Re:Crisp Pear Strudel

I did not use the raisins but subbed some briefly soaked dried cherries for them. Also, I didn't poach the pears but simply cooked them with a little sugar and lemon juice to release the extra juices, then drained them and proceeded. Instead of using amaretti crumbs, I subbed crushed plain cheerios -- a super cheap and easy sub that I've used in many other strudels. I love the ground nuts between the pastry layers -- it adds a wonderful textural and taste element. It was a good jumping off point for me, and the technique and temperature/time instructions were just right.
