I surprised my kids with some freshly made pop tarts for breakfast. They were so excited when they found out they were filled with cinnamon and brown sugar. The pop tarts were extremely quick and easy to make and they tasted fantastic. My kids and husband gobbled them right up and enjoyed every last bite. I served these pop tarts with a Yogurt and Fruit Parfait and turkey sausage for a fun and tasty breakfast.
- 1 premade pie crust
- Butter, softened
- 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- 1 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 egg, mixed well
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat.
Place the dough on top of a cutting board. Cut the dough into four squares. Roll the cut off strips of dough out and make one more square. Spread a small amount of butter on one side of the square. Mix the cinnamon and sugar mixture until well combined. Spoon a bit of cinnamon mixture on top of the butter.
Fold the dough in half and gently seal the edges with your fingers. Take a fork and crimp the edges of the pop tart closed.
Slice a little vent into the top of each pop tart. Brush the tops of each pop tart with the egg wash. Sprinkle each pop tart with some of the raw brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.
