My youngest daughter loves toaster pastries. If she could have them every morning, she’d be a very happy girl. Before I started making homemade toaster pastries, I would pick up a box or two of Pop Tarts each week at the grocery store and my kids would have them for breakfast in the mornings.

Toaster pastries have always been a treat but with five children, we could easily go through a box in one sitting. Once I discovered how easy it was to make toaster pastries at home, there was never a need to buy them again.

Homemade Toaster Pastries

What makes homemade toaster pastries so easy to make is that I use refrigerated pie crust for the pastry part. I like to keep things simple most mornings, so pre-made refrigerated pie crust is perfect for me.

The filling for the toaster pastries is either our favorite jam or jelly, which at the moment happens to be strawberry or Nutella.

This is a small batch toaster pastries recipe and it will yield 6 toaster pastries. Store the toaster pastries in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days or in the refrigerator for a week.

If you would like to freeze them, after baking with the filling, lay on a baking sheet & place in the freezer to freeze. Once frozen, place in a single layer in a container or freezer bag. To cook, take one out and place in toaster oven until warm. Frost if desired.
