  • Drain cherries, reserving 1/3 cup juice. In a large saucepan, combine the cherries, sugar, cranberries and butter. Cook and stir over medium heat until heated through. Combine cornstarch and reserved juice until smooth. Stir into pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 1-2 minutes longer or until thickened. Remove from the heat stir in walnuts.
  • Unfold one pastry sheet and cut in half. Mound half of cherry mixture on one pastry half to within 1/2-in. of edges. Top with remaining pastry half; pinch edges to seal. Repeat with remaining pastry and filling.
  • Place on a greased foil-lined baking sheet. With a sharp knife, cut diagonal slits into tops of strudels; brush with egg. Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.
