I never made strudel before trying this recipe. I had an assortment of apples, so I'm not sure what variety they were. Instead of slicing, I cubed the apples into approx. 1/2" pieces, and didn't use just one sheet of phyllo per layer because the layers were so thin and it was hard to separate them from all the layers in the package. It turned out that I used approx. 3 or 4 sheets per layer, and it still turned out great. There was also apple mixture left over. Four small or three medium apples should be enough. Making a double recipe, I baked one strudel and froze the other for future baking. It was delicious! I will definitely make this again. ~The Mad Slovak~
This recipe worked really well, the filling is delicious. I used a whole packet of phyllo and 6 granny smith (green) apples which made a very large strudel. Definitely will do again for my Octoberfest themed Ozzie Xmas.
wonderful!! very quick and easy to make.I will make again !
i'm a chef in Kitchener/Waterloo and i wrote a menu for Oktoberfest and included this strudel recipe. i made them into individual size portions. i did add some nutmeg and calvados to the recipe and they are fantastic
Delicious Strudel, I did use puff pastry, so I baked it a little longer, but the filling is really delicious. Another ZWT keeper.
This is an outstanding quick strudel. The phyllo dough works perfectly and its crispiness is a perfect foil for the apples. And the short baking time leaves the apples with a bit of texture. And it's not overly sweet. Thanks for posting, Mama. (one sub: I used calvados instead of cider).
