Actually very simple and so much better than the ones in the box. They did not last very long at my house.
pie crust dough (I used the boxed refrigerated dough)
jelly or jam
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 Tablespoons milk
2 Tablespoons butter
pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Cut your dough into squares.
Add a small amount of jam in the middle of a rectangle.
Spread the jam just a little bit and top with another piece and seal with a fork around all the edges.
Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Start checking at 12 minutes.
Remove from pan. Mix up the frosting.
Soften butter, mix in powdered sugar, 1 Tablespoon milk, vanilla and pinch or salt.
If needed add the additional 1 Tablespoon milk and food coloring if desired. (it will be a little runny)
Spread across the top of the pop tarts and add a few sprinkles if desired.
If you can hold the kids off long enough, let the frosting set up a bit.
Thene serve and amaze your family!!
