This flaky and delicious strudel is deceptively easy to make, and can be filled with fruit, nuts, or cheese.
- Cut the butter into the flour until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add egg yolks and vinegar, then water. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate at least one hour.
- Divide dough in half. Roll each half into an oval on a lightly floured board.
- To fill, make inch-long cuts along the long edges of the oval. Add the filling in a stripe along the center. Pull the snipped pieces over the middle, alternating sides. Press the dough strips together along the top.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes. Filling should be bubbly and crust should be lightly golden.
I had to use some extra water to make my dough workable which could be due to my lack of experience working with strudel, however the taste is excellent. I went to the store to buy puff pastry and refused to pay almost $6.00 for 2 sheets of pastry. This recipe cost me less than $2.00. I will definitely use this recipe again to make strudel. Thank you for this recipe. Delicious!
