How to Make a Cream Cheese Peach Strudel

My husband walked in the door with a big box of ripe, juicy, peaches this week. Our home has smelled absolutely divine. I had to arm wrestle him for enough peaches to make this peach strudel.

However, after I pulled the cream cheese strudel out of the oven and he took a bite, he offered to share a few more. 😉 It’s a snap to whip up with purchased puff pastry and much easier to make than it looks.

Peach strudel ingredients

Initial Prep

Begin by preheating the oven to 400 degrees. Then, beat the egg and water together in a small bowl – I use a fork for quick cleanup and convenience. Whip the cream cheese with 1/4 cup brown sugar. To chopped peaches, add brown sugar, flour, nuts, and vanilla. Stir and set aside

Preparing the Strudel

Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface or parchment paper. Roll the pastry sheet into a 14×2″ rectangle. You can also cut it in half to make two smaller strudels if you’d like. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the pastry dough. Spread the peach mixture 1-inch from the edge of the dough.

Rolling the Strudel

Begin carefully rolling the dough over the filling and then pinch the ends together and tuck under.

Baking the Strudel

Carefully place on a parchment-lined baking sheet pan. Brush with egg wash and slash top with a sharp knife.  Sprinkle with coarse sparkling sugar. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until brown and bubbly. Let cool for 20 minutes before cutting and serving.

Final Thoughts

How delicious does that creamy peach strudel look? I can tell you that it will make your house smell absolutely amazing! When it’s ready to serve, make sure to add a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a nice dollop of whip cream if you want your taste buds to really go wild.

  • 1-1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/4 cup pecans, chopped (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 2 tablespoons of course sugar or granulated sugar

Instructions

  5. Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface or onto a piece of parchment paper. Roll the pastry sheet into a 14x12" rectangle. (Cut in half lengthwise to make two smaller, or leave as is for one large strudel.)
  6. Spread the cream cheese mixture onto pastry sheet, leaving 1 inch at edge of pastry. Spoon the peach mixture over the cream cheese.
  7. Carefully roll the dough over the filling and roll up, pinching the ends of the dough together and gently tucking underneath the pastry roll.

  9. Bake for 25 minutes or until the pasty is golden brown.
  10. Let the pastry cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack for 20 minutes.
  11. Serve with vanilla ice cream, or whipped cream, if desired.

Notes

You may use frozen instead of fresh peaches, if desired, 16 ounces frozen peach slices, thawed and well drained. This recipe makes 1 large strudel or 2 smaller ones.

    We are going to try this on Saturday. My daughter has been begging to make strudel. We never have, so fingers crossed it turns out like your. Thanks for posting! We did pin it also.
