Blueberry Pop Tarts

by Emma on September 23, 2011

in Breakfast

I love homemade pop tarts. I first realized how easy they were to make when I made some pumpkin pie pop tarts last year. The morning I made these I didn’t really have enough puff pastry, I just had a little bit left over from a cobbler I had made over the weekend. So I decided to make mini versions with blueberries.

I actually really loved the mini versions as you can have one or two with an over easy egg for a full breakfast, or you can just take one on your way out the door for an easy and delicious morning snack.

Warning: if you eat these ‘on the go’ you will arrive at your destination with flaky bits of crust on your blouse or dress. If you feel like have tiny bits of food on you is an acceptable way to be… well… join the club.

These little treats were simply made with puff pastry cut into rectangles, filled with blueberries that had been coated in sugar and then the pastry edges were crimped with the edge of a fork.

Bake at 350 for 22-28 minutes until golden and crispy.

I then made a simple glaze out of 4-5 tablespoons melted butter with 1 tablespoon cream and powdered sugar whisked in. I just kept adding powder sugar until I got the consistency I wanted, I think I used about 3/4 cup by the end.

You could fill these with any type of fruit filling you prefer.

Or you could get crazy and fill them with bananas and peanut butter or maybe…. like… nutella. Just saying.

Wanna see the behind the scenes of a food blogger’s kitchen table:

Sort of a mess, huh? Don’t worry my kitchen table isn’t always this bad…. but it’s not always clean like you see in my pictures either.

Smoke and mirrors.

Emma,
These look divine! I know have the perfect Sunday morning treat to make my family when I go visit them in Maine next month. You see, there is a surplus of native Wild Blueberries there that will change your life.

Thank you for the recipe!
Cheers!

I’ve been wanting a pop tart since I was pregnant over a year ago. I’ve managed not to indulge because I’m afraid once I get on that train.. I just won’t get off. But now that I know I can make them at home AND I have all the ingredients on hand.. YAY. POP TARTS.

i always forget how amazing and easy puff pastry is!! i will be running out and getting some to do this. This is also delicious with any kind of fruit jam if you don’t have whole fruits (or you know, are lazy like me). also – never thought to do butter in that glaze, always just do water or milk or lemon juice + powdered sugar… is the butter for a specific reason or just tasty?

Emma September 23, 2011 at 10:08 pm

the butter is just for taste. and i like how it will get solid if I store left over pop tarts in a air-tight container for a day or two.

yeah, love puff pastry. it’s a staple for any shopping list if you ask me. :)

WHAT!? I’ve never even thought about making Pop Tarts! That sounds so amazing! The little girl I nanny for is named Poppy and I call her Pop Tart but she’s never had one before. We cook together all the time and she would have so much fun making these! She’s my sous chef!

They look so yummy.
I love playing around with puff pastry and fill it with all kinds of things. Sweet and savory.

Janette September 23, 2011 at 6:28 pm

OH! I totally want to try this.. I think Pop Tarts at the story have gelatin and I don’t eat piggy products so they are a big no no! But this is a fancy alternative.. THANKS!

My dining room table is currently covered in dishes, milk bottles to return and paperwork for my husband’s 401(k). I’m always having to move things out of the way to take photographs!

I used to love pop tarts, but haven’t had one since I started trying to avoid processed foods. It’s nice to know I can still have a pop tart! :-)

dena miller September 23, 2011 at 8:05 pm

Pop tarts are the greatest!!! Yours look so good!!! Truly a tart to pop♥

Mandy @ Miss Indie September 25, 2011 at 6:07 pm

Emma these look delish! I don’t really eat poptarts anymore because they’re so dry and cardboardy now, but these I will eat. :] And don’t worry, my kitchen table looks just as bad, haha.

Emma September 25, 2011 at 8:57 pm

I agree, the store bought kind are a little on the cardboard-side. :)

Erin September 26, 2011 at 12:55 am

Wow. Is it wrong that I saw these and decided I’d make them on a day when the fam is out just so I could enjoy them by myself? Sad, but so true. Who would want to share this kind of deliciousness?

Marie-Claire September 28, 2011 at 3:28 am

YUM!

Caity September 28, 2011 at 8:57 pm

I live in Australia, and pop tarts aren’t really a big thing, but these looked delicious so I made them the other day and they were devoured within seconds!! Thanks for all the great recipes xox

VeganVintageGal October 15, 2011 at 5:44 pm

Thanks so much for this idea, Emma! I made a vegan version this morning using fresh sweetened strawberries for the filling. Dangerously delicious and perfect for weekend mornings with coffee and a good read.

Isobelle October 16, 2011 at 5:01 pm

These look incredible

Burgess November 2, 2011 at 6:56 pm

I made these with raspberries….now my mind is reeling with possibilities :)

Paige December 2, 2011 at 1:07 am

What would you do to this recipe to make it a Cinnamon Pop Tart? Please respond. It looksso good ;)

Emma December 2, 2011 at 3:23 am

Hey darling… I’ve never tried that before, but try filling them with a cinnamon sugar mixture instead of blueberries. Good luck!
