Rhubarb Toaster Strudel

Homemade pop tartsI am, apparently, still on a puff pastry kick. But instead of a quick dinner idea today I have an easy and delicious breakfast treat for you. The morning I made these I was a little frustrated because my puff pastry was sticking together. I had bought a brand that comes folded (and frozen) and somehow during the thawing process that morning the dough had become very stick to the point that I just couldn't unfold it. Bummer. The good thing about puff pastry though is that it is like any super buttery dough (like croissants) is that layers are a good thing! So if you find your dough stuck together, like I did, simply dust with flour and flatten it out with a rolling pin to the size you need.

Rhubarb hand piesRhubarb Toaster Strudels, makes 8 to 10.

Needed: 2 cups finely diced rhubarb (I used frozen and thawed before use), 1/3 cup sugar, 1/4 teaspoon ginger, one sheet of puff pastry, 1/2 cup butter and 1 to 1 1/3 cup powdered sugar.

Dice up the rhubarb and combine with the sugar and ginger in a bowl, set aside. Cut your puff pastry dough into 8 to 10 squares. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper lay out a square of dough, fill with a spoonful of rhubarb and fold over into a triangle. Use a fork to press the edges together. Continue until you have filled all the pastry squares. Bake at 375 F for 20-22 minutes.

Easy glaze recipeDuring the last 3-4 minutes of baking prepare your glaze. In a small pot melt the butter over low heat. Begin adding powdered sugar, 1/3 cup at a time and whisking to combine. Continue until you have the consistency you like. Remove toaster strudels from the oven and immediately drizzle glaze over them. The glaze will harden as it cools so be sure to get your drizzling done before it has time to harden.

  • These look so yummy – perfect for my Mum’s birthday. If I were to use fresh rhubarb, should I cook it before putting into the pastry or put it in raw? Thanks

  • I made these tonight using rhubarb from my farm share (Terra Organics for those in the Seattle area)… Oh, SO very yummie! Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe. I’ll be sharing these with my co-workers tomorrow morning – they are super excited, and I don’t blame them.

  • It’s look like very tasty food. i think this dish is very expensive. How much cost of this?

  • Love toaster strudel. – I was always a pop-tarts girl as a kid though. I suppose these are far more sophisticated …. and appetizing. – Your recipes always look delicious.

  • Can these be frozen and reheated? I would love to make some of these babies and pop them in my freezer to eat whenever!

  • A lot like a homemade poptart recipe I made & posted about. Rhubarb would be fab though!!
    Thank you!
