Ingredients

For Peaches

  • 3 large peaches cut into 1 inch pieces
  • ¼ cup sugar

For Cream Cheese Mixture

  • 8 ounces cream cheese softened at room temperature
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg yolk

For Strudels

  • 2 sheets puff pastry
  • 1 large egg for egg wash
  • 1 tablespoon icing sugar optional
  • 2 tablespoons almonds sliced and toasted

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  • Prepare the peach filling first by adding the peaches and ¼ cup of sugar to a smaller pot and cook over medium heat for about 3 to 5 minutes just until all the sugar dissolves and the peaches soften a bit. Remove from heat and strain if there is too much liquid.

  • Using one puff pastry at a time, place it over a lightly floured surface and roll it out into a 14x12 inch rectangle. Cut slits 1 inch apart from the 2 sides of the puff pastry about ⅓ way in, as seen in the pictures. Spoon about half the cream cheese mixture down the center of the pastry and smooth it out.

  • Next add half the peaches over the cream cheese mixture. Starting at one end, fold the pastry strips over the peach mixture, alternating sides until you completely cover the peach mixture. Repeat with remaining puff pastry and ingredients.

Notes

  1. This recipe will yield 2 peach strudels.
  2. There is no need to peel the peaches, but feel free to do so if so desired. Canned peaches can also work for this recipe.
  3. If you'd like to freeze one of the strudels to save for later, do so before baking, wrapped tightly in plastic wrap then placed in a freezer bag. Freeze for up to 3 months.
  4. To bake, it's best to bake it straight from the freezer, this will prevent the strudel from getting soggy. Bake at 400°F degrees rather than the 375°F as stated in the recipe.
