House Shaped Pop Tarts (aka The Easiest Recipe EVER)

Hi friends! I am so excited to share the absolute easiest recipe EVER with you! It’s THREE ingredients.

This past year, I have been trying to simplify my life in so many ways—cutting out things that cause unnecessary guilt and, if i’m being honest, lowering my expectations about basically everything. And guess what? It’s working!

With that said, easy recipes (that are fun to make AND cute) are my THING right now. I love a recipe that I can make in 20 minutes and lets me feel good about myself. Haha! Easy S’mores Pop Tarts

Ingredients:
Puff pastry or pie crust
Semi-sweet chocolate chips
Marshmallow creme

Make simple hand pies (you don’t need anything fancy—I didn’t even have cookie cutters for these) and decorate them a little bit. Fill the center of each pie with marshmallow creme and a few chocolate chips. Trim the edges and place on a baking tray with parchment paper. Bake at 375F for 10 minutes (or until they are golden brown).

Feel free to swap out the fillings for anything you love!

    Fun activity with kids ages 5,9 & 10. We did puff pastry but I’d like to try again with pie crust. Not a total failure but not quite as sturdy as the ones pictured. Tasted yummy though.

    Do NOT use puff pastry unless you want giant puffy messes. I grabbed it because I couldn’t find frozen pie crust… Huge fail and an upset toddler over here 🙁

  • Easy, cute and tasty!
    Thank you 🙂

    I made these on the weekend and they were so easy and tasty. I will definitely try them again using different fillings.

  • I love the look of these – super cute! I will definitely try making these next weekend, maybe with a dusting of icing sugar for winter/Christmas vibes!

    Thank you for sharing.

  • so cute! I’ve got overnight Thanksgiving guests and it would super super cute to make these with leftover cranberry sauce for day-after breakfast. 🙂

  • hi elsie! i would love (and i am sure so many others would too) if you would do a post about the above mentioned – lowering your expectations – could you write about a few things that you applied this too and the differences you have seen and experienced? also – have you done this at all in regards to expectations with other people, such as friends? would love to hear.. thank you for considering writing on this topic!!!

  • Oh wow, these are the cutest! What an awesome idea. We have a local restaurant that does homemade tart that I love but I never thought about making my own

    ^^^ A thousand times yes. Been learning this the hard way. And it sounds a little nonsensical, but lowering my expectations has fixed my attitude about so much in life and made it better! Glad I’m not alone!!

    Also, these pastries are freaking adorable. ^___^

  • yum cant wait to try these with apples! love apples + trying a new recipe is on my fall bucket list:

  • did you use an egg wash? or did the doors & decorations bind together just fine without it? so cute!

  • What a super cute idea, I never thought that making pop tarts in general was that easy!

  • Sorry, I am not a baker! Is the frozen pie crust the same as puff pastry? I tried to google and didn’t find a good answer.

    Thank you so much! Can’t wait to make some!!

    • Hi Emily! Puff pastry is what you’ll want to buy. I just updated the post 🙂

    • Frozen pie crust and puff pastry are not the exact same thing, but both can work. Puff pastry puffs up a lot more, but is more fragile than pie crust. You can use puff pastry to make a galette (a thin, unstructured pie), turnovers, sausage rolls, etc.

    This is such a great idea! I always have those ingredients at home. Thank you for sharing!

  • These are so cute! I’ve actually never tried Pop Tarts before (I live in Hong Kong), so this is the perfect opportunity to get a taste of it. And s’mores never fail!! 🙂
