cherry Strudel
Fresh Cherry Strudel
Prep 30 min // Cook 20 min // Cool 30 min //Serves 12

8 oz light cream cheese,
at room temperature
3 Tbsp confectioners’ sugar
1 large egg
2 tsp lemon zest
¼ tsp freshly grated nutmeg
Pinch kosher salt
2 c whole cherries, pitted
7 sheets phyllo dough
(13 x 18-inch; 7 oz total)
4 tsp granulated sugar

1 Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2 Using an electric mixer, beat together cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, egg, lemon zest, nutmeg, and salt in a large bowl.

3 Lay 1 sheet phyllo on the prepared baking sheet; lightly coat with nonstick spray and sprinkle with ½ tsp granulated sugar. Continue layering with remaining 6 sheets of phyllo (no spray or sugar is added on the last sheet).

4 Spread cheese mixture evenly across phyllo stack, leaving a 2-inch border; scatter cherries evenly across top. Using parchment paper to assist, roll phyllo layers over cheese and cherries jelly roll–style; gently flip strudel over so seam is on bottom. Lightly spray top of strudel with nonstick spray; sprinkle with remaining 1 tsp sugar.

5 Bake until phyllo is golden, 15–20 minutes; remove from oven and let cool slightly before slicing into 12 pieces.
