Treat of the week: Pear and Cherry Strudel




A wonderful dinner of my mother’s homemade red sauce and meatballs takes center stage as this week's "Treat of the Week."  Accompanying the dinner was a luscious, cool  salad of greens, pineapple, nuts, strawberries and imported Italian truffle cheese with a fresh vinaigrette dressing and a crusty ciabatta loaf along with an assortment of imported cheeses.









Following this was a glorious new treat, a lovely homemade strudel baked in a delicate, tender hand-rolled crust washed in an egg glaze and dusted with turbinado sugar.  Inside, the pastry was bursting with the flavors of fresh cherries and pears.  Served up with a side of beautifully whipped cream, this new dessert made for a perfect Sunday afternoon.
