Strawberry Struedel

by aimee @ shugarysweets on April 26, 2012

My kids love Pillsbury toaster strudels. I love that I can make myself one for breakfast too. I mean seriously, this was genius, it’s like a strawberry pie for breakfast!

Using Puff Pastry, and about 5 minutes prep plus 15 minutes baking, you can make these at home! Pie for breakfast, seriously.

I used strawberry pie filling, but think of the possibilities here people. Apple pie filling? Apple PIE FOR BREAKFAST! Thank you pillsbury for changing our mindset on what’s acceptable.

Okay, if you’re “one of those people” who eat something like oatmeal, and flax seed and berries for breakfast, then…

why are you here?

Kidding. You’re here cause you are going to make this for dessert! That’s the beauty of these struedels. Breakfast or dessert, they are delicious and easy!

Strawberry Struedel

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 13 minutes

Yield: 12


  • 1 pkg Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry (2 sheets)
  • 1 can (21oz) strawberry pie filling
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp milk


  1. Thaw puff pastry according to package directions. Unfold and cut each sheet of pastry along seams (making 3 strips on each). Cut each strip in half, for a total of 6 rectangles on each sheet (12 in all). Poke many times with a fork and lay on parchment lined baking sheet.
  2. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10-12 minutes. Spoon strawberry filling into center of pastry, careful to not go over edges. Return to oven for 3-4 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, beat cream cheese with powdered sugar and milk for about 3 minutes until creamy. Add more milk to get to desired consistency.
  4. Remove pastries from oven and drizzle with cream cheese frosting. Serve warm!
  5. **you can also add some of the cream cheese filling to the pastry. Spoon a dollop on the pastry, add the strawberry pie filling, return to oven for 3-4 minutes. Then drizzle with more frosting. This is MY favorite! You may need to double the filling/frosting if you do it this way though!

I LOVE Toaster Streudels! They’re so yummy, and I only had them when I spent the night at one friend’s house as a kid since my mom didn’t buy them for us. But I have fond memories of them and these look even better!

Wow, this looks better than a toaster strudel! You can put as much filling and frosting as you want. ;-) Never even thought of making my own, great idea!

LOL! You made me snicker about those who eat flax seed for breakfast. =D Alas, I don’t have time for something like this on the weekdays… but the WEEKENDS! Ugh, I’m already imagining a nutella+marshmallow variation. Great Job thanks for sharing! And if you have the time, I’d love for you to share on Sweet Sharing Monday!

This brings back memories! As a kid, I would always beg my mom to get me toaster streudels. She was so sweet and would give in. I’m totally gonna make these. I bet they’re waaay better than the frozen kind from the store :)


deanna December 27, 2012 at 11:37 am

Um…how would you put the filling INSIDE the pastry? Just curious. Thanks!


aimee @ shugarysweets December 27, 2012 at 12:37 pm

You can cut two pieces place the filling inside and pinch the edges. Might work?!

Hi, there. This looks awesome, but Pinterest won’t let me pin it with “broken” images. Could you please fix that? Thank you so very much.


Dianne April 7, 2014 at 5:29 pm

Just so you now – having made these for awhile now and LOVE them – if you cut your dough into squares, add the filling to the middle and fold over to triangle shape, bake then ice… have an Arby’s turnover fascimile. And who doesn’t love those things!!


aimee @ shugarysweets April 8, 2014 at 7:20 am

Great tip Dianne!! Glad you enjoyed the recipe :)
