Difference Between Pie and Strudel

Whenever you need a snack, you will have various options at your disposal. While most people often pick food based on the outlook, it is important to know the ingredients and even how they are made. Also, it is important to differentiate these foods. For instance, most people have probably eaten a pie or a strudel in their life. But what is the difference between these two? 

What Is Pie?

A pie is a pastry dish made of dough that contains savoury or sweet ingredients. Sweet pies are often filled with fruits such as apples, brown sugar, nuts and sweetened vegetables. Savoury pies are filled with meat, eggs, cheese and even vegetables. 

Pie fillings are placed on top of the pastry and left open. This distinguishes pies from other pastries where the fillings are covered with dough. 

What is Strudel?

This is a pastry native to Vienna, Austria. It is made by rolling and stretching a thin sheet of dough and applying melted butter. The sheet of dough should be almost transparent. It is then filled with savoury fillings or even fruits and then rolled, creating several layers. The Fillings are then safely covered with the rolled dough, preventing the fillings from slipping out of the strudel. To save time, most bakers prefer using store-bought pastry. However, fresh dough can also be used. 

One of the most popular strudels enjoyed globally is the apple strudel. For best results, ensure you pre-heat your oven first and use a rimmed baking sheet. Also, be sure to place the filling in a straight line on your dough. You can also sprinkle with powdered sugar when done.
