Homemade Strawberries and Cream Cheese Toaster Strudels

These Homemade Strawberries and Cream Cheese Toaster Strudels are so simple to make and are filled with fresh fruit and cream!

I hope you don’t mind another strawberry recipe.

I just can’t help it. Those berries are so red, and juicy, and cheap.

They call to me.

I don’t know about you, but my mom rarely bought us toaster strudels when I was a kid. Probably had something to do with the fact that we would eat the entire box, while watching Charles in Charge, in one sitting.
I thought it would be fun to try and make my own, and it turned out to be really simple. It wasn’t exactly cheaper than buying the boxed replica, but it was homemade, with love, and strawberries… so yeah…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ok, I take it back, it wasn’t entirely homemade, more like semi-homemade. I used a box of frozen puff pastry dough.

But c’mon… life is short, and Saturday morning when the kids are hovering around begging for breakfast, I need to be quick on my feet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Good thing these came together fast. Pretty sure they were plotting a mutiny.

Place the frozen dough out to thaw on the counter while you chop up some strawberries into little pieces, and then sprinkle them with sugar.

Once the dough is thawed, unfold it and cut right down the creases to make a total of 6 strips of dough.
Top with a little cream cheese and yummy glazed strawberries, and fold over.
Use a fork to pinch the sides of the pastry together.
Cut little vent slices on the tops of the pastry, and coat with and egg wash to give it a nice golden brown color.

While it’s baking whip up a quick cream cheese glaze to drizzle on top.

And….wa-la, voila, ta-da, bada-bing, {wait, what?}

A homemade Strawberries and Cream Cheese Toaster Strudel… that you didn’t even put in the toaster…

But fyi– I did have one left over {cause my kids totally down these in one sitting} and I put it in a zip close bag in the fridge and toasted in the next morning…delish!

Now if I could only figure out how to make my own Fruity Pebbles…

Homemade Strawberry and Cream Cheese Toaster Strudels

These Homemade Strawberries and Cream Cheese Toaster Strudels are so simple to make and are filled with fresh fruit and cream!

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 6 pastries 1x
Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 box frozen puff pastry dough (in sheet form)
  • 2 cups chopped strawberries
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 4 oz cream cheese; softened; divided
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp milk or heavy cream

Instructions

  1. Remove puff pastry sheets from package and lay on counter to thaw. In the meanwhile chop strawberries into small pieces and place in a bowl. Toss with granulated sugar and let sit for 30 minutes.
  2. Pre heat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly flour your work surface and unfold pastry sheets and cut along the creases to create 6 long strips of dough. On one half of the dough gently spread 1 tbsp of cream cheese in the center(you should only use about 3oz of the cream cheese and leave the remaining 1oz for the glaze), leaving about an inch of dough on each side. Top with 1-2 tbsp of chopped strawberries. Fold the dough over, and pinch closed with a fork to create an enclosed pocket. Repeat for all 6 pastries.
  3. Place on a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet. Beat the egg with 1 tbsp of water in a small bowl. Brush the tops of the pastries with the egg wash. Using a sharp knife cut 3 slices on the top of the pastry, being careful not to slice through the bottom.
  4. Bake for 15-16 minutes. Should be puffed up and a golden brown.
  5. To make the glaze, in a small bowl combine the remaining 1oz of cream cheese with 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 tsp of milk or heavy cream and beat with a fork or whisk until smooth. Spoon into a zip close bag and snip a corner off to pipe onto a warm ‘toaster’ strudel.
