Homemade Giant Frosted Pop Tart

Remember when you were a kid, and the ultimate breakfast treat was Pop-Tarts? That tender, buttery pastry crust, with the warm, sweet filling oozing out and the frosting melting on top, always gave the morning meal a little touch of magic. So what could be better than a GIANT homemade version?!

This Homemade Giant Frosted Pop Tart uses a whole sheet of frozen puff pastry for the top crust, and another for the bottom crust. I used an egg wash “glue” to hold the two sheets of pastry together, with the strawberry jam filling sandwiched in between.

This monster tart obviously wouldn’t fit in the toaster, so I baked it for just 15 minutes in a hot oven and then topped it with a sticky-sweet powdered sugar glaze. And to complete the look, I covered it all over with colorful sprinkles.

Would this Homemade Giant Frosted Pop Tart recipe work with other flavors besides strawberry?

Of course! It’s easy to swap out the strawberry jam for blueberry, raspberry, cherry, or mixed berry. You can even dye the glaze with food coloring to match the look of the original. And for a chocolate Giant Pop Tart, why not fill it with Nutella? Mmmmm!

Can I make this ahead of time and freeze it?

Your best bet would be to roll out the dough, make the tart, and then freeze it before baking it. You can pop it in the oven straight out of the freezer, though it may take a couple of extra minutes to bake. But of course, this only works if you have a freezer that’s big enough to store this gigantic tart

Homemade Giant Frosted Pop Tart

  1. Thaw puff pastry according to the package and preheat your oven to 400. While it is thawing you can prepare your jelly. Simply measure out a cup of jelly and add 1 TBSP of cornstarch to help thicken it up. Mix well.mixing sugar into jelly
  2. Once your puff pastry is thawed, it is divided by 3 sections. Using a pizza cutter or knife, cut one third of the pastry, leaving a rectangle. Now take that cut third and then cut it in half. Next, spray your baking sheet and place your rectangle pastry on the baking sheet, then you will take your two halves and place them at the top of the rectangle, overlapping a little, forming one long rectangle. Using warm water, wet your fingers and press the seams together so that the cut pieces form with the rectangle. If you need to trim any of the ends to make sure you have room on your baking sheet, do that as well.cutting edge off of pasty sheetsealing the two pieces of pastry together
  3. Do the same for your second sheet of puff pastry that will go on top. Set aside it you have completed steps 3 and 4.
  4. Next take your jelly and spread a layer down the middle of your rectangle, leaving room around the edges. I did not use the entire cup, but if you would like to make it a thick layer or a thin, it is all your preference….can you really go wrong?jelly added to the middle of the pastry sheet
  5. Next you will whisk your one egg in a little bowl and brush the edges of the puff pastry. This will act as your “glue” between your two puff pastries.egg wash added to the edge of the pastry
  6. Lay your second puff pastry on top and using a fork, make indentions all the way around the pastry. Then you will take a tooth pick and poke holes on the top of your pastry. This will be important because it will puff up while it bakes, but when you pull it out of the oven you can use a clean tea towel and push it down and the air will have somewhere to go.pressing the edge of the pastry with a fork
