Hi Bold Bakers!

As a professional chef and the host of Bigger Bolder Baking, I am no stranger to taking your favorite store-bought treats and making them over-the-top. This homemade Toaster Oven Pop Tart is every kid’s dream come true, and let’s face it— every adult’s too. While classic pop tarts are single serve, low on fruity filling and skimpy on the glaze, this giant version is made with wholesome homemade pie crust, fresh strawberry jam, and glazed to perfection.

The best part yet: my Toaster Oven Pop Tart recipe was specifically created to be baked in your toaster oven! If you’re cooking from your dorm room or kitchenette, this is the sweet treat for you!

How to Make a Homemade Pop Tart

I bet you never thought you could make a pop tart at home, let alone in your toaster oven. Thanks to my Sweet Creations Nonstick Quarter Sheet Pan 9″x 13″x 1″ I was able to dream up this recipe for a giant pop tart. The pan is exactly the size of a standard toaster oven and lined with ridges all along the bottom. These ridges ensure the even bake on the bottom of my homemade giant pop tart, meaning it’s crisp and flaky from top to bottom!

You start out with my staple pie crust made from flour, butter, water, egg and a bit of powdered sugar. This dough is one of my favorites as its perfectly crispy while still tender. After making the crust, I roll it out to the size of my toaster oven tray and load it up my favorite strawberry jam. The last step before baking is topping the bottom crust and filling with its top and sealing the edges with a fork. Once my pop tart is baked it looks just like a giant pop tart, I can’t imagine anything more satisfying!

Can You Use a Regular Oven Instead?

While I love that this recipe is toaster oven friendly, you can absolutely achieve the same result using a regular oven. This pop tart recipe really is for everyone, no matter what appliances you’re working with. The trick is the Sweet Creations Nonstick Quarter Sheet Pan 9″x13″x1″.

What Flavors Can You Make A Pop Tart?

I chose to fill my giant toaster oven pop tart with strawberry jam because when I think of classic pop tarts I always think of that sweet berry filling. That said, feel free to fill this giant tart with whatever flavor jam you fancy!

How to Make Icing

The top of my homemade pop tart is glazed with the sweetest simple glaze. Made by combining only two ingredients, this glaze is a great recipe to know for icing cookies and all kinds of pastries.

The glaze sets up to be shiny and smooth and can even be colored with all natural food coloring. For this giant pop tart, I chose to keep the glaze a pretty white then top it all of with rainbow sprinkles. Once the pop tart is glazed is really is one of the sweetest looking pastries I’ve made to date. To serve all you do is cut it into squares. After that, there’s only one thing left to do, sink those teeth in!

Where is the recipe??

My store was out of powdered sugar, so I used granulated in the dough. It worked just fine. And for the icing, I whisked 4 egg whites with 3/4 c granulated sugar over a double boiler until not grainy. Added vanilla and beat with hand mixer until thickened to icing thickness. Worked just fine too, hardened like pop tart frosting. I also did individual tarts instead of 1 big one. Thanks for the idea! My kids loved em!

Have you ever tried to remake pillsbury toaster strudel? All the recipes have fruit inside but can’t find one with just cream cheese. Hoping you can recreate it. I love your recipes. Hoping that this might be the next one I save.
