  • Two (2-count each) packages refrigerated pie crusts (4 crusts total and at room temperature)
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon divided
  • 1 large egg
  • cups confectioners' sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350° degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • On a clean, flat work surface, roll out one pie crust sheet. Using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter, trim off the round sides of the dough creating more of a square shape. Within that square, cut out 6 small rectangles. Set the rectangle dough pieces 2" apart on one of the prepared baking sheets. Repeat with remaining pie crusts, working with one crust at a time. Try to keep the pie dough rectangles the same or a very similar size in shape.
  • In a small bowl, lightly beat the egg and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, flour, and 1 Tablespoon of cinnamon until blended.
  • Brush half (12) of the rectangles with the egg wash and top with a heaping Tablespoonful of the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture, taking care to keep the filling toward the center of the Pop Tart and keep a little bit of the edges clean. Repeat with remaining Pop-Tarts. Take a similarly sized plain rectangle of dough and lay it on top of the filling, pressing the edges to seal together with the bottom half. Use a fork to crimp the edges closed. Brush the tops with the remaining egg wash.
  • Bake for 20-22 minutes or until the Pop-Tarts are golden in color. Cool for about 15 minutes on the pans. Meanwhile, make your glaze: in a medium bowl, whisk together the confectioners' sugar, milk, vanilla and remaining cinnamon until smooth. Spoon Tablespoonfuls of the glaze on top of the still-warm Pop-Tarts. Allow the glaze to set before serving or storing.
