Homemade Poptarts

This is another old one.

I’ve always been really interested in making classic favorites, such as Oreos or Poptarts, from scratch right at home.

My family LOVED these homemade poptarts (recipe by Peabody)


Peabody’s Poptarts

pie crust(recipe follows)

good jam(your choice)


Sparkling Sugar

Pie Crust

1-1/2 cups sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shortening
1/4 cup unsalted butter
3 tablespoons cold water
Combine flour and salt in bowl. Add shortening or butter and blend with fork, pastry cutter or your fingers until mixture is fairly coarse. Add water, 1 tablespoon at a time, gently mixing dough after each addition until dough forms a ball. (Dough can also be prepared in food processor. Use the pulse button just until it starts to pull away from the sides. Be very careful not to overwork the dough.) Place dough on a lightly floured surface and roll into a square/rectangle. Cut out long strips about 2 inches wide, and 3 inches long. Repeat till you run out of dough.


1 cup powder sugar

milk to thin

Place powdered sugar in bowl. Pour milk slowly until it has a consistancy of really thick syrup.

Assemble: Take one pie crust rectangle, fill with a tsp of jam. Cover with another piece of pie crust. Crimpe all four edges. Repeat until you run out of pie crust. Bake at 450F for abou7-8 minutes or until slightly brown. Set aside to cool. Once cooled, pour glaze on to Poptart and decorate iwth sparkling sugar.
