Homemade breakfast tarts are so easy to make and delicious to eat! Made from scratch, these homemade breakfast tarts will become a favorite!

I’m sharing a delicious breakfast tart that I make and my family devours. It’s a really simple recipe that you can make-ahead to have on hand for those rushed mornings. Just pull a few out of the freezer and pop them in the oven for about 15 minutes and your family will think you are superwoman. {Well, these small things make me feel like superwoman!}

Here’s how I make them.

Add flour, sugar, salt and butter into a large bowl.

With your hands, pinch the butter and the dry ingredients together until you have a mealy mixture.

Add chilled water about a tablespoon at a time until dough holds together.

Pour dough onto a lightly floured surface and gently turn the dough to form on ball.

Work quickly so your hands do not get the dough too warm.

Cut your dough into six even pieces.

Roll dough and trim to form a rectangle. It’s easiest to trim with a bench scraper, but you can also just use a kitchen knife.

Mix together your filling ingredients. Little Buddy’s favorite is brown sugar and cinnamon, so that’s what I’ll show you how to make in this example. We also love them with fruit fillings. I’ll share those with you another time.

Sprinkle a good amount of filling onto one side of the dough.

Fold one side of dough over the other side.

Press down on the three open edges to close the tart.

Prick holes in the top of the tart to allow heat to escape during cooking. This is a trick my Grandmother taught me when making tarts and pies.

Brush the top of the tart with melted butter. Sprinkle with raw sugar and bake at 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes until golden brown.

    Robin, these are so cool! My husband lives in another state and when he’s home I made batched of food for him to take back. I think he’d like these. I’ll definitely have to do a double batch because BabyGirl will want some too.

    Thank you for sharing!

    Oh, these look perfect! And so much healthier than store-bought ones that are packed with preservatives and who knows what else. Love that they can be frozen ahead of time, too!

    I’ve been wanting to make homemade poptarts! Not that these beauties can be compared to poptarts but these look amazing. And I wouldn’t have thought of folding over the dough like you did. I would have just put another square on top but your method is FAR better:)
