Pastry isn’t as challenging as you might think! My Easy Apple Cream Cheese Strudel uses only 6 ingredients and 10 minutes to prepare for a fancy-pants breakfast or dessert!
Puff pastry is one of those ingredients that is so simple to make at home, but SO much easier to buy at the store. I keep a few sheets in the freezer at all times knowing that I can always pull out a sheet and make an impressive dish for any time of day, like my Citrus Sausage Tartlets, Beef Wellington or Blackberry Brie Pinwheels!
Easy Apple Cream Cheese Strudel was hot, hot, hot in my house and was G-O-N-E. Apple pie filling is already blended with spices, but feel free to liven even further with cinnamon and/or nutmeg, cream cheese adds sophistication to buttery layers of puff pastry. Tubinado sugar and sliced almonds add interest to the texture and flavor profile.
