Homemade Lemon and Blueberry Pop Tarts

everyone knows those nasty cardboard squares in boxes filled with processed crap. these aren't like that at all! these homemade tart are flakey and filled with fresh blueberries and lemon curd! i love lemon curd you can find it in the jelly aisle. these are easy for anyone since i used premade pie crusts also.

  • 1 premade pie crust
  • Lemon Curd
  • Fresh blueberries, cut in half
  • 1 egg, mixed well
  • sugar

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Place the pie crust on a lightly floured surface. Cut into four squares and roll the remaining dough out into another square if desired.
Spoon a bit of lemon curd on one side of the square, making sure not to go to the edges. Place some of the blueberry halves on top of the lemon curd. Fold the dough in half and gently seal the edges with your fingers. Take a fork and crimp the edges of the pop tart closed. Using a knife, carefully trim off the uneven edges.
Slice two little vents into the top of each pop tart. Brush the tops of each pop tart with the egg wash.
Sprinkle each pop tart with the sugar. Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and cool on a baking rack. Serve warm. 


  1. How clever. I had never thought of making pop tarts myself- they look delicious for breakfast or as a snack with tea ('elevensis' as it is called in the UK).

  2. The lemon and blueberry flavors sound wonderful. Thanks for sharing!
