Homemade Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop Tarts.

These rustic Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop Tarts have a flakey, buttery pie crust, with a cozy cinnamon brown sugar filling. Finally, a cinnamon glaze is spooned over each warm pop tart, making them finger-licking good!

So most of us have probably had a pop tart before, and more specifically, the frosted brown sugar cinnamon flavored pop tart. So that’s what we are making today, but soo much better! And not to mention how much cuter they are than store-bought!

The Cinnamon Glaze:

This is the ‘frosting’ to the pop tart, except ours is more of a glaze which we like a lot better! It’s super simple; all you have to do is whisk together powdered sugar, milk, a bit of vanilla, and of course the star of the show, cinnamon!

We also really love these brown sugar cinnamon pop tarts, because first of all they are easy and fun to make, but they also store well! Just keep them in an air-tight container on the counter for up to 1 week, or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.

Now, pop tarts may not be the easiest thing you’ll ever make, since they are a bit involved and time consuming – a labor of love you might say. But if you follow our simple instructions, they will turn out perfect! Plus, in the end they are so worth it.

When you make the pie crust you can do it by hand, but we find that using a food processor makes it easier and less time-consuming! And then from there, the brown sugar filling and cinnamon glaze are pretty straightforward; just mix together the ingredients!

As always, we hope you guys love this recipe, and if you had the chance to try it out, let us know in the comments down below! And tag us on our Instagram, because we love hearing from you!

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon

For the Dough:

2 + 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
