Easy Strawberry Strudels

These easy strawberry strudels have perfect flaky sugary crispy tops with fruity berry fillings. Great as a Summer snack and ready in just half an hour!

I woke up yesterday morning, CRAVING these easy strawberry strudels that my Aunt makes all the time.

She actually fills them with strawberry and chocolate chips but surprisingly, I was out of chocolate chips.

So, I settled on making SIMPLE and CLASSIC mini strawberry strudels.

I actually had to make TOW batches of these easy strawberry strudels coz hubby finished off the first batch and left me with only one strudel to photograph….LOL!

Can you blame him though?

Just look at that flaky golden brown top and that VIBRANT fruity filling!

I highly recommend using high quality strawberry preserves in this recipe and definitely AVOID homemade jams.

Even though I have an amazingly easy homemade strawberry jam recipe, it doesn’t seem to work too well in these strawberry strudels.

The jam oozes out when the strudels are baking and leads to a sticky ugly mess :S

I think preserves are THICKER than jams and maybe that’s why they work better in strudels and other pastries.

easy strawberry strudels recipe 5To make these easy strawberry strudels, you will need the following ingredients:

1 package puff pastry sheets
1 cup strawberry preserve
1 egg + 1 tbsp water (egg wash)
1/2 cup sanding sugar (optional but highly recommended)

Notes:
– Instead of mini strudels, you can also make one big strawberry strudel. Just follow the same steps but don’t cut the puff pastry into smaller strips.
– You can fill these strudels with any flavor of preserves you like as well as chocolate chips, peanut butter and even Nutella.

And here are the steps:

Step 1:
Beat the egg and water in a small bowl to make the egg wash.
Keep this aside for now.

Step 2:
Unroll your pastry sheets and cut them into small rectangle strips.

Step 3:
Place 1 tbsp of strawberry preserve in the center of the pastry strip.

Step 4:
Fold one side of the strip on top of the preserve.
Brush a little egg wash on top on the strip and then fold the other side of the strip.
Press gently so that both the ends stick together.
Then, flip this strudel onto a cookie tray lined with parchment paper.

Step 5:
Use a knife to make two cuts on top of the strudels so that steam can easily escape.

Step 6:
Brush some egg wash on top of the strudels and sprinkle sanding sugar.

Step 7:
Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until the strudels are puffy and their tops and edges are golden brown.

And you are done making easy strawberry strudels.

    Hi cakewiz!!I decided to make these tonight after I saw your post on pintrest. My husband and I were craving something sweet and I decided this was perfect but I am wondering where can I buy sanding sugar? I tried Walmart and several other places but didn’t find it

      Hi Mary! I order sanding sugar from Amazon. Some WalMarts carry it though. You can make these strudels without it too. They will still taste good but won’t have that sugary crunch. Let me know how it goes…

    Is the oven in Celsius or Fahrenheit?

    Hi! I’ve never tried using puff pastry before, I thought it was too complicated for my novice skills. But I just have to try these! My question is about the initial cutting of the pastry. How many horizontal strips and how many vertical? Or if it’s easier to explain, the size of the rectangles?

      Even novice bakers can make these. They are so easy! The size of the rectangles for these strudels was 3 inches wide and about 5 inches long. however, you can make them bigger, if you like. The key is to use thick preserves so that it doesn’t completely ooze out during baking. Let me know how it goes 🙂
