Homemade Pop-Tarts @Prudent Baby

While  visiting Prudent Baby ( a while back, I saw a post Jamie (buy her book, had done on making homemade pop-tarts (  The recipe Jamie used was from Smitten Kitchen ( and looked super easy and delish!!  Te best part is that they are MUCH healthier than the ones you buy in the store.  YAY!!
I started making them back then except I took a much easier approach to it.  I never tried making them with the homemade pastry or the filling she makes.  I use store bought pie crust (the cheap is just as good as the Pillsbury) and a jar of whatever flavor fruit preserve we are in the mood for.  I did try using my own pie crust recipe once but My Love says that he likes the store bought better and even though I am a homemade junkie, I agree.  All you have to do is roll out  the pie crust, cut whatever shape you want out, place them on a pan, add filling, cover with another cut out, press edges, poke holes in the top, brush with egg wash and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.  VERY easy and DELISH!!  I make them ALL the time and they are a GREAT, little snack for everyone, especially My Love!!  Here are a few pics from my latest batch:
