A sugar-free strudel cookie that is definitely not lacking in flavor. For a richer cookie, substitute sour cream for the plain yogurt. Yum! Very the jam flavor to suit your tastes.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Sift together flour, baking powder, and sugar substitute. Cut in the margarine until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add yogurt and egg; mix together to form a firm dough. If dough is too sticky, add a little more flour. Refrigerate dough overnight.

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  • Divide dough into three pieces. On a clean, floured surface, roll out each piece of dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Spread with the sugarless jam, then sprinkle with the nuts and raisins. Roll the dough up tightly like a jelly roll. Brush each roll with beaten egg, and bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Rolls should be golden brown. While they are still hot, cut on a diagonal into 1 inch thick slices, and let cool.

Dough is easy to work with. I used yogurt and instead of aspartame.8 g packets of saccharin and it worked fine. I suggest using a serrated knife to cut the rolls and wiping the blade after each cut to keep the tops jam-free. Read More

Made these for a friend who cannot have sugar. I only left out the raisins. I didn't like them - hate raspberry and found it kind of bland. Both my husband and the person I made them for loved them though. I also found it was a lot of work with the 3 steps. Definitely not a cookie. probably won't make again. Read More

We had to use more flour than the recipe stated to make the dough rollable. The dough was not too good at holding a lot of jam inside. The strudel has a basic textrue and not too much taste when more flour is added. Read More

Tasty but not exactly a cookie. I must have used too much jam; they came out a bit squishy and runny. Better to eat them with a fork! Not too bad overall. Read More
