Cranberry Strudel With Mascarpone CheeseFrom annieamie 5 years ago
- For one strudel shopping list
- 1 can of prepared whole cranberry sauce shopping list
- 8 ounces of mascarpone cheese at room temperature OR see the recipe below on how to make your own mascarpone cheese, using 8 ounces shopping list
- 1 square of thawed puff pastry dough like Pepperidge Farms shopping list
- 2 T granulated sugar shopping list
- extra sugar for the top of the dough shopping list
- 1 egg, separate the yolk from the whites and save the whites to use over the top of the dough. shopping list
- Optional additions: 1 chopped apple or pears, golden raisins, or chocolate chips shopping list
How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Place the pastry dough on a large pan covered with Release foil or parchment paper for best results.
- Spread the mascarpone cheese down the middle of the pastry dough.
- Sprinkle with 2 TB of sugar.
- Spread the can of cranberries over the top of the cheese.
- Fold the sides of the pastry dough over the berries and cheese, one at a time.
- Using a regular fork, press the tines of the fork directly into the dough at the ends to seal.
- Turn the dough over so that the sealed seam going down the middle of the pastry is face down on the pan!
- Quickly whip your egg white with the fork and using a pastry brush, paint the egg white over the top and sides of the pastry.
- Cut four or five small slits into the top of the pastry to allow steam to escape while baking.
- Sprinkle the top of the strudel with about 1 TB of granulated sugar.
- Place in oven and bake for 20-30 minutes OR until golden brown in color.
- Remove from oven and cool completely. The cooler the strudel, the easier it will be to cut.
- * I cut the strudel in thin diagonal "sticks" about 2 inches wide for either a brunch setting or as a dessert item on a dessert table.
- I'd like to add that I just found "Artisan Puff Pastry" at Trader Joes! Its fabulous! Its a bit larger in size than the typical frozen pastry you can find at your local market.
- You can substitute cream cheese but know that cream cheese is actually salty in flavor. If you use cream cheese, add a little sugar to taste to improve the flavor. The canned cranberries have more than enough sugar in them if you use a name brand. Off brands may not have as much or even too much so taste your canned berries before adding any sugar.
- Here's a recipe I found created by Sue Freeman for Homemade Mascarpone Cheese. Perhaps you'd like to try it! Its good.
