PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

COMBINE pears, pumpkin, sugar, nuts, cinnamon, cloves and ginger in medium bowl. Spoon one-half of filling in center third of 1 pastry sheet.

MAKE downward slanting strips in outer sections of pastry (3/4-inch apart) starting about 1 inch away from top of pastry and side of filling, cutting to outside edges. Starting at top, alternately fold left and right side pastry strips over filling forming a braid. Seal at top and bottom of strudel. Place on ungreased rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with remaining filling and pastry sheet. Brush strudels with egg; sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.

BAKE for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and puffy. Serve warm.

Pumpkin Pear Strudel

This was my first time using puff pastry and was a lot easier to use than I expected. Everyone loved this recipe and thought the pumpkin pear combination was very good. I will definitely make this again.

I have made this recipe before. However, I do not like pears or walnuts. I substituted apples and pecans. I liked it alot better that way. You should try this!

This dish was relatively easy to make and as I do not particularly care for pears I still thought it was pretty good. My family loved it. The next time I cook it I may try it with peaches as I really like peaches a lot. Using the puff pastry was a big plus as it would have been a lot harder to bake if I had to make the pastry.

- Virginia Braddy from Hobgood, NC


Very tasty and quick strudel. I added some chopped sugar glazed pecans and everyone loved it. Next time I am going to try apples with glazed walnuts. YUM!

Pretty as the picture

We have tried this with pears and apples-both are great. Be careful not to underbake the pastry or it will be gummy!
