Triple Berry Toaster Strudels feature a homemade triple berry jam that’s enveloped by two flaky pastry sheets. Once baked we drizzle a vanilla-almond glaze over each toaster strudel, and I’ve gotta say, it’s absolutely heavenly. I vowed to eat just one and that didn’t go over well. 😋 If there’s a recipe to test your self-control, it’s this one!

Breakfast or Dessert?

Do you eat a healthy breakfast every morning? There are mornings when I’ll wake up and crave something healthy (hello breakfast quinoa). We’re talking healthy morning drinks such as a broccoli smoothie, acai smoothie, or a healthy green smoothie. (All of which will fill you up and they taste crazy good.)  But then again there are days when I want dessert for breakfast. Exhibit A: these homemade toaster strudels. 

My mother would buy toaster strudels from the grocery store once every 5 years, maybe.  We never had them around our house. I just remember the times we did have them, I loved them. But eating them is 100% like eating dessert. You have a sweetened jam sandwiched between flaky pastry layers that’s covered in a sweetened glaze.

Umm, hello! This is basically what they serve in European pastry shops. And here we are making them in our home. 👊🏼 But let me preface this by saying this recipe is EASY. You won’t be slaving away in the kitchen. Quite the opposite actually.

Toaster Strudel Ingredients

  • Mixed berries: For convenience and ease I used frozen mixed berries. You can use fresh or frozen for this recipe.
  • Lemon juice: Adds a nice acidity to the jam that offsets the sugar. Use fresh lemon juice or lemon juice concentrate.
  • Granulated sugar: Sweetens the berry jam/compote.
  • Cornstarch: Helps thicken the berry filling so that it’s not runny.
  • Vanilla: Added for flavor.
  • Puff pastry sheets: To make everyone’s like easier we use store bought puff pastry. I use Pepperidge Farm brand. You can find it in grocery stores near the frozen whipped topping. (Once again, I am so grateful for pre-made puff pastry!) 😅
  • Glaze: You’ll need ingredients such as powdered sugar, milk/heavy cream, and vanilla & almond extract.

How to Make Triple Berry Toaster Strudels

  1. Make the berry filling. In a small saucepan over medium heat stir the berries, lemon juice, sugar and cornstarch. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cook for 6-7 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring often. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Let the filling cool completely. To speed up the cooling process place the filling in the fridge!

  2. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or a silicone baking mat.
  3. Cut the thawed puff pastry sheets into a total of 12 rectangles, 6 per sheet. If you purchase the Pepperidge Farms puff pastry the pastry will come folded in thirds. I unfold the pastry and cut along the long folded lines, then cut the strips in half to equal 6 rectangles.

  4. Spread 6 of the puff pastry rectangles on the parchment paper. Pierce the bottom of each rectangle with a fork. This prevents the bottoms from puffing up excessively.
  5. Fill the centers with a few spoonfuls of the berry mixture. Leave a 1/2″-1″ inch border on all sides. Use a pastry brush and brush the edges of the puff pastry with water. Use the remaining half of the puff pastry rectangles to top the berry covered pastries.

  6. Use the tines of a fork to seal the edges. Poke a couple holes along the top of the pastry with the fork. Brush each pop tart with the egg wash.

  7. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool 10 minutes before topping them with the vanilla-almond glaze.

Vanilla Almond Glaze

Notes

I used Pepperidge Farm frozen puff pastry. You can find them at the grocery store near the frozen whipped topping. 
When cutting the puff pastry into 6 rectangles, Just follow the lines of the pastry. If using the Pepperidge Farm brand, the pastry is folded into thirds. I cut along those folded lines to get 3 long strips. Then cut those strips in half.
