Cream Cheese Cherry Strudel Recipe

Cream Cheese Cherry Strudel

3 oz. package cream cheese, softened

¼ cup sugar

¼ tsp. almond extract

6 (13×9 inch) frozen fillo (phyllo) pastry sheets, thawed

¼ cup margarine, melted

3 Tbsp. PLAIN bread crumbs

16 oz. can pitted tart or dark sweet cherries, well drained

¼ cup sliced almonds

1 tsp. sugar

Heat oven to 375 F.  Grease cookie sheet.  In medium bowl, combine cream cheese, ¼ cup sugar and almond extract; set aside.

Unroll fillo sheets; cover with plastic wrap or towel.  Place 1 fillo sheet on large sheet of plastic wrap.  Brush with melted margarine and 1 tablespoon bread crumbs.  Repeat layering 5 more times, using melted margarine on each sheet and 1 tablespoon bread crumbs on alternating sheets.  (Top fillo should be brushed margarine only.)  Spread cream cheese mixture over fillo to 1 ½ inches from each edges.  Top with cherries and almonds.  Fold shorter sides of fillo 1 inch over filling.  Starting with longer side and using plastic wrap, lift fillo and carefully roll up jelly-roll fashion.  Place on prepared cookie sheet.  Brush with remaining melted margarine and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar.  Bake at 375 F. for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown.     6 to 8 servings
