Homemade Poptarts

My daughter LOVES poptarts (specifically strawberry), she got hooked when I was working and she would eat one in the morning because we left so early she could continue eating on the way to daycare.  It was like that only for a few weeks but she was hooked.  She is sensitive to red dye so store bought is out of the question. I have found a few recipes but they only make 6-8 poptarts.  I wa shoping to make enough for two weeks at a time (she eats 1-2 poptarts a morning but I'm pushing for a piece of fruit or yogurt instead of a second one). 

Any tips?  Can I freeze them after baking or just before?

From what i know, yes you can freeze them just like you can freeze the store bought ones.   I would freeze after baking so you can just pop them in toaster for the mornings.

How long do you freeze them for?  I'm wanting to make a huge batch so I'm not making them ever weekend.

I'm thinking this recipe maybe, but store bought preserves. http://www.completelydelicious.com/2011/03/homemade-strawberry-pop-tarts.html
