With the kitchen remodel we went through recently, I fell out of the habit of doing updates because frankly we were doing very little cooking while the kitchen was tore apart. Then after that was done other distractions came around, but now it is time to get back to blogging.
Costco has their Kirkland Signature Braided Apple Strudel on sale this month and I have to say it is a must buy. At full price, it is a good deal, it is certainly a better value than buying pastries at a bakery or out of a vending at work. On sale, it is an absolute bargain. It is a well made strudel with a good quantity of apple filling and well executed and flaky crust.
While we had some as-is for breakfast during the week, I thought that kicking them up a notch on the weekend was a great idea. To do this, we heated them up in the toaster oven.
After they were a cozy, warm temperature we got some nice vanilla ice cream and served them a la mode.
This worked wonderfully. It was easy, delicious and indulgent. I wouldn't suggest this on a daily basis, but for a special occasion or just because you feel you need a pampering, I highly recommend this.
I guarantee you that every time we buy the strudel, we will be thinking about doing this!
