Adorable & Tasty Mini Pop Tarts

Today, I have a major case of the Mondays. I know I always do, but it dawned overcast and 53 degrees today. In May! Then there was the slight matter of Des getting his head stuck in our coffee table. He’s fine, save for a bruised ego and a red chin. Now I sit here, and realize it’s time to bring out the big guns. Homemade Pop Tarts.

Homemade MINI Pop Tarts.

Are you looking for the most adorable, tasty & crowd-pleasing recipe ever? Make Mini Pop Tarts! They're easy to make, & awesome for any parties or brunches.

How could you not, right? We had an awesome weekend, as usual, but this one was bigger than most. On Friday night, we got a sitter for Des and took Scarlet to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2. I don’t want to ruin it for anyone, but I liked it even more than the original, and the original was pretty darn amazing. Remember when Cassidy made a DIY, homemade Groot costume, and Scarlet dressed up as Rocket Raccoon? Surely, you DO remember?

I’ll refresh your memory anyway.

No spoilers. Gosh, this is hard. Well, it’s AS funny as the original and quite possibly even more funny. I love that it got me in the heart. I have father issues, somewhat similar to Peter Quill’s, and also not AT ALL, but just work with me here. This movie made me laugh and cry and reach for Scarlet’s hand. What more do you need in life?

Also, there were Gummi Bears in her hand, so what more could you need? Well, Mini Pop Tarts.

On Saturday, we had our little city’s annual Pride Parade & Rally. There was nothing little about it, and I’ll update about that in an entirely different post. There will be as much color there, as there is here today. More!

Sunday was on the gloomier side with weather, but my father-in-law joined us for a delicious breakfast at Silver Spoon and helped Cassidy garden for hours. Then we all just.. got stuff done. Lots of home/work stuff.

Like Mini Pop Tarts!

The suspense has gone on long enough, so here’s the recipe. Let me know if you have any questions, and please show me pictures if you successfully make them! And, if they last long enough to take pictures. They go fast!

Mini Pop Tarts

Mini Pop Tarts


  1. 1 pkg. Pillsbury Pie Crusts
  2. 1 Can Strawberry Pie Filling
  3. 1 Can Vanilla Frosting
  4. Food Coloring
  5. Sprinkles and Jimmies


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • 2. Take both round pieces of pie crusts and trim off the edges so you have two square pieces the same size
  • 3. Divide the frosting into three small bowls and mix food coloring into two of the bowls with your choice of color, and leave one bowl of frosting white
  • 4. On one piece of your pie crust, take a teaspoon and put dollops of pie filling - you can fit 24-30 dollops on the crust
  • 5. Place the other piece of crust on top of this one and cut the dough in strips about ΒΌ inch from each edge of the dollops of pie filling
  • 6. You can see the pie filling through the dough so this is easy to do
  • 7. Using a fork, press along the edges to seal the two sheets of dough together around the edges of the filling
  • 8. Then cut strips the other direction so now you have individual little filled pieces, and press the fork along the other edges to seal together
  • 9. Place the little mini pop tarts on a cookie tray and put a tiny cut into the top of each tart
  • 10. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned
  • 11. Let cool
  • 12. Frost each pop tart and sprinkle with sprinkles
  • 13. Enjoy!

  1. My mistake was having Madison near me while I was reading this. She said “I want to make those”, I guess I’ll be making mini pop tarts in the near future, or I’ll be sending her your way so you can make them for her. πŸ™‚

  2. Ok, these have to be the cutest things I have ever seen! My kids love poptarts and I bet they would love these even more. Hold on, I need to add stuff to my grocery list!

    I can’t wait to hear about Pride and OF COURSE I remember when Cassidy and Scarlet dressed as Groot and Rocket! Ah-mazing!

  7. These look like the yummiest things ever. I want them all right now! Can’t wait to see Guardians 2. I had the chance to meet Chris Pratt last summer at a friend’s house, but we were out of town. I’m still kicking myself.
