Cherry Vanilla Pop-Tart Cookies | Simply Southern Baking

Do you ever have those times when a recipe idea just pops into your head and you say you’ll give it a try some day?  Well, that happens to me all the time…my mind doesn’t stop thinking about new recipes!  I’ve got so many ideas that it would take me years to make them all, even if I didn’t have another one pop into my head!

Several weeks ago, I started thinking of using Pop-Tarts in a cookie recipe and filed it away in my mental “to make later” file.  Yes, Pop-Tarts in cookies….now who wouldn’t like that?  Since I finally had a little bit of time to spare and hadn’t baked in a few weeks, the baking mode kicked in and this new cookie was born.  Oh my goodness…these cookies turned out better than I expected!  When family and friends oohed and ahhed over them, I knew I had a winner.  Let me tell you, they are very addictive!

Cherry Vanilla Pop-Tart Cookies


These easy-to-make cookies would be the perfect Valentine’s Day treat with the pretty pink and red colors.  Be warned:  Once you make these cookies, you better hurry up and put the drizzle on top before the cookie monsters in your house start grabbing them.  My hubby quickly snatched a couple before I could even decide whether or not to drizzle a glaze on top!



Thanks to the folks at OXO, I had some extra help when making these cookies.  As part of their Blogger Outreach Program, I received their new OXO Good Grips 4 Piece Mini Measuring Beaker Set.  These nifty beakers make short order of measuring and pouring small amounts of liquid ingredients.  The set includes 2 oz., 1 oz., 1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon beakers with easy-to-read measurement markings that also nest for compact storage.  OXO also sent along their Good Cookie spatula (shown below) with the measuring beakers (a pleasant surprise).  This handy spatula can be used for lifting small to regular size cookies from a cookie sheet.  50% of the profits from the spatula benefit Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.



Bake a batch of these cookies today.  You’ll feel like a kid again eating Pop-Tarts…in cookie form!

    Wow, what a crazy idea! I would never have thought to do this!

  5. Robin, I was thinking the same thing — there’s no way I’ll be able to make all of the recipes I’ve printed off or bookmarked — but I’ll keep trying! :) Pretty cookies!
