These Phyllo Dough Pop Tarts are a showstopper!! No one will ever know how EASY they are to make!!
A few days ago we celebrated my oldest sister Becky’s birthday. My other sisters and I really wanted to make the day special for her, so we pulled our ideas together to make the decor as Pinterest-y as possible (since Becky is the artsy one, the stakes are high for the rest of us). Thankfully we had a lot of help from Pinterest!
I was mostly in charge of the food (meaning cake and breakfast), so my sisters take all the credit for the beautiful decor. Everything turned out lovely! The theme was gold and pink, and they were really able to pull it off! Abby made the gorgeous “air balloon” centerpiece, and we even found flowers to match the whole color theme.
For breakfast I wanted to make something light and easy, but still a festive treat. That’s kind of hard to think about since all the fancy-looking desserts take a while to make. So it was back to Pinterest for ideas. I knew I had some Phyllo Dough in the freezer, and when I saw these Phyllo Dough Pop Tarts recipe, I knew I had the perfect breakfast!!
It literally took me no time to assemble these pop tarts, and soon I had a delicious dessert/breakfast done in less than an hour! Now that’s what I call a great Pinterest find!
As much as I love traditional Pop Tarts, I’m so glad I found a great substitute for the times I’m in a pinch and I need something fast! And let me tell you, they are super delicious! These were a great success in our family, and everyone loved them!
These will definitely make their appearance on our breakfast table again! What’s great about these is that you can use any jam you have on hand. I had raspberry jam and Nutella on hand so that’s what I used, but I can only imagine how delicious these would taste with strawberry, berry, or even apricot jam. Oooh! Now I want to make them again to try all the different flavors possible!!
I mean, who doesn’t love phyllo dough with just about any filling? I know I do!
So the next time you want to impress your guests, make these Phyllo Dough Pop Tarts! They’ll think you’re a genius and a great baker, but only you and I will know the secret: these pop tarts are easy peasy, and you just saved yourself an hour of baking!
Have a Sweet Day!

Raspberry & Nutella Phyllo Dough Pop Tarts
1 lbs. box of phyllo dough
1 cup raspberry jam
1 cup nutella
1 stick of butter (melted)
For the icing:
1 1/4 cups of powdered sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. lemon juice
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. In a 9×13 in. pan place five sheets of phyllo dough, brushing each one with melted butter. Spread about 3/4 – 1 cup of raspberry jam over the entire surface of the dough. Place another five sheets of phyllo dough over the jam, making sure you brush each one with melted butter. Repeat the process with Nutella. Pre-cut the pop tarts in the pan (leaving them in the pan) before you bake them for about 15-20 min. Make sure you they’re not overly golden brown as they tend to dry out too much and become too crunchy. You want a light golden. Remove from oven and let them cool a little.
To make the icing, mix the powdered sugar, vanilla, lemon juice and as much milk as you need to make a thick but pourable icing. Drizzle the icing over the pop tarts and enjoy! Serve with fruit and whipped cream!
