Filling for Romanian Strudel
Each filling is enough for one portion of dough (that is, 1/2 of one batch of Sour Cream Mock Puff Dough). You need not be exact with measurements and feel free to substitute what you like. Instead of the Turkish delight, I often use gummy bears, Swedish berries (cut up) or any other sort of tasty, jelly-like candies.
HORN OF PLENTY FILLING
DRIED FRUIT AND TURKISH DELIGHT FILLING

1/3 cup chopped Turkish delight or any gummy-like, chewy candy
1/2 cup plumped, dried raisins

1/3 cup, canned pineapple, well-dried and diced
Mix ingredients together thoroughly in a bowl; set aside and have ready to fill strudel.
