Whether you were allowed to eat them as a kid or wished you could after seeing the commercials, Pop Tarts still fascinate us to this day. Wrapped in grey foil and rock hard there is something comforting about the sugary pastry. Because most Pop Tarts we have had have been stale and crumbly, leaving much to be desired we sought out recipes for homemade Pop Tarts. From sweet to savory, these homemade pop tarts will satisfy your breakfast pastry craving.
The best part of Pop Tarts is the icing and Cooking Classy ensures that the strawberry-filled tarts have a thick layer of powdered sugar glaze.
