Homemade Pop Tarts

My girls love pop tarts.  All that high fructose corn syrup and 16 g of sugar!  How can we not love them? 

After threatening to never make them again.  I decided to make my own.  I used a recipe from smitten kitchen.

I made a few different sizes.  The girls seems to enjoy the smaller ones. 

I used the cinnamon filling and it got nice and gooey just like real poptarts. 

I have two tips for this.  #1-Assemble the poptarts on the pan that you plan to bake them on.  There were quite a few that I assembled and then the filling spilled out when I was moving it. 
Because of that, I learned by accident....
#2-Put some of the filling on the table, with the flour that you're rolling the dough in.  It gives the dough a little extra flavor. 

Here they are right before they went into the oven:
