Nutella Pop Tarts

I have been wanting to make these for months.  I have had frozen pie crust in my freezer since Thanksgiving and I always have Nutella on hand, so why I didn't make these soon, I am not sure.  But for any Nutella lover, these will be you new favorite breakfast item.  It seriously only takes 10 minutes to make, and 8 minutes to bake.  I took the frozen pie crust out before our morning paddle boarding session, and when I got back it was perfectly defrosted.  I made these for the boys and they wanted more!  I only had one pie crust so I had to promise them more another morning.  I could make these every morning though because they are so quick, easy, and DELICIOUS!!!!

Nutella Pop Tarts - Idea from
Yield: 6-8 Pop Tarts
1 Box of Frozen Pie Crust
1 Cup of Nutella

  1.  Preheat the oven to 400ºF.
  2. Transfer the pie crusts to a lightly floured surface and cut it into 2×3 rectangles. It is easiest to measure the pieces with a ruler, score the crust with a knife and cut it with a pizza cutter. I made mine bigger then this...
  3. Spoon about 2 teaspoons of nutella onto one of the rectangles, leaving about 1/4 inch of space before the edge. Use a cookie cutter or paring knife to cut out fun shapes in the second rectangle. Then place the cut out rectangle over the Nutella and seal the edges together with the tines of a fork. I sealed the edges with my fingers.  
  4. Baking on a cookie sheet for 8 to 10 minutes, then allow to cool.
  5. Drizzle some extra melted nutella over the warm pop tarts.
  6. Enjoy!!
