Prickly Pear Toaster Strudel

With the end of prickly pear season rapidly approaching, it is time to get out there, grab some tunas, and make this delicious Prickly Pear Toaster Strudel recipe.

I do not know how, but I had never had a toaster strudel until I made these heavenly rectangles. I bought Strawberry Pillsbury Toaster Strudels to compare my results to. I was blown away at the fact I had never had one, and further blown away by how much better mine was.

This is a great way to use any jelly you may have. It is simple and easy to make and extremely delicious (if I do say so myself).

These pastries did not last a day in my house. I hope you enjoy them as much as us.

Toaster Strudel


  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1.5 C powdered sugar
  • 3 T milk
  • 4 T salted butter extremely melted


Toaster Strudel

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Place both sheets of puff pastry on wax paper, parchment paper, or a lightly floured surface.
  • Cut into 12 equal rectangles. I used a pizza cutter for a quick and easy slice.
  • In the center of 6 of the rectangles, spoon 2-3 T of prickly pear jelly evenly leaving room to seal the edges (1/4-1/2 inch of room).
  • Lightly brush the edges surrounding the jam with beaten egg.
  • If you wish, cut a pattern in the remaining "top" pastry slice. It is not needed, but I liked adding lines.
  • Layer the top piece over the jam.
  • Using a fork, crimp the edges together to ensure the jelly is sealed in.
  • Brush tops with remaining egg wash.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Let cool.


  • Combine all icing ingredients until smooth.
  • Drizzle over cooled pastry. Enjoy!
