Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Wrap pears, pumpkin and chopped nuts sweetened with brown sugar and spices in light and flaky pastry for a simple but elegant dessert.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees F.
  • COMBINE pears, pumpkin, sugar, nuts, cinnamon, cloves and ginger in medium bowl. Spoon one half of filling in center third of one pastry sheet.
  • MAKE downward slanting strips in outer sections of pastry (3/4-inch apart) starting about 1 inch away from top of pastry and side of filling, cutting to outside edges. Starting at top, alternately fold left and right side pastry strips over filling forming a braid. Seal at top and bottom of strudel. Place on ungreased rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with remaining filling and pastry sheet. Brush strudel with egg; sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  • BAKE for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and puffy. Serve warm.
