Homemade Strawberry Pop Tarts have a sweet, slightly flaky pastry, are filled with strawberry jam, and iced with a simple vanilla glaze and sprinkles. This copycat recipe is SO much better than the sickly sweet store-bought version!
Once the dough has cooled and rested, flour your work surface to roll out the dough. Roll the dough into a rectangle, about 3 feet in length, 8 inches in height, and about ⅛ of an inch thick. Using a pastry cutter, pizza cutter, knife or bench scraper, cut the dough into rectangles 3 inches wide x 4 inches in height. You should be able to cut between 18-20 rectangles depending on how thick the dough has been rolled.
While the pop tarts are baking, in a small bowl, whisk together the sifted powdered sugar, vanilla, milk, and corn syrup, mixing until smooth. The glaze should be thick, but not too thick to spread.
Leave to set for 30 minutes to 1 hour before eating, or at least 3 hours (or until they are dry to the touch - this will depend on your kitchen environment) before stacking on top of each other, to prevent the glaze from getting messed up and smearing, or sticking to the bottom of the pop tart placed on top of it.
Optional: After crimping the edges, you can trim the edges of each Pop Tart with a sharp knife or pizza cutter for a super-straight, perfect finish!
