A healthier, homemade breakfast pastry made from scratch! This strawberry toaster strudel puffs up beautifully golden in the oven, made with real strawberry filling and drizzled with an easy cream cheese frosting.
Make the strawberry filling. Chop the strawberries, transfer to a saucepan. Add the sugar and, over medium heat, bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Cook for about 5-7 minutes, then add cornstarch and cook for about 2 minutes more to thicken, constantly stirring. Remove from heat and let it completely cool.
Prep your baking tools. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 400F.
Begin assembling the strudels. Thaw the puff pastry according to package directions. Cut each of the puff pastry sheets into 6 even rectangles to get 12 rectangles. Transfer 6 rectangles to a baking sheet and place about 1-1,5 tbsp of strawberry filling at the center of each of 6 rectangles, leaving about 0,5-inch rim around all edges uncoated. Whisk the egg with milk until smooth . Brush the uncoated rim with this mixture.
Finish assembling. Place remaining puff pastry rectangles over strawberry coated puff pastry and press the edges to seal. You also can use a fork to create beautiful edges. Brush the tops of each strudel with egg and milk mixture. Transfer the baking sheet for about 15 minutes into the fridge.
Bake the strudels for about 20 minutes until light golden brown. Remove from the oven and let the strudels cool for about 15 minutes.
Make the frosting. Beat together cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Transfer it to a piping bag. Drizzle the frosting on strudels. Best served warm.
To store extras: Allow to cool completely then transfer to an airtight container and store in the fridge with layers of parchment paper between each strudel. They will keep for up to 5 days.
To reheat: Warm in an oven or toaster oven preheated to 350F for about 4-5 minutes. Do not try to reheat these in a pop-up toaster oven as the frosting will melt.
