I have officially jumped on the pumpkin bandwagon and I am so excited about it! This faux Toaster Strudel® recipe is absolutely amazing, and the perfect way to start any day!
It all started with a homemade puff pastry. I have made it three times in the last couple days and love it more and more each time.
The great thing about this puff pastry is that it takes just minutes to pull together! I was shocked at just how easy and fool proof it is. Every single time I have made it, the dough has been perfect.
I think that I ended up liking the ‘rustic’ look best. Sure, you can get out your ruler and make a perfect rectangle and measure each perfect little pocket of pumpkin loveliness OR you can eyeball it and enjoy it just the same.
Puff Pastry recipe barely adapted from Food Network.
For the delectable frosting drizzle: Place cream cheese in a pastry bag and snip off a very small portion. Apply pressure to bag and drizzle over each pastry while it is still warm.
This recipe makes roughly 10 pumpkin pastries. I had about 1/2 cup of the pumpkin mixture left over, and that will keep in the fridge for about 2 weeks.
Just look at those flakey layers of buttery deliciousness! My third attempt at these is when I decided to add cinnamon to the dough. I have to tell you… it is incredible.
The slight cinnamon flavor in the buttery pastry paired with the barely sweetened pumpkin filling seriously creates something magical. If you are a pumpkin fan, a breakfast pastry fan, a butter fan, a fan of food in general, you will want to try these!
