Well, it should have been a sour cherry strudel. I just didn’t have the time and desire to roll out the dough, so I turned to the puff pastry supply in the freezer. It turned out to be a medium-sized, slightly burnt disaster (because of the oven, not me, lol), with some fruit and the sheets unfolding nicely at the top.
Obviously in the summer we prefer anything with fruit, even for coffee. Puff pastry with sour cherries is made very quickly, it is not very sweet and if you do not like sour cherries, you can use anything else: apricots, peaches, apples, pears, plums, etc.
I used a portion of dough from Morărița – there are 2 square sheets, the size of an oven tray, from which I made 4 long puff pastry, to look like strudel. But you can slice the dough into individual oval or square pieces. See for yourself what you’re good at, rolling or cutting. 😛
Until the dough thawed, I prepared the fruit. One kilogram of sour cherries, washed, cleaned of seeds and stalks, drained and put with 2-3 tablespoons of sugar to boil on the fire, about 10-15 minutes, to soften and evaporate the juice – or you can drain and use it as a syrup. I mixed the drained fruit with half a tablespoon of flour/ starch. Another option is to use fresh fruit, well drained of juice and mixed with breadcrumbs fried in a little butter and sugar, which will absorb the excess juice.
When the dough has thawed, sprinkle some breadcrumbs on each prepared piece and place the cold fruit, then roll and place in the pan. I drilled each piece from place to place with the fork and put it in the preheated oven, over medium heat, for about 40 minutes. The idea is to be evenly baked on all sides. 🙂
Remove from oven, powder with sugar and cut when cold. Very good for coffee. 😀 But next time I’ll do the strudel. :))))
