How To Make Pear Strudel

A delightful alternative to the classic apple strudel. This has a lighter flavor compared to its counterpart but it is tasty all the same with its delicate flesh and flavor you'd only get from pears. These buttery and flaky little treats is certainly worth a try.

Prep: 40 mins
Cook: 25 mins
Total: 3 hrs 5 mins


  • 8 sheets frozen phyllo pastry, thawed as directed on package
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 medium ripe pears, finely chopped
  • 1 cup Post Raisin Bran Cereal


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. Stack phyllo sheets on cutting board, spraying each sheet with cooking spray before topping with another sheet.
  3. Cut stack crosswise in half to form 2 dough rectangles.
  4. Mix sugar and cinnamon.
  5. Reserve 1 teaspoon of the cinnamon mixture.

  6. Toss pears with cereal and remaining cinnamon mixture.
  7. Spoon half of the pear mixture lengthwise down center of each dough rectangle; fold both long sides of dough over pear mixture to enclose filling, overlapping sides of dough slightly.
  8. Place, seam sides down, on ungreased baking sheet.
  9. Spray lightly with cooking spray.
  10. Sprinkle with reserved cinnamon mixture.
  11. Bake 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown.

  12. Cut each dough rectangle in half.
  13. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  14. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature until ready to bake. Or, baked strudel can be covered and stored at room temperature for up to 2 hours before serving.
