Lightly flour a hard surface with the all-purpose flour and then roll out and flatten your pie crusts to a ¼ inch thickness using a rolling pin.
Use a knife or pizza cutter to cut even 3 inch by 4 inch sized rectangles out of the dough. If there’s leftover dough, combine the dough and roll it out again to create as many rectangles as possible.
Fill half of the rectangles with ½ - 1 Tablespoonful of cherry pie filling.
Use a pastry brush to wet the edges of each rectangle containing the filling with water.
Place the empty rectangles atop the rectangles with cherry filling, lining up the edges.
Press down on the edges of each pop tart with the tip of a fork to seal them.
Spray the tops of the pop tarts with cooking spray and then use a knife to create 2-3 slits on the tops of all the pop tarts.
Cook in the air fryer at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 7-8 minutes or until lightly browned along the edges. You will need to do multiple batches.
Once the pop tarts are done cooking, set them aside to cool.
In the meantime, whisk the powdered sugar, whole milk, and lemon juice in a medium bowl until smooth.
Drizzle the glaze over the cooled pop tarts, top with sprinkles, optional, and then plate and serve cool.
To Store: Place your pop tarts in an airtight container and store them at room temperature for up to 3 days. You can also place them in the refrigerator for 6-7 days.
To Reheat: Use the air fryer at 300 degrees Fahrenheit to reheat your pop tarts for 1-2 minutes.
Be sure to make slits on the tops of the dough before you air fry the pop tarts. This allows the steam to escape from inside and keeps the dough from bubbling up, and allows the crust to cook more evenly.
These pop tarts are delicious with or without the glaze.
If you want flatter pop tarts, use ½ Tablespoon of the pie filling instead of 1 Tablespoon. More pie filling will make the pop tarts more like a pastry.
Be sure that you don’t overcrowd the air fryer. You need to make sure that there is enough room for the air to circulate for these to become crispy.
