I used the dough recipe for a different apple strudel filling--the other dough was impossible to work with! To echo the other reivew, this dough is super easy to work with and has a texture that is like a cross between pie crust and shortcake--very tasty, but a little different. Definitely a keeper (that saved my dessert)! Thank you!
