Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop Tarts!


These Homemade 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!


Units Scale

For the Brown Sugar Filling:

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 Tbsp. melted butter

1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon

For the Dough:

2 + 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1 cup cold cubed butter

1/2 cup cold water

1 egg, beaten (for brushing)

For the Glaze:

2 cups powdered sugar

1 Tbsp. milk

1 Tbsp. vanilla extract

1 tsp. ground cinnamon


1. To make the Brown Sugar Filling: In a small bowl mix together the ingredients; 3/4 cup brown sugar, 2 Tbsp. melted butter, 1 Tbsp. all-purpose flour, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, and 1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon. Set aside.

2. To make the dough: In a large food processor, pulse 2 + 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon and 1 cup cold cubed butter until pea-sized crumbs. Now add in 1/2 cup cold water, 1 Tbsp. at a time.

3. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and roll it out to about 1/8 inch thick. Now cut 28, 4 x 3 rectangles, and transfer 14 of them to a lined baking sheet.

4. To each pop tart on the baking sheet, spoon some brown sugar mix and place another half. Crimp the edges with a fork, and poke holes on the top as well. Brush with 1 beaten egg, and bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

5. To make the Cinnamon Glaze: Whisk together 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 Tbsp. milk, 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract, and 1 tsp. ground cinnamon. Spoon glaze over cooled pop tarts and let harden for 1-2 hours. Enjoy!
