Black Section Separator

Homemade Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pop-Tarts are a year-round delight that's easier than it looks. They beat store-bought with homemade pastry, brown sugar cinnamon filling, and cinnamon glaze!  


For the crust – 2 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour – 2 tablespoons granulated sugar – 1 cup cold salted butter cut into small cube – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 1/2 cup cold water For the filling – 1/2 cup light brown sugar packed – 1 tablespoon salted butter melted – 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour – 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon For the glaze – 1 cup powdered sugar – 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon – 1 - 2 tablespoons milk – 1/2 teaspoon 


Process flour and sugar. Occasionally pulse to mix. The cold cubed butter should be broken up and no larger than a pea when added and pulsed. Add vanilla.  

Step 1

While the food processor runs, slowly add water. Make sure the crust comes together without overmixing. Shape the crust into a ball and wrap it with plastic.  

Step 2

Chill in the fridge for 20–30 minutes. Heat the oven to 400°F. Lay parchment paper on a big sheet tray and set aside. Mix brown sugar, butter, flour, and cinnamon to make the filling.  

Step 3

Set aside. Roll the dough into a 1/4-inch rough rectangle on a lightly floured, clean surface. Cut rectangles from dough using a 3×4 inch cookie cutter or equivalent size.  

Step 4

Roll out the scraps of dough again to cut more rectangles. We need 12 parts. Six crusts should be placed on the sheet tray without touching.  

Step 5

Fill each crust with about 2 teaspoons of filling, leaving a ¼ inch border around the edges. Cover with another crust and press edges gently. Press edges with a fork to seal.  

Step 6

Use the same fork to make 6 rows of ventilation holes in the tarts' centers. Bake 15-18 minutes till golden. Let cool fully. For the glaze, mix powdered sugar, cinnamon, milk, and vanilla.  

Step 7

A thick, pourable glaze is best. Add 1 tablespoon milk to desired consistency. A wire rack above a sheet tray collects tart drips. Glaze tarts. Glaze for 20 minutes.
