A Sweet Treat to Start Your Week


Day 25.
One day, not too long ago, my sister posted on her Facebook that she was craving Strawberry Toaster Strudel. That day, I told her I'd try making some strawberry strudel that tasted similar to the frozen convenient sort. Today, I did. Only it tastes better. And it wasn't terribly difficult, either. To my sister: You should come visit me and I'll make it for you!
Strawberry Strudel
serves 8
Ingredients:
  • 12 sheets filo dough, thawed
  • 3 Tbsp melted butter
  • 3 cups sliced strawberries (It's wintertime. I used frozen.)
  • 3 Tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

How it's Done:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Cover a large cookie sheet with aluminum foil and spray liberally with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine strawberries, corn starch, and sugar. Set aside.
  3. Gently spread a small amount of melted butter on one sheet of filo dough. Cover with a second sheet and butter again. Cover with a third sheet and butter once more.
  4. Position 1/4 of the strawberry mixture near a short end of the dough. Tuck the sides in, then gently roll up the dough, enclosing the filling as you go.
  5. Gently transfer to your prepared cookie sheet.
  6. Continue this process, using three sheets of filo for each bundle, until they're all rolled.
  7. Spread a little melted butter on top of each roll and sprinkle with granulated sugar.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes, or until golden brown and slightly crisp.
  9. If desired, make a drizzle icing from 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla, and 1-2 Tbsp milk for topping.

Thanks for visiting my blog today! My kids love Toaster Strudel, but I don't exactly feel good about giving it to them. This looks amazing. Do you think they would freeze well to be reheated in a toaster oven?

Thanks,

Andrea and Lisa, Hi! Thanks for stopping in!

I'm not sure, but I think they might freeze well. If you want to freeze them, I would turn them over 1/2 way through cooking time to make sure the bottom gets just as crisp as the top. That way, it wouldn't get soggy upon reheating.
