I wish I could say that we’re done moving, but not quite yet. This has been stressing me out like nothing else. I don’t like being in this state of limbo where everything is in boxes and you only sort of know where everything is. I know this will all clear up as soon as we’re in our new apartment, but until then I’ll just have to manage.
Luckily for me, I have this strudel to help me get through these tough times! The crust on this strudel is super flakey and full of buttery goodness. All the sweetness is in the jam, which really balances the richness of the dough. They do come out of the oven a little messy since some of the jam escapes while it bakes. I transferred them to a new piece of aluminum foil shortly after they came out of the oven to prevent them from sticking.
I used a mango peach jam for two of these and a mixed berry jam for the remaining two. You can pick your favorite flavor for this strudel. Any jam will work, but I do think the tart ones work just a bit better for the overall flavor. I also dusted these with powdered sugar, but that’s entirely optional (though highly recommended).
Prep Time: 45 mins
Cook Time: 45 to 55 mins
Total Time: 1 hr 30 mins
Makes: about 24 servings
2 sticks of butter 1 cup of greek yogurt 2 cups of white whole wheat flour 8 tablespoons of jam, I used a peach mango and a mixed berry blend
1) In a medium sized mixing bowl add the butter, yogurt, and flour. Using either a pastry or a fork, blend all the ingredients. 2) Once blended, form the dough into a ball and cover with wax paper and chill overnight. 3) The next day, split the dough into four balls. Keep one out and put the remaining back in the fridge until needed. 4) Preheat the oven to 350° and prep a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. 5) On a floured surface, roll the dough into a thin rectangle. 6) Spread out two tablespoons of your desired jam on the rectangle. I found it easiest if I left about an inch of space around three edges. 7)Roll the dough and seal the edges. Place on the cookie sheet and grab another dough ball. 8) Once everything is finished, place the cookie sheet in the oven and bake for 45-55 minutes. 9) Take the strudel out of the oven, and wait for it to cool before slicing into pieces. Top with powdered sugar if desired.
