Strawberry Cream Cheese Strudel, a fast, easy and delicious Dessert, filled with Fresh Strawberries, Cream Cheese and Chocolate Chips.
If you know me at all you will know that I am an absolute lover of Puff Pastry. In Italy Pastry Dough is very popular and loved by all. No need to look in the frozen section of your supermarket. Nope, dough is only sold fresh.
From Pastry Dough, to Pie Dough to even Pizza Dough, oh yes and don’t forget Focaccia Dough.
I love Puff Pastry because you can always make the most amazing, quick and easy desserts. I have to say of all the desserts I make these are the ones that get eaten the quickest.
And by quick I mean 15 minutes and they are gone. This Strawberry Cream Cheese Strudel was no exception. It’s a wonder I was even able to make a video and take photos.
I love the combination of cream cheese and strawberries and why not add some chocolate for good measure?
My daughter kept following me around and asking, “are you done yet”? She is like a magnet to anything made with strawberries.
So when her father came home and took a look at what was left, he said “so it was good I see”. And yes it was, you can serve it plain or with a simple glaze. Enjoy!
