Pear Strudel

pear strudel

Normally, strudel made from Filo pastry, but this time I’ve made pear strudel with puff pastry. Once, Ive tried apple strudel at Austrian restaurant, it was sooo delicious and try to make by myself. The word “strudel” comes from German word means “whirlpool”, people in Germany love to eat apple strudel and pear strudel as dessert.
