Kitchen Tools Used to Make This Recipe
How to Make Homemade Pop-Tarts
To make homemade pop tarts you have to start by making the Instant Pot blackberry jam.
Add your fresh berries, water, sugar, and lemon juice into your pressure cooker. Follow the directions in the printable recipe card below on how to make the homemade jam.
Now you can work on cutting and shaping your pastries with your refrigerated dough. Roll it out and cut into equal rectangles. Then take a bit of the blackberry jam and spread in the center.
Place the top of the pie crust on, and use your fork to crimp down the edges.
Bake in a preheated oven, and while they are baking work on your blackberry icing. Then once the poptarts cool a bit, drizzle on your homemade icing!
How to Store Pop Tarts
I prefer to store these homemade pop tarts in the fridge. I find they will last a bit longer due to the berry filling. Place in an airtight container and store for around 5 days.
Can You Freeze
Or if you plan to want to make extra pop tarts to meal prep with, go right ahead and freeze your pop tarts. Then pull one or more out of the freezer and warm them up!
Can I use this blackberry filling to make a blackberry cobbler recipe
The beauty of this blackberry jam recipe is yes, you can use it for a blackberry cobbler if you would like. I would just not use the emulsion blender to get it a mushed up texture.
I would leave the berries larger. But it is totally up to you on what you prefer texture-wise.

Blackberry jam (or other fruit!):
- 2 pounds fresh blackberries (or other berries)
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- Cornstarch, to thicken
- 1 (14.1 ounce) package rolled pie crust
- 1 cup blackberry jam
- 1 large egg, whisked
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tablespoons skim milk
- 2 tablespoons jam
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- Add berries, sugar, water and lemon juice to the inner pot. Close the lid on the Instant Pot to seal. Close the sealing valve and set for a high pressure time of 3 minutes, allowing for a natural pressure release.
- After the natural pressure release time (no more than 15 minutes), release any remaining pressure and carefully open the lid.
- Use an immersion blender or potato masher to mix the jam. To make the jam thicker, you can add cornstarch a tablespoon at a time, mixing with the immersion blender before adding more.
- Pour jam into a large bowl or Mason jar to let it cool.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- On a flat surface, roll out the pie crust. Press down and roll out a little with a rolling pin.
- Use a 3x5 index card or a pastry cookie cutter to cut out the pie crust. Cut out all the pie crust and then form a ball with any excess dough and roll that out, and then cut pie crust out with that as well.
- Fill each pop tart with about 1 1/2 tablespoons of jam in the center of the rectangle. Brush egg wash along the edges of the dough, and then place another rectangle on top of it. Use a fork or pastry sealer to seal the sides of the dough.
- Use a pastry brush to coat the top of the tart with egg wash and poke tiny holes in the top of the pop tart to allow steam to release during baking. This will prevent it from bubbling up. A toothpick is great for this.
- Line the pop tarts on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly golden.
- Make the glaze by mixing together the glaze ingredients.
- Allow the pop tarts to cool on a cooling rack before adding icing to the tarts.
