Pop-Tarts, seems like the iconic American breakfast and snack treat. Great when you are in a crunch and need something quick and easy for breakfast on the fly. These Berry Breakfast Tarts are a hat tip to a store bought favorite.
My husband, loves Pop-Tarts! Since he was a kid, and even as an adult, he has been eating these for years. I remember buying these right after we were married, at least 2-3 boxes to have on hand was a must.
I have to say, this was my first experience with Pop-Tarts. Surprisngly, I came to enjoy them too!
At the time, Chocolate Fudge and Brown Sugar were his favorites. However, Cookies and Cream and Cherry also entered into the picture and it became a toss up!
These berry breakfast tarts are dedicated to him. To keep them a bit more on the healthy side, I focused on just filling them with strawberry and blueberry jam. By the way, this is how I justify eating them although making it a fruit serving might be pushing it.
Pastry: This hails from a classic sweet pastry dough recipe with the addition of fresh orange zest that really brightens up this dough and goes perfectly with the fruit fillings.
I can’t say enough about this sweet and buttery pastry. Delicious just doesn’t describe it enough as it totally melts in your mouth!!!
Store Bought Forgotten
Regardless, I received two big thumbs up from him and he said they were even better than the boxed version!! Woo-hoo! Guess I’m going to be pretty busy in the kitchen making these on a regular basis…..
The best part is decorating these with the powdered sugar and sprinkles. You can come up with our own creative twist with all the colors of sprinkles. Totally replicates the store bought favorite.
Perfect Side Kicks

Hope you give this recipe a try and enjoy it as much as we do!
