How to Make This Strawberry and Cream Cheese Strudel

Thawing the Puff Pastry

I always buy pre-made puff pastry. You’ll find puff pastry in the frozen section of the grocery store. I like to get the pre-rolled kind (it’s just easier). Before making this danish read the thawing instructions on the puff pastry. I like to let mine thaw in the fridge over night or you can usually thaw it on the counter for 2 hours. They usually come in a two sheet pack and you will only need one sheet for this recipe.

Strawberry Sauce

Wash, haul, and chop two cups worth of strawberries. In a small pot add the strawberries, water, white sugar, and cornstarch. Stir until cornstarch is dissolved.

Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Once simmering cook for an additional 5 minutes. Be sure to stir constantly so the sauce does not burn. Once cooked, remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature before adding it to the strudel.

Assembling the Strudel

Preheat your oven to 400 F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla together until light and fluffy. Set aside.

Unfold the thawed puff pastry and lay it on the lined baking tray. Fold it in thirds so you have a clean indication of where the middle section is.

Add the cream cheese mixture into the centre section of the puff pastry. Using a spatula evenly spread the mixture to cover the entire centre area. Leave a small amount of space at the bottom and top edges so you have room to fold.

Add the strawberry sauce on top of the cream cheese.

Cut 1/2 inch diagonal strips up each side of the dough. Remove the two strips at the top and two at the bottom to create a fold.

Fold the top and bottom edge of the dough in towards the pastry. Fold slats of dough up over filling alternating sides to get a braided pattern.

Egg Wash

Make the egg wash by beating the egg and cold water together in a small bowl. Use a basting brush to apply the egg wash all over the folded danish.

Sprinkle coarse sugar on top of the pastry.

Baking

Bake for 30 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Remove from the oven and let sit on the pan until it cools slightly before enjoying.

This recipe is best enjoyed right after baking.
