Ingredients

  • 2 ready-made pie crusts or make your own
  • Nutella or Biscoff spread or both
  • Metal-pronged fork & 2 teaspoons
  • Small heart-shaped cutter
  • Pizza cutter

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Use pizza cutter to divide the pie crusts into 8 triangles.
  • Using the heart-shaped cutter, cut 8 hearts out of 8 triangles, and place cut-out hearts to the side for now.
  • Using a teaspoon, measure out about 3/4 teaspoon of Nutella or Biscoff spread and place in the center of the triangle, smearing outward, almost to the edge.
  • Smearing a small amount of the filling on the cut-out heart, placing the filling side down onto the pastry, to help keep it stuck down.
  • With point side down, massage the top of pie crust into forming two semi-circles for the top of the heart. Pinch as you go to keep both the top and bottom together, massaging the corners smooth, rounding it out as gently as possible.
  • Once formed into the heart shape, using the fork, press the edges closed all the way around.
  • Repeat until all 8 pop tarts are assembled.
  • Bake at 350 until sizzling and slightly golden brown. Do not leave these unsupervised, they will cook quickly, as they are thin. Keep a close eye on them - enjoy a cup of coffee in the kitchen, or a light snack while you wait and watch.
  • Once out of the oven, be very careful removing them, as they are still warm and pliable. Place them on a flat plate or cooling rack until cooled.
