Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time1 hr
Total Time1 hr 10 mins
Servings: 4 poptarts

Ingredients

Apple Jam

  • 3 cups apple cider
  • 3 apples chopped
  • 3-4 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves

Poptarts

  • 1-2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 box roll-out pie crusts
  • 1 egg beaten

Icing Glaze

  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons Apple Jam
  • 1 tablespoon caramel sauce

Instructions

Apple Jam

  • Combine the apple jam ingredients in a saucepan and heat over medium heat.
  • During heating, stir occasionally, and when the apples are soft enough, use a potato masher (or a fork) to mash up the apples.
  • Continue heating until the mixture has reduced to a jam-like consistency. This will take about 45 minutes to an hour total.
  • Once reduced, remove from heat and let cool.

Poptarts

  • Defrost pie crust according to package directions. Note that if you keep it in the refrigerator instead of the freezer, it will still need to sit out 10-15 minutes before unrolling.
  • Preheat oven to 400 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Mix 1 cup of cooled apple jam with the cornstarch.
  • Roll out the pie crust, into a square if you can (or cut off the edges of the circle).
  • Cut into strips about 3" wide.
  • Spoon the jam onto one half of each strip, leaving the edges uncovered.
  • Brush the edges with egg, and then fold the strip in half so that the empty side of the strip folds over top of the jam. Seal the edges with your fingers, and then press edges with a fork.
  • Brush the top of each poptart with egg and bake for 15-18 minutes.
  • Cool completely.

Icing Glaze

  • Combine all icing ingredients, adjusting the measurements as needed to get the flavor and consistency you're looking for.
  • Spoon the icing glaze over cooled poptarts.
  • Let the icing set, then enjoy!
