Apple Strudel

Recipe by LifeIsGood

A yummy recipe from Beyond Parsley cookbook. This makes 2 strudel rolls. If you're not familiar with phyllo dough. It can be delicate. I unroll the phyllo sheets and keep them covered with a slightly damp, clean kitchen towel - taking out 1 sheet at a time to work with. This keeps your phyllo from drying out. Use a pastry brush to spread the melted butter on the phyllo sheets.

This strudel is delicious and easy to make! I cut the recipe in half and used 21 oz. of granny smith apples . The sugar was the perfect amount - not too sweet. I used the full amount of cinnamon and an extra pinch of nutmeg. I was low on walnut so used walnuts and pecans in the filling and ground almonds between the phyllo layer.
