Apple Strudel

"A yummy recipe from Beyond Parsley cookbook. This makes 2 strudel rolls. If you're not familiar with phyllo dough. It can be delicate. I unroll the phyllo sheets and keep them covered with a slightly damp, clean kitchen towel - taking out 1 sheet at a time to work with. This keeps your phyllo from drying out. Use a pastry brush to spread the melted butter on the phyllo sheets."

  • Place second sheet directly over the first sheet and brush with butter and sprinkle with another fine layer of ground nuts.
  • Repeat this procedure until there are 5 sheets.
  • Then place half of the apple/walnut mixture along the long edge of your prepared phyllo , fold over extended sides of sheets (to cose ends) and roll like a jellyroll.
  • Repeat that process to make one more strudel.
  • Place strudels seamside down on a buttered (or sprayed with Pam) cookie sheet and then brush the strudels with a little more of the melted butter.
  • Score the tops.

  1. This strudel is delicious and easy to make! I cut the recipe in half and used 21 oz. of granny smith apples . The sugar was the perfect amount - not too sweet. I used the full amount of cinnamon and an extra pinch of nutmeg. I was low on walnut so used walnuts and pecans in the filling and ground almonds between the phyllo layer.

  2. This is so good!! I used Granny Smith apples and didn't have ground walnuts for the layers so used finely chopped walnuts. This was so simple to make and produces a very nice breakfast pastry or dessert. Was going to make just one roll, but glad I made two since I could probably eat a whole one myself! :) Made for Down on the Farm Tag.
