Pop Tarts~Raspberry

These Pop Tarts are the current hit with my kids. It's incredibly simple to make and tastes fantastic! I used store-bought refrigerated pie crusts which worked well with their favorite jam or spread. We tried various jam flavors and peanut butter; in the end, we all agreed that the raspberry jam tasted the best. This is a fun taste experiment to do with your kids. Since Halloween is just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to use a pumpkin shape cookie cutter, and topped-off the tarts with some colorful sprinkles. So, do play with the different shapes and variety of jam when you are making this. Have fun!

Pop Tarts~Raspberry


1 Packet (2 x 9-inch) Refrigerated Pie Crusts, at room temperature

Raspberry Jam

Egg Wash
1 Egg + 1 Tbsp Of Water or Milk, lightly beaten

Lemon Glaze

1/4 Cup Powdered/Confectioners’ Sugar

About 1 Tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice

Sprinkles (any flavor)

2 ½ to 3 inches Cookie Cutter (any shape)
Baking Sheet, lined with parchment paper


Preheat the oven to 375˚F/190˚C.

Unroll the pie crust on a lightly floured work surface, cut the dough into desire cookie cutter.

Fill about 2 tsp of raspberry jam in a mound in the center of the dough. Lay the second dough on top of the first dough and gently press down all edges with your fingertips. Then seal the edges with a fork. Brush the top of the dough with egg-wash.

Place the filled dough on a baking sheet, and bake for about 17 to 18 minutes or until the pastries are golden brown in color.

To make the lemon glaze: While the pastry is cooling, in a small bowl, whisk together the confectioners’ sugar and enough of the lemon juice to make an easily spreadable, smooth glaze. Spoon the glaze on top of the cooled pastry and top with your favorite sprinkles.

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up! Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
