  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Unroll the pie crusts, place on a lightly floured work surface, and roll the crusts slightly with a rolling pin to square the edges. Cut each crust into 8 equal-sized rectangles. Place about 2 teaspoons of strawberry jam in the center of 8 squares, and spread the jam out to within 1/4 inch of the edge of the pastry square. Top each with another pastry square, and use a fork to crimp the squares together, sealing in the jam. Use a knife to trim the pastries, if desired. Move the filled pastries to the prepared baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are lightly golden brown, about 7 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheets. Meanwhile, stir together the confectioners' sugar, milk, and vanilla extract in a bowl to make a spreadable frosting. Spread the cooled tarts with frosting and sprinkle with colored sugar.

So much fun to make! I used the French Pastry Pie Crust recipe by TJ and some of my sister's homemade grape jelly, and didn't frost them. I wish I had poked holes in the top of them with a fork ...

These were DELICIOUS! I didn't have pie crust on hand and I only had whole wheat flour, so I used the recipe for "Basic Flaky Pie Crust" by stephanie and they were still great! My kids had a bla...

Great recipe! This was so much fun to do with my niece. It produced great results and tasted really good too. The icing was a bit on the sweet side, but that's kinda how I remember pop-tarts ...

Better then poptarts which I can't stand. But, I think they would be even better with a pie filling. You do need to add a good glaze onto them.

Kids flipped for this. We had a blast this morning making these. We used both strawberry preserves and blackberry-currant jam. This was a VERY special treat. NOTE: I would like to try this with ...

So easy! We just cut our pie crust into 8 "slices" per crust and poked holes in the top crust with a fork. We didn't bother with the icing as it was so yummy by itself!

These were delicious! Very easy to make. I didn't worry about squaring up my dough. I just rolled both doughs out slightly, folded them in half, and then cut each into 4 pieces. Carefully un...
