I made a spiced pear filling and made a "mock" strudel with it and this as the pastry, in the oven now and it smells divine!

did it finish cooking? I've never used the dough for a strudel. I've done the crescents/spirals filled with fruits, but sometimes I find the bottoms will burn a little before the tops brown, so I have to turn the oven down 25 degrees. Fingers crossed it turned out! I told my DH about the strudel and he wants me to try it too, lol. I have two of the pastry doughs in the freezer and a bunch of apples to use up :)

I rolled the dough out into a large rectangle, put the pears down the middle, folded the 2 short ends in, then folded the one long side over the filling, then the other over and tucked the ends underneath, brushed lightly with butter, baked at 350 for 45 minutes, I use Silpats so the bottoms don't brown too fast, I will post a photo once it is cool enough to slice.

Oh awesome! Thanks so much for the info :) Did you do a cooked pear filling, or were they raw still? sorry for so many questions, lol ;)

they were raw as they were so ripe they were quite soft, I added a tbsp of vanilla sugar, a dash of cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and cardamon and a tsp of cornstarch and lemon juice tossed together lightly, with 5 large pears cut into slices.

I had a slim slice as I am on a special diet, it was very good, gave half to my neighbour who gifted us the pears and they said it was awesome as well.
