Strudel can be called a traditional autumn pastry because it is during this period that the fruits that can be used to make the dessert, such as apples and pears, ripen. There are many techniques, but if you are short on time, you should use the simplest one. You can take ready-made puff pastry and make the filling in a frying pan.

The idea of making a quick strudel was published on the Instagram page of food blogger Oksana Kretsul (oksana_kretsul).
