Pumpkin Pear Strudel

Pumpkin Pear StrudelWrap pears, pumpkin and chopped nuts—sweetened with brown sugar and spices—in puff pastry sheets and pop them into the oven for a few minutes. Out will come a light and flaky pastry bursting with the sweetness and flavors of autumn.

Recipe Ingredients:

2 cups peeled, cored and diced pears, (about 2 small)
1 cup LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
2 sheets frozen puff pastry (from 17.25-ounce package), thawed per pkg directions - divided use
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons cinnamon sugar

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Combine pears, pumpkin, sugar, nuts, cinnamon, cloves and ginger in medium bowl. Spoon one half of filling in center third of one pastry sheet.
  3. Make downward slanting strips in outer sections of pastry (3/4-inch apart) starting about 1-inch away from top of pastry and side of filling, cutting to outside edges. Starting at top, alternately fold left and right side pastry strips over filling forming a braid. Seal at top and bottom of strudel. Place on ungreased rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with remaining filling and pastry sheet. Brush strudel with egg; sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and puffy. Serve warm.

Makes 10 servings.
