Plum Pop Tarts

Plum pop tarts are a baked mini mildly spiced plum filling with super flaky and delicious pop tarts and topped with the luscious vanilla sugar icing.

Pop tarts are one of the popular pastries of America filled with sugary, jam filling and frosted with the desired icing. They are usually sold pre-baked in packages and can be warmed up in the MW or toaster oven. Today I made plum pop tarts from scratch and seriously all the efforts are worth it. I used minimal sugar in the filling as they plums were super sweet and delicious.

The recipe is adapted from Everydayannie and I just tweaked it a little bit to suit our taste buds. I had some candied orange peels to be used up for and they went straight for the plum filling. The pop tarts were super amazing and my girls loved it to the core.
