For the jam:

  • 1 Cup (175 grams) mixed berries
  • ½ Cup (125 grams) sugar
  • Cup (79 milliliters) water
  • 1 Tablespoon lime juice

For the glaze:

  • 1 Cup (250 grams) confectioners sugar
  • 4 Tablespoon milk
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Drop pink food coloring

For the pop tarts:

  • 2 Pie crust disks
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 3 Tablespoon milk + more for brushing


  • Preheat Air Fryer to 350F/180C.
  • Prepare the jam filling: In a small pot over medium heat combine the berries, sugar and water. Bring to a simmer and cook about 20 minutes, stirring constantly, or until the jam is thick.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the lime juice. Set aside and let it cool down completely.
  • Prepare the Pop Tarts: Lay out both pie crusts and cut each into 8 rectangles. Spoon around 1 Tablespoon into the middle of the rectangle and brush the edges with milk.
  • Top each with another pie crust rectangle. And with the help of a fork, seal the edges.
  • Polk holes in the top of the tart and repeat the process with the rest of the rectangles, creating 8 finished tarts.
  • Refrigerate them for 30 minutes. In a small bowl combine the egg yolk with the milk and brush the top of the tarts with the egg wash.
  • Place 2-4 tarts in a single layer in air fryer basket, depending on the size of your basket.
  • Cook for about 10 minutes or until golden.
  • Repeat with remaining tarts.
  • Transfer tarts to a wire rack and cool completely for about 25 minutes.
  • Once cool, prepare the glaze. In a small bowl, combine the confectioners sugar, milk, vanilla extract and food coloring. Using a spoon, glaze each pop tart and decorate with sprinkles.

Homemade Pop Tarts in the Oven

  • Preheat oven to 350F/180C.
  • Complete steps 2-7 from Air Fryer section.
  • Place tarts on a cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown and flaky.
  • Let them cool completely. Prepare the glaze in step 12 in Air Fryer section.
  • Once cool, glaze and decorate with sprinkles.


  • If you don’t have fresh berries to make a homemade jam, you can use your own jam. 
  • Since Air Fryer temperatures can vary depending on the make and model, I recommend starting with less time, checking for doneness, and then adding more time as needed.
  • Vary up the filling. Try finely chopped apples and cinnamon or a Nutella and chocolate mix. 
  • No matter how well you crimp and seal the edges with a fork, some of the filling may leak out. Just scrape it off the tart and enjoy. 
  • These berry Pop Tarts are good with or without the glaze, your choice.
