This strudel was delicious! I am from Austria and know my strudels...Moist and flaky with a delicious pear - raspberry filling. We served it with whipped cream - a real treat! Thanks for posting!
Yummy... what a treat this is, and it wasn't so hard to put together either. I served it with whipped cream , so not so low fat after all after my addition. This was reviewed by a houseload of guests, some gave it 3 stars and some 4 stars and over all the 4 stars won out by a narrow margain. It seems that people either love warm fruit in a dessert .. or not ..as my reviewers remarked in both positive and not so positive views. Presentation was impressive and I'll be repeating this for the fruit lovers in the future. Thanks for a great recipe :)
