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.

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.
