Ingredients

  • Store bought pie crust

  • 1/2 – 1 cup of your favorite flavor of jam

  • 1 egg (whisked for egg wash)

  • Glaze
  • 2 cups powdered sugar

  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  • 3-5 Tbsp. water

  • 1-2 drops pink food dye

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper then set aside.
  • Cut out as many bunny shapes as you can. If you don’t have a bunny cookie cutter feel free to use a flower, easter egg, or whatever other spring related cutter you want to use. Feel free to reroll the scraps until the dough is all used up.
  • Place the bunny shapes onto the prepared cookie sheet about 2″ apart. Fill the center of the bunny with your favorite flavor of jam. Place about 1- 1 1/2 Tbsp. of jam in each one. Spread the jam around making sure to leave about 1/4″ of room around the entire perimeter.
  • Brush the perimeter of the bunny with the whisked egg.
  • Place another layer of dough on top of the filled bunny men to cover up the jam. Try your best to line it up evenly with the one underneath.
  • Use a fork to seal the edges shut. Then poke two sets of fork holes on the top of each one.
  • Brush the top of each one with the remaining egg wash.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • While they bake, you can prepare the icing. Whisk tougher the powdered sugar and 1 Tbsp. of water at a time until you reach a nice consistency. Use the video as reference to see what mine looked like. You don’t want it too thin or it will run over the sides.
  • Add a drop or two of pink food dye. I wanted a nice, light pastel pink but you can use any color variation you wish!
  • Once the pop tarts are out of the oven and cooled, spoon and spread the icing gently across the top. Be sure to not spread the icing too close to the edges since it will naturally drip down on it’s own.
  • While the icing is still wet, top with festive sprinkles and enjoy!
