Simple Summer Strudel

Simple Summer Strudel

Fresh peaches, cherries and blackberries are a delicious combination in this simple and quick strudel.  This recipe couldn't be any easier, it took maybe 15 minutes to prepare.  In true lazy summer form, I used prepared puff pastry.  I do love to do everything from scratch, but sometimes quick and easy is the way to go.  I always keep a package of frozen puff pastry handy for last minute treats.  My kids' only complaint of this yummy strudel was that they didn't get enough!  I will definately be making this again.  Who knew these flavours would work so well together?!

Simple Summer Strudel
1 pkg frozen puff pastry, thawed
1 peach
3/4 cup pitted cherries, quartered
3/4 cup blackberries, halved
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten

Chop peach, into pieces that are roughly the same size as the cherries and blackberries. Place peaches, cherries, and blackberries in a bowl, add sugar and stir until coated.

  Roll out pastry on lightly floured surface into a large rectangle.  Spoon fruit mixture evenly down one side.  Brush edges of pastry with beaten egg.

 Fold pastry lengthwise across fruit. Seal edges.  Place on parchment lined baking sheet.  Score the top in several places. 

Bake @ 400°F for 30-40 min until golden brown and nicely puffed up.  Allow to cool, slice and serve with fresh fruit.


  1. Looks good and easy. Just my style! Looking forward to making it. Thanks! Roxane

  2. Thanks Rox! It was easy, your kids will love it :)

  3. Looks delicious! I love the idea of food flips! Does your family know what the other picks? Or are they all in the dark until the unveil?

  4. Thanks Ann! They do all know what the others have picked. I'm not quite that courageous :) Knowing my luck (and my family) I would end up with sausage, chocolate, and oranges or some other crazy combination.
