Homemade Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Pop Tarts

Homemade Cinnamon and Brown Sugar Pop Tarts

I surprised my kids with some freshly made pop tarts for breakfast. They were so excited when they found out they were filled with cinnamon and brown sugar. The pop tarts were extremely quick and easy to make and they tasted fantastic. My kids and husband gobbled them right up and enjoyed every last bite. I served these pop tarts with a Yogurt and Fruit Parfait and turkey sausage for a fun and tasty breakfast.

  1. I've been seeing these everywhere! The next time I make a batch of pie crust, I'm going to make these. YUM!

  2. Oh what fun Pam. Did you think this up on your own?? You are so clever! I am going to make these with my grandkiddos!

  3. Wow these look great! I've seen other recipes for homemade poptarts, but never one this simple. Can't wait to try it!

  4. These look magical, just looked at your cinnamon roll recipe as well, I am certainly going to try that. Diane

  5. as i think i mentioned in your previous pop-tart post (hooray alliteration!), brown sugar pop-tarts were always my favorite. what did they lack? cinnamon. 🙂

  6. Yum, yum. When I was a child my mom rolled out extra pie dough and sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on top. We ate it hot out of the oven. Heavenly.

  7. Wow! I was never a huge pop tart fan, but when I did have one when I was younger, it was always the cinnamon brown sugar ones!

  8. I can honestly say that I have never, ever thought of making my own poptarts before reading your posts. Such a fabulous and great idea! The next time I have friends in from out of town (or heck, even go to stay with them myself) I'm thinking I'll make these, just for fun!

  9. Nice!!!! i used to eat the store bought kinds all the time o snack on. I need to try making them at home. I'm sure they way better, too.

  10. Oh wow, i subscribed to you through RSS and to my delight when i opened my homepage… oh yes, my kids will LOVE me to death!! Thank you!

  11. What a great idea! Even if you took the time to make a pie crust this wouldn't take any time at all to come together! I wonder how it'd be with some diced apples thrown in. Mmm….

  12. Clever idea! They would be good with fruit in too, although you would have to be careful not to end up with a burnt mouth.
