How to make it

  • Filling:
  • In a medium saucepan, mix together granulated sugar, brown sugar, and cornstarch.
  • Stir in cherries, water, lemon zest and vanilla. Cook over medium heat until bubbling and thickened.
  • Reduce heat to low and add allspice and cinnamon. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and cool completely.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease baking sheet.
  • Pastry:
  • Unfold sheets of phyllo so they lie flat.
  • Stack 4 sheets on plastic wrap. Brush top sheet with 1 Tbsp melted butter. Keep remaining sheets covered with plastic wrap and damp cloth to prevent them from drying out.
  • Spread half of filling along a short side to top pastry sheet.
  • Starting with short side and using plastic wrap as a guide, roll up pastry, jelly roll style. Fold ends under.
  • Place strudel, seam side down, on prepared baking sheet.
  • Brush with 1/2 tsp melted butter.
  • Repeat with remaining phyllo, melted butter, and filling to make second strudel.
  • Bake until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Transfer baking sheet to a wire rack to cool for 15 minutes.
  • Transfer strudels to a cutting board to cool completely.
  • Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
