Ingredients

4 pears, peeled and quartered
100g sultanas
1 TB earl grey tea leaves
100g soft brown sugar
1 c water
2 tsp ground cinnamon
½ c castor sugar
275g ready made filo pastry
1 small lemon, juice only
75 g butter, melted
50g flaked almonds-toasted
1 TB icing sugar

Extra tips

Dust with extra icing sugar

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 190C.

Place the water, sugar and early grey leaves into a saucepan and bring gently to the boil. Add the pears and simmer for about 20 minutes or until cooked. Set aside to cool.

Prepare the filo pastry for the strudel by laying the first sheet on a work surface lined with baking paper. Using a pastry brush, brush the sheet with the melted butter and over-lap another sheet on top to form a rectangle about 40cm x 30cm. Continue to do this using the melted butter and filo sheets until all the sheets are used. Reserve a little melted butter for the final glaze.

In a bowl, mix together the brown sugar, cinnamon and sultanas. Dice the cooked pears and add to the sugar mixture, mixing well. Sprinkle the pear mixture on to the filo pastry rectangle, leaving 2.5cm free at the edges.

Fold the free edges of the long side of the rectangle over the pear mixture and starting at one end of the shorter side, start rolling up the filo pastry to form a swiss roll.

Transfer to a baking tray and brush with the remaining melted butter then dust liberally with the icing sugar. Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until crisp and golden brown. Sprinkle over the toasted almonds before serving.
