Easiest Apple Strudel

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Ducky

This recipe came out of the puff pastry box and couldn't be easier. It makes a nice dessert and could probably be done with any pie filling. Prep time includes thaw time.

This was delicious. I used my own home made apple pie filling. I couldn't get the pastry to roll out to any bigger than about 9"X12" so I only used half the apple filling, I think maybe my box could be smaller than the size you used. I am going to use the other half tomorrow with the rest of the pie filling. Thanks for posting a great recipe. -- posted Jun 18, 2005 UPDATE-I made it again and still couldn't get it to roll out any bigger but it looked pretty good so I took a few pictures. Taste is excellent.
