Homemade Brown Sugar Cinnamon PopTarts

Homemade Brown Sugar Cinnamon PopTarts


1 box of refrigerated double pie crust dough
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 Tbs all-purpose flour

1 egg
2 tsp milk
For glaze: 

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp milk

Step 1

Roll out one of the pie crusts a little, trim the edges to make a rectangle. Cut the rectangle into four rectangles.
Step 2

In a bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and flour; set aside. In another bowl, whisk the egg and milk. Brush egg mixture on each rectangle. Divide the filling among the four rectangles, leaving a small border of dough.

Step 3

Roll out the other pie crust a little, trim and cut as you did with the first pie crust. Place the top rectangle on the filling rectangles. Poke holes in the top and seal the edges with a fork. Refrigerate raw poptarts while you preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Step 4

Bake poptarts in the preheated oven for 22-25 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool while you prepare the glaze.

Step 5

In a bowl, whisk together the glaze ingredients. Spoon over the cooled poptarts and serve!

Win a Charme Teaposy Gift Set!

For my birthday this year, I received a Teaposy blooming tea gift set. If you have never heard of blooming teas, you're not the only one.

I love tea. So much that when I vacationed in London last year, my only souvenirs consisted of an ENTIRE suitcase of tea. But somehow, I managed to stay oblivious to the existence of these truly beautiful teas! I mean...come on...delicious tea that BLOOMS into a beautiful flower in the tea pot?

As soon as I got home from my party, I immediately went to their website and looked at everything they offered. I spent all of my birthday money on their website. Teapots, teas, cups...I bought it all.

I contacted the company and gushed about how much I loved their products and they generously offered to donate a gift set to a lucky reader! Find out more about this gift set and enter below!! Good luck!
