Homemade Toaster Strudels

Homemade Toaster Strudel
Since being pregnant, I have had a hankerin’ for some good ole Toaster Strudels. However, seeing as I am more health conscious now then I was in my teens, I opted to find a homemade version, without so many preservatives… even though I couldn’t quite avoid this darn trans fats. Alas… you can’t win ’em all!
I found the original recipe, which included cream cheese, over on I Wash You Dry. However, cream cheese + fruit and I don’t have a good history, and the original “Toaster Strudels” are sans cream cheese, so I opted not to use it. So, my version is below:

Homemade Toaster Strudels
Ingredients:

  • 1 box frozen puff pastry dough (in sheet form)
  • 2 cups chopped strawberries
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp milk

 
Instructions:

  1. Remove puff pastry sheets from package and lay on counter to thaw. In the meantime chop strawberries into small pieces and place in a bowl. Toss with granulated sugar and let sit until your dough is thawed.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly flour your work surface and unfold pastry sheets and cut along the creases to create 6 long strips of dough. I rolled mine a bit thinner than they came out of the package. On one half of the dough place 1-2 Tbsp of strawberries, make sure to leave about an inch of dough on all sides. Fold the dough over, and press closed with a fork to create an enclosed pocket. Repeat for all 6 pastries.
  3. Place on a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet. Beat the egg with 1 tbsp of water in a small bowl. Brush the tops of the pastries with the egg wash. Using a sharp knife cut 3 slices on the top of the pastry, being careful not to slice through the bottom.
  4. Bake for 15-16 minutes. Should be puffed up and a golden brown.
  5. To make the glaze, in a small bowl combine 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp of milk and beat with a fork or whisk until smooth. Spoon into a zip close bag and snip a corner off to pipe onto a warm pastry.
