  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar + 2 tablespoons
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water

How To Make This Blackberry Strudel Recipe

Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

In a small bowl, using a fork combine the egg and water and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, add the blackberries. Add the sugar, flour, and vanilla and mix gently.

On a floured work surface, unfold your puff pastry. Using a floured rolling pin, roll out puff pastry into a rectangle, about 12”x14”.

Move the pastry onto the prepared baking sheet.

In a small microwaveable dish, heat blackberry preserves for about 10 seconds. Spoon and spread preserves the long way down the middle of the pastry.

Spoon the blackberry mixture over the preserves, keeping it in the center the long way.

Along each long side, cut 3-inch long slits every inch.

Starting at the top, begin folding the slits in, overlapping slightly downward, alternating sides, over the blackberry filling.

Brush egg wash over the top. Then sprinkle the remaining sugar on top.

Bake for 21-23 minutes, or until golden brown.

Allow pastry to cool for 10-15 minutes on the baking sheet before serving. Then enjoy!
