Cook Time: Minutes

Nutritional Information

A delicious dessert with an Asian twist! The mouth watering combination of flavors is to die for; melted butter, coconut, ginger, fresh Asian pears, and juicy lychee. You can almost taste the possibilities!

Ingredients

  • 3 each Phyllo Dough (sheets)
  • 1/4 cup Melted Butter
  • 1/3 cup Coconut (toasted, shredded)
  • 2 cup Lychee (seeded, halved)
  • 1/4 cup Walnut (roasted, chopped)
  • 1/4 cup Raisins (soaked in plum wine)
  • 3 tbsp Ginger (candied)
  • 1 1/2 cup Asian Pear (peeled, diced)
  • 1 tsp Lemon Zest
  • 1 tbsp Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Lime Juice
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Five Spice Powder
  • 1 tbsp Plum Wine
  • Sugar (confectioner's)

Directions

  • 1. Filling:
  • 2. Soak your golden raisins in plum wine overnight or longer.
  • 3. Depending on the ingredients available to you, mix appropriate quantities up so as to fill the dough. You can certainly use more or less of each ingredient to suit your individual tastes. You'll need about four cups total filling.
  • 4. Assembly:
  • 5. Spread the two sheets of dough out on your work surface, one on top of the other. Paint the top layer of dough with some of the melted better and then spread a nice thin layer of toasted coconut over the entire pastry.
  • 6. Pour your filling along the long edge of the dough, and roll the dough up as tightly as possible (remember to fold in the ends as you roll so the ends are "sealed") and put on a non-stick baking sheet.
  • 7. Paint the top of the roll with melted butter and bake at 350 F until the dough is golden brown.
  • 8. When done, take the strudel out of the oven and let it cool on a rack. Just before serving, sprinkle a little powdered sugar over the top. Slice the roll on a diagonal for a more attractive presentation.
  • 9. For elegant presentation, you might serve the strudel pieces on a plate with slices of kiwi, orange, lemon, and pear as garnish.
