Diabetic Pear Strudel

Diabetic Pear Strudel created by Baby Kato

I needed an extra dessert for an expected dinner guest who is diabetic. After looking at recipes for a couple of hours, I found this one and it sounded yummy. My dinner will be next month but thought I would try it today to make sure it was good. It was very yummy and I will definitely serve it at my dinner. It's from diabetic-recipes.com.

ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 425F (220C)Gas Mark 7.
  • Use nonstick cookie sheet, spray lightly or cover with parchment paper.
  • Peel, core and thinly slice pears.
  • Lightly coat a nonstick pan with butter flavored cooking spray. (I just used butter).
  • Add the pears and saute for 2 minutes.
  • Stir in the zest, juice and sugar substitute. Cook until the pears are just cooked through. Set aside.
  • On a floured surface, roll the puff pastry to make a 12 1/2 X 10 1/2 (31.25 x 26.25) inch rectangle.
  • Sprinkle almonds on the pastry.
  • Drain pears and place down middle third (long way) of the puff pastry to within 1/2 inch (1.25cm) of the top and bottom edge.
  • Spray the edges of the pastry and fold each 1/3 side over fruit. I brushed on butter.
  • Place seam side down on cookie sheet.
  • Make slashes every 2 inches (5 cm).
  • Mix sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle on top.
  • Coat with butter flavored cooking spray. If you use melted butter, put on before cinnamon/sugar.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes until puffed and brown.
  • Allow to cool to room temperature then cut into 8 pieces. Can serve with sugar free icecream or whipped cream.

    Can you substitute apples for pears?

    I made this for my boyfriend who is a type 1 diabetic. I only used a sugar substitute so he could enjoy more of the dessert. He LOVED it and I was so happy at how easy it was to make. I had never worked with phillo dough and was a bit worried, but it was really fun. I have made this with other fruits and this has always been a huge hit with my friends. Definately one recipe to try!
