For these homemade pop tarts, we are making our own crust. You can use store-bought crust to make them a little faster, but we just love the taste of this recipe, and it’s pretty easy to make.

I used strawberry jam, nutella and apple butter in the center of these. I am freezing them to eat on busy days.

Thank you so much Pam, of Troop Petrie, for giving us this awesome recipe!
