your desired consistency.
  • Slowly add your choice of food coloring. I used a light purple Wilton icing coloring and it only took enough coloring to cover the bottom of a toothpick to achieve the color you see here, so start with just one drop and then add more as needed to get your desired icing color.
  • Spread icing over each mini pop tart.
  • Sprinkle immediately with colored baking sprinkles.
  • Let set for about 5 minutes before serving.
