Homemade Apple Toaster Strudels


  • 1 sheet puff pastry, thawed
  • 2 cups homemade apple pie filling or 1 can apple pie filling
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  2. Cut the puff pastry sheet into six equal-size rectangles. Score the edge of the pastry dough with a knife, leaving a 1/4-inch rim around the outside. Using a fork, prick holes in the inside of the scored line.
  3. Bake in the oven for 8 minutes. Remove. Using the back of a spoon, press down the center of the pastry. Where you scored it earlier will allow it to sink down while the edges remain risen, creating a pocket.
  4. Divide the apple pie filling evenly between the puff pastry rectangles. Bake for another 8 to 10 minutes, until golden brown and toasty around the edges. Cool on a wire rack.
  5. Meanwhile, beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla until creamy. Add more milk if it’s needed so that it drizzles easily.
  6. After the pastries have cooled for 5 minutes, drizzle with the cream cheese glaze.
