  • 2 refrigerated pie crusts (1 box)
  • ½ 20 ounce can apple pie filling
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup (113g) powdered sugar
  • teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
  • Open your can of pie filling and use kitchen scissors to slice the apples inside the can (so they're more bite size).
  • Unroll one pie crust. Use a rolling pin to roll the circle into more of a rectangle shape. Use a knife to cut off the rounded edges, to give you an exact rectangle. Cut the rectangle into 6 equal rectangles, to form the pop-tart crust. Reserve the edges you cut off. Repeat with second crust.
  • Lay out your crust rectangles on a flat surface. Place 1 tablespoon of apple pie filling in the center of half of them.
  • Whisk egg in a small bowl. Use your finger and trace the edges of each of the rectangles containing applesauce with a bit of egg, to help in sealing the pop-tart. Cover the applesauce rectangles with a plain one and seal the edges together with the tines of a fork.
  • Place pop-tarts on prepared baking sheets. Poke each pop-tart with a fork a few times so that air can escape while baking, so they don’t exapnd. Bake for about 13-15 minutes, until golden brown. Cool.
  • Make the frosting by whisking together the powdered sugar and cinnamon and then adding 1 tablespoon milk. Whisk while adding more milk slowly, until you have a thick glaze. Glaze poptarts.
  • Store in the refrigerator, these taste best room temperature or warmed. Warm on 50% power in 15 second increments in the microwave so as not to liquify the frosting. Do not toast, but you can warm them in a toaster oven. Freeze in a single layer for up to 3 months.



  • The original recipe used crockpot applesauce as the filling. Use about 1/2 cup applesauce in place of the pie filling.
  • You can also use my homemade pie crust recipe (double the recipe for 2 pie crusts).
  • Be sure to slice the apples smaller, that way they're more bite size in the pop tart.
  • The glaze won't harden completely but it will semi-dry. You can use heavy whipping cream and it will dry harder than if you use regular or nonfat milk.
