Ingredients
  

  • 2 premade pie crusts
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup strawberry jam
  • 3 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 16 to 20 candy eyes
  • sprinkles for decorating
  • food coloring for decorating

Instructions
 

  • Roll out the pie dough to a 1/4 inch thickness in the shape of a rectangle.
  • Use a knife or pizza cutter to trim the edges of the pie dough, then slice each section into 3-inch strips. You can reroll the extra dough you cut off to make two additional pop tarts.
  • On one half of the strip, put 2 tablespoons of jam.
  • Fold the unfilled half of the dough over the filled half and use a fork to seal the edges.
  • Preheat your oven to 375ºF. Bake the pop tarts until golden brown, about 18-20 minutes.
  • Place the pop tarts on a cooling rack and allow them to cool.
  • Place 2 cups of confectioner sugar, 3 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream, and 1 tsp vanilla in a bowl and whisk together until smooth. Add extra cream or powdered sugar to get it to a thick, yet still spreadable consistency.
  • Divide icing into bowls and color with the food coloring of your choosing.
  • Decorate with colored icing, candy eyes, sprinkles, or anything else you prefer.
  • Allow the icing to set for a few minutes before enjoying.

Notes

Make sure that you fully cool the pop tarts before you decorate them. Also, allow the icing to harden a little before you serve them. If you want these to be stackable and keep for even longer, use a more robust icing like royal icing.
