Homemade Holiday Pop Tarts

Homemade Holiday Pop Tarts


• 16 slices of Turano Rustic Italian
• 2 cups powdered sugar
• 1 tbsp meringue powder
• 3 tbsp whole milk
• 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
• 2/3 cups jam of your choice (we used raspberry)
• Holiday sprinkles


① Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Start by removing crust from each slice of Rustic Italian to make a rectangle shape from the bread. (Save and cube the crust pieces to make croutons!) Take a rolling pie and roll out each piece of Rustic Italian so that it’s thinner.
② Place 8 pieces of the rolled bread down and fill the center with the jam, leaving room on the sides to close the pop tart. Top each jam filled piece of bread with another piece of rolled bread and press the edges to seal with a fork. Make sure all edges are sealed. Brush the bread with melted butter and place in the oven for 10 minutes or until golden.
③ Remove the pop tarts from the oven and let cool. In a bowl, stir together the powdered sugar and meringue powder. Add the milk and vanilla, and stir until smooth. The icing will be thick, but should slowly run off a spoon.
④ Immediately spread the icing onto the pop tarts with a small icing spatula or the back of a spoon. Since the icing will set very quickly, you have to add the sprinkles right away to each pop tart as you ice it. So ice a pop tart, then add the sprinkles. Ice another pop tart, and add the sprinkles, and so on. Have fun and enjoy!
