Cherry Strudel Bites

Serves: 8

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! My weekend was fabulous! Friday night I went to the inversions class at my yoga studio. One word — awesome!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I can now hold my forearm balances, handstands and headstands for extended periods of time! I can also finally do the splits while in a headstand too! I am still not where I’d like to be yet….but let’s just say I moved my kitchen table and rolled out my yoga mat Saturday morning and it has been there ever since. You know, for when I get a quick urge to do a handstand?! haha I think more than anything I just enjoy the challenge of it all!

Sadly, the Celtics lost to the Knick’s on Saturday, BUT the boyfriend is taking me, Samantha and her best friend to tomorrow night’s game! We are sitting in section 108….look for us on t.v!! I will be sporting my Celtics sweatshirt! ๐Ÿ˜‰ It will beย  a hard ride home for me if they lose and I am in the car with 3 Knick’s fans!

Don’t forget that Wednesday is the 1yr anniversary of Ingredients Of A Fit Chick, so I will have some great giveaways! Make sure to stop by and check them out! You definitely won’t want to miss them! Well, I guess if nobody stops by then that means I get to keep all the cool stuff for myself ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ok, so now onto today’s business! This recipe is a spin off of these delicious bites that I made last fall! For some reason I had a craving for one a few weeks ago and thought, why not make them again? They were a huge hit! But I was also in the mood for a cherry pie filling, so I combined the two and WOW did they turn out delicious! You can bet I will be making many more flavors of these!! I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! ๐Ÿ™‚

18. Put the yogurt into a ziplock bag and snip off the end.

19. Swirl the frosting on top in whatever pattern you desire!

These little strudel bites are just like mini cherry pies!!! They are loaded with cherries and sweetness from the vanilla dough! It makes me feel like I am eating something straight off of a bakery shelf!!! If you decide to leave off the frosting they are amazing straight out of the oven too with their ooey gooey cherry filling! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Those look great! I have just bookmarked the recipe so I can give them a go :) I definitely love a good challenge. I celebrated my 30th birthday over the weekend which was lovely. Favourite pie flavour would have to be pecan or apple.

  • Okay these seriously sound soo good! Not that anything you make ever doesn't sound good :-) I'd have to say cherry pie is top of my list. Although a good mixed berry is always good too! Or apple... too many to choose from!
