Homemade Fresh Fruit Poptarts 4 Ways

1 cup blueberries
1 cup blackberries
1 cup raspberries
1 cup chopped strawberries
1 cup coconut sugar, divided
4 Tbsp. cornstarch, divided
4 Tbsp. water, divided
2 refrigerated (not frozen) pie crusts
Additional berries for decorating the pop tarts

Glaze (optional)
1 cup powdered sugar
2-3 Tbsp. nut milk
1/2 tsp vanilla

In a small saucepan, combine the blueberries with 1/4 cup coconut sugar, 1 Tbsp. cornstarch and 1 Tbsp. water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until mixture thickens to the consistency of jam, about 10-15 minutes. Repeat the process with each of the remaining berries so that you four different berry fillings.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Roll out one of the pie crusts into a square large enough to yield 9 (3×4-inch) rectangles. Repeat with remaining roll of pie crust. Place 9 dough rectangles on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Place 1 1/2 tablespoons of filling on each rectangle. Top each rectangle with remaining dough rectangles. Crimp sides with a fork, making sure to seal the dough well. Poke a few holes in the top of each pop tart to allow steam to escape. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Makes 9 poptarts. (Note: use any leftover fruit filling as jam on toast.)
