INGREDIENTS
  • 2 cups (about 2 small) peeled, cored and diced pears
  • 1 cup LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts

MAKE IT
Step 1
Preheat oven to 375° F.
Step 2
Combine pears, pumpkin, sugar, nuts, cinnamon, cloves and ginger in medium bowl. Spoon one-half of filling in center third of 1 pastry sheet.
Step 3
Make downward slanting strips in outer sections of pastry (3/4-inch apart) starting about 1 inch away from top of pastry and side of filling, cutting to outside edges. Starting at top, alternately fold left and right side pastry strips over filling forming a braid. Seal at top and bottom of strudel. Place on ungreased rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with remaining filling and pastry sheet. Brush strudels with egg; sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.
Step 4
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and puffy. Serve warm.
