3 Pie Inspired Pop-Tart Recipes


One morning I woke up with a real hankering (yes, hankering) for a slice of pie. So I thought it would be fun to create pie inspired homemade pop-tarts. I made three different flavors; pumpkin pie, pecan pie and apple pie! These are super easy to make and you can cut them out to be traditional rectangle-shaped tarts, or you can use any large cookie cutter to make your pop-tarts into cute shapes (I made hearts!).


All you need to whip up a batch of these for yourself is puff pastry and your choice of 'pie' fillings. You can buy puff pastry in most grocery stores, in the freezer section. Many local bakeries will make and sell puff pastry as well, but if you can't find any where you live you can make your own. There are many recipes available online. 


For the apple pie pop-tarts I made the filling with 1 peeled and finely chopped apple (I used granny smith, but any variety is fine), 3 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 tablespoon sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix together and fill your tarts. I garnished these with a little more cinnamon and sugar.


For the pumpkin pie pop-tarts I made the filling with 1/2 cup pumpkin, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1/4 cup ricotta cheese, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon, and a pinch of nutmeg. Mix together and fill your tarts. I garnished these with a thick glaze made of 3 tablespoons melted butter, 1 tablespoon cream, 1/2 cup powder sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg.


For the pecan pie pop-tarts I made the filling out of 1/3 cup pecans, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and 2 tablespoons corn syrup (you could use honey if you don't like or don't have corn syrup). Mix together and fill your tarts. I garnished these with a few more pecans and cinnamon.

Once you have filled all your tarts place your second puff pastry piece on top and crimp the edges of each tart using a fork. Bake at 350 F for 15-20 minutes until the tarts are puffy and golden brown. Let them cool a minute or two and then garnish as you like. Enjoy! Emma

  • I love this! you always have the best and most random (yet SO very appreciated) recipes and craft projects!


  • Yum!! I made homemade pop tarts a while ago, they were so good! Pop tarts are so hard to get here so it’s nice being able to make your own 🙂 great recipe!!



  • I have never had a pop tart, but these sure look delicious. And, you know, anything pumpkin will do… 🙂

  • These look yummy! Once I’ve tried your recipe of pumpkin pop tarts and my family loved it.
    Unfortunately, I did’t. I just don’t like pumpkin but either way, they look fantastic.
    Thanks for great recipes:)

  • what a lovely idea! so cute! I’m thinking to make some halloween inspired ones…maybe I can find some pumpkin cookie cutters!

  • These look amazing! I am going to attempt to make some tomorrow!



  • Oooo I like it! I’ve never tried ricotta in my pumpkin pie filling, I’ll have to give that a try. I like that I don’t have to make an entire pie, either. With only two of us, an entire pie gets a little overwhelming!

  • My Hubby would love these! Going to surprise him this weekend with some poptart pies!

  • pure brilliance. seriously…im going to make these. today!
