Ingredients

For the Pop Tarts

  • ¼ cup agave
  • 2 cups mixed berries or strawberries
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 packages of premade pie dough

For The Icing

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons meringue powder
  • 1 tablespoon clear vanilla
  • water
  • Festive sprinkles for garnish

Instructions

  1. Start by making the homemade filling. In a small saucepot, combine the agave, mixed berries and chia seeds over medium-high heat. Cook for 6-8 minutes until berries breakdown and jam begins to thicken

  2. When ready, set aside to cool and preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. Begin squaring off the pie dough. Cut desired squares of pie dough. Should be around 16 squares. You can reroll any unsed dough and make more squares

  4. Line a greased baking sheet with half of the dough squares. This will be the bottom of the pop tart

  5. Scoop a couple teaspoons of jam onto the center of each dough square on the baking sheet

  6. Now dock the remaining pie squares. These will be the tops. Docking the dough creates small holes making for evenly cooked pastry and contained filling.

  7. Top the pop tarts and crimp the edges together with a fork.
  8. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until edges begin to brown. The pastry will remain pretty light in color but have a golden tone

  9. Set the pop tarts aside to cool. Enjoy or top with icing and sprinkles for a festive treat

  10. For the Icing
  11. In a small bowl stir together the powdered sugar, meringue powder and clear vanilla.
  12. Add about 2 tablespoons of water until desired icing consistency. I like the consistency of honey.

  13. Drizzle over cooled pop tarts and decorate with festive sprinkles while icing is wet. Enjoy right away or let the icing dry for about an hour if packaging them up.
