Easy apple strudel with flaky crust. Finely chopped nuts can be added if you like.

Top Review by TasteTester

I made this last week for the family and they really enjoyed it. However, my crust was not flaky -- it was a little bit mushy. I don't know if it was the type of apples I used -- they were Braeburns -- but we had a hard time cutting up the loaf. I will try it again, though, perhaps with Granny Smith apples, because it is a good recipe.
