Homemade Jam Filled Toaster Strudels: fluffy pastry filled with homemade jam and topped with icing for sweetness. | olgainthekitchen.com

These Homemade Jam Filled Toaster Strudels are what we talk about everyday…just kidding, well maybe once a week? These are so fluffy, so delicious and so addicting. One of my past pastry addictions were the Pillsbury Strudels, but it’s no wonder why everyone says that homemade is ALWAYS better – these are indeed…way better. In the past, even before I was married, we would always purchase Pillsbury brand and I could eat the whole pack at once (so so so many calories), but it was so addicting just as much as those Kellogg’s Poptarts; 2 things I couldn’t live without for over decade 😀 .This homemade version doesn’t taste exactly like Pillsbury, but it’s HOMEMADE…it’s always better and fresh.

This recipe calls for puff pastry sheets, which some people like to make from scratch. However, there was a time I wanted to try making my own puff pastry dough, but then I realized that by the time I finish, all the effort and time I put into it, it would be a lot cheaper to just buy from the store and save myself the headache. Maybe someday I’ll try it, but for now…let’s be friends with Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry 🙂 .

Toaster Strudel Ingredients:

  • 1 package (2 sheets/1 lb) Pepperidge Farm Puff Pastry, thawed
  • 1/2 cup thick jam (I used homemade)
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water

Icing Ingredients:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons half & half
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract

How to Make Toaster Strudels:

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup jam and 2 tsps corn starch; set aside. In separate small bowl, whisk together 1 egg and 1 tbsp water; set aside.

2. Place and unfold 1 sheet of puff pastry onto a lightly floured surface and cut into 6 equal rectangles. Spoon about 2 tsps jam over the top 3 rectangles, leaving about 1/2″ rim around all edges uncoated. Brush uncoated edges with egg mixture, around the jam section. Layer bottom puff pastry rectangles over jammed puff pastry rectangles and lightly press edges to seal. Transfer onto baking sheet. Repeat the same procedure for the second puff pastry sheet. Brush tops of strudels with the egg wash. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden-brown.

How to Make Icing:

3. Combine 1 cup sifted powdered sugar with 1/8 tsp vanilla extract and 1/8 tsp almond extract; whisk together. Add in 1 1/2 tbsp half & half and whisk until fully mixed. Icing will be alike pudding.

4. Transfer icing into a plastic ziploc bag, cut a tiny tip from one of the corners. Drizzle over baked strudels while still hot; this will let the icing to dry quickly. Serve fresh, and enjoy with cup of coffee or tea!!!
