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.
Prickly Pear Toaster Strudel
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1.5 C powdered sugar
- 3 T milk
- 4 T salted butter extremely melted
- 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!
