Easy Strudels full of YUM!

Oh, wow! We threw these together and YUMMY! If you like strudels, either frozen variety, Arby's or whoever, you have to try these!! It took only a few minutes to prepare. See notes at the end...recipe can vary.

For Strudel:
1 pkg. of frozen puff pastry, thawed. (Usually 2 sheets in pkg.)
1 can fruit pie filling (apple, cherry, blackberry..you choose)

Icing:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp milk
1 tsp vanilla

Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Unfold 1 thawed pastry sheet. It should be roughly a large square (you can roll if not). Cut into 4 smaller squares. Scoop a little pie filling onto one corner of smaller squares. Fold over to make triangle and seal edges (by pinching together). Repeat with other pastry sheet.

Place triangles onto cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove and let cool.

Icing: Mix powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk. Add more milk, a little at a time, until it reaches a consistency that you can drizzle (still a little thick). Drizzle over cooled strudels and serve.

**These can be frozen and reheated for more yummy later! (Frozen after baked)
**You can use crescent rolls-pinching two together to make a small square. Fillo dough may not work the same. Also you can easily double the recipe, and do two different kinds of filling. There are some recipes where you can even make your own pie filling.

Should you freeze them before or after you bake them? They sound great!

I added it to the recipe. Freeze after you bake. We just refrigerated ours...they didn't last long, but reheated they were just as good. (And don't "lose shape" or anything.)
