Easy Strawberry Strudel {With Puff Pastry}


Quick and easy strawberry strudel with puff pastry, homemade with 3 simple ingredients. Perfect flaky sugary crispy tops with jam filling.

I woke up yesterday morning, CRAVING these easy treats 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 a SIMPLE and CLASSIC version.

I actually had to make TOW batches of these because 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!

You just need THREE ingredients to make these easy strawberry strudels => Store bought puff pastry sheets, strawberry preserves and egg wash!

Actually, you can fill these with ANY favor of preserves you like… apricot, blueberries, raspberries…Mmmmmm!

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 DOES NOT seem to work too well in these strawberry strudels. I think it’s not super thick. It oozes out when the strudels are baking and leads to a sticky ugly mess.

I have noticed that typically preserves are THICKER than jams and tend to work better but there are some really high quality thick jams in the market too that work equally well.

Store in a covered container at room temperature for up to 2 days. They don’t need to be refrigerated but can be, if you like. They taste the best when served freshly baked out of the oven. Over time, they do become slightly sticky and soggy.

Easy Strawberry Strudels

Prep Time: 10 mins

Quick and easy strawberry strudel with puff pastry, homemade with 3 simple ingredients. Perfect flaky sugary crispy tops with jam filling.
Yield: 20 Strudels


  • 1 package Puff pastry sheets, 2 Sheets, 17.3 oz package
  • 1 cup Strawberry preserve, Should be thick, Can use thick jam too
  • 1 Egg , + 1 tbsp water (egg wash)
  • ½ cup Sanding sugar, Optional but highly recommended


  • Beat the egg and water in a small bowl to make the egg wash. Keep this aside for now.
  • Unroll your pastry sheets and cut them into small rectangle strips. Mine were about 2-3 inches wide and 5-6 inches long. These are approximate since I didn't use a ruler to measure them. 
  • Place 1 tbsp of thick strawberry preserve in the center of the pastry strip.
  • Fold one side of the strip on top of the filling and then fold the other side of the strip. Press gently so that both ends stick together. Then, flip this strudel onto a cookie tray, lined with parchment paper. 
  • Gently, use a sharp knife to make 3-4 cuts on top of each strudel so that steam can easily escape while baking. 
  • In a small bowl, beat the egg and water to make the egg wash. 
  • Brush the top of each strudel with egg wash and sprinkle some sanding sugar. 
  • Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes or until the strudels are puffy and golden brown. Enjoy!


  • 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.
