Step by Step Instructions

Thaw the puff pastry sheet as per packages directions. Some say thaw on the counter for 1 hour or you can leave it to thaw in the fridge over night.

Cream Cheese Filling

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

Assembling the Strudel

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

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.

puff pasty with cream cheese filling

Add the sliced peaches on top of the cream cheese.

There are many different sizes of puff pastry out there. If you find that it’s looking too full and not going to close up leave out a few tablespoons of the filling.

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.

cutting the strudel

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.

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 adding the glaze.

Glaze

In a bowl mix the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until combined and smooth.

Drizzle the glaze over the strudel and enjoy warm.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then scrape with a knife to level off the access. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour cause the flour to compress and getting more than the recipe calls for.

STORING THE COOKIES

Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. The cookies stay good for up to four days if stored properly.

What does S’mores mean?

S’mores is actually short for some more and is the name given to this dessert.

What can I use instead of graham crackers?

If you can’t find graham crackers the next best thing would be digestive biscuits/ cookies.

HOW TO GET PERFECTLY ROUND COOKIES

As soon as the baked cookies are pulled from the oven place a round cookie cutter (a little bit large than the cookies) around the cookies and gently swirl it around. This will give your cookie a round shape. If you don’t have a cookie cutter you can use a glass or a jar lid.

CAN I MAKE THE COOKIES SMALLER?

No you can not. These cookies need to be larger to make sure the marshmallow stays inside the cookies.

Oreos and chocolate chips. Oreo and red velvet are a match made in heaven! If you’ve never tried it you are missing out.

Amazing taste. They have the perfect red velvet flavour which goes perfectly with the white chocolate chips.

No vinegar. Red velvet cookies traditionally use vinegar but I know some people find the taste overwhelming. Instead this recipe uses buttermilk so you still get that red velvet tang but it’s not overwhelming.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT KIND OF OREOS SHOULD I USE?

I use chocolate oreos but you can use any oreo flavour you enjoy. You want to make sure that they are regular stuffed oreos, not double/mega stuffed.

CAN I SUBSTITUTE THE BUTTERMILK?

If you have to you can substitute the buttermilk for regular milk. However, the buttermilk gives these cookies that slightly tangy flavour that is expected with red velvet cookies.

HOW DO YOU GET CHEWY COOKIES?

For chewy cookies, the trick is not over bake them. Cookies may still seem soft in the middle but will harden up after cooling. Once edges/ bottom are a golden brown the cookies are done. Let the cookies fully cool on the baking trays.

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND LEVELLED FLOUR MEAN?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then level off the access by scraping with a knife. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour causes the flour to compress and you will get more flour than the recipe calls for.
