Make this recipe all the time. But as cider makers we do a blend of apples. Wonderful flavor. I also add 1/2 t of cardamon. I add 2 T. of vanilla. (Saw in an old german cookbook) I also, recently have saved on the calories by lightly spraying the sheets with butter flavored Pam like sprays. I always brush a light coating of butter on the filo leaves and lightly dust each with bread crumbs. I have even used substitutes for the sugar like stevia. Oh, yes and we prefer walnuts to almonds in ours.

Delicious breakfast this morning! I couldn't wait until later, so I had a piece. OK so kill me! :) It was so freakin good I had me another piece! The lemon really perked things up and like I said, it was freakin good!

Delicious. The lemon zest makes all the difference. I had an issue with the directions for filling and rolling. My other recipe for strudel says to align the filling with the long side of the pastry. Also, 1/2 a box of filo (at least, the brand I buy) is 20 sheets--not 10, so make a little extra filling and come out with 4 strudel if you like.

very easy to make but I think a pinch of salt to the apples would help. Very good anyway.

They way they do it here, by having a thin layer of strudel in between the filo, the butter enriches the flavor. I believe adding a pinch of salt and butter to the Mix in part 1, would help this recipe go a long way towards getting 5 stars from me. Also note this recipe is for two apple strudels ! Half the ingredients to just make one !

Super easy and super tasty! Great for a dessert or for breakfast! I re-heated one in the oven at 300 until it was warm and it came out perfect. Thank you for posting and for an easy strudel recipe.

This strudel was so easy to make, you can't imagine how great it tasted. Didn't last long here. Definitely worth making again & again.

Wonderful recipe! A friend and I made this for our regular "cooking afternoons". She's home with a new baby and this recipe got full marks for being not only delicious but also easy to make while entertaining a child! If you haven't got a 3 month old to look after, this dish will be an absolute breeze. Our filo pastry for some reason was not as big as the standard boxes so we didn't need all the apples but we turned the leftovers into apple crumble.
