Simple Eats – Homemade Toasted Pastry Tart

cut open strawberry toaster pastry

A lot of us have tried toaster pastries that you buy in the store, and for many of us it’s an absolute favorite! However, sometimes we don’t want to eat food from the box. This breakfast favorite has a homemade version! When we saw this we just had to share for all the parents (and even non-parents) out there. This one is worth trying.

We found this recipe on See below for the ingredients and directions, and hopefully give it a try!


1 (15 ounce) package refrigerated pie crusts

1/4 cup strawberry jam, divided

2 cups confectioners’ sugar

2 tablespoons milk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon colored decorating sugar, or as needed



  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Unroll the pie crusts, place on a lightly floured work surface, and roll the crusts slightly with a rolling pin to square the edges. Cut each crust into 8 equal sized rectangles. Place about 2 teaspoons of strawberry jam in the center of 8 squares, and spread the jam out to within 1/4 inch of the edge of the pastry square. Top each with another pastry square, and use a fork to crimp the edges of the squares together, sealing in the jam. Use a knife to trim the pastries if desired. Move these filled pastries to the prepared baking sheets.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are lightly golden brown, about 7 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheets. Meanwhile, stir together the confectioners’ sugar, milk, and vanilla extract in a bowl to make a spreadable frosting. Spread the cooled tarts with frosting and sprinkle with colored sugar.
  4. Enjoy!


What an easy and delicious breakfast option to give your keiki as you head out the door in the morning. One of the great things about this recipe is the ability to customize it. Don’t like strawberry? Use grape, or a different flavored jam that you do enjoy.
