Recipe Ingredients:

Pop Tart Topping:


  • Place into a mixing bowl your flour, sugar and butter and rub the fat into the sugar and flour. Do this until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Pour in a little water at a time and mix in between until you have a soft pastry dough.
  • Flour the worktop, your hands and your rolling pin so that nothing sticks.
  • Roll out your pastry and get it to moderately thin, as remember it is going to be doubling in size and you don’t want them too thick.
  • Using a knife cut them up into pop tart shapes and add a thin layer of jam to the centre of half of them.
  • Using your fingers spread the jam around the piece of pastry leaving a ½ cm gap around the edge, so that you don’t have a jam explosion.
  • Place the second layer over the bottom layer and fork the outside edge. Brush with egg wash.
  • Place in the air fryer on the grill pan and cook for 7 minutes at 180c/360f.
  • In the meantime, make your delicious topping. In a bowl using a hand mixer, mix the icing sugar into the soft cheese. Add in the strawberry jam and mix a little bit more.
  • When the pop tarts have cooled a little pour the mixture over your pop tarts and serve.


You can use just brown sugar in your sweet pastry, but I find it makes it a bit too bland. I use a little spare jam to the topping it saves on using red colouring and gives a better flavour and texture.
