  • Sprinkle 3/4 cup crumbs on the layered phyllo leaves.
  • Mound 1/2 of the filling in a 3-inch strip along the narrow end of the phyllo, leaving a 2-inch border.
  • Lift towel, using it to roll leaves over apples, jelly roll fashion.
  • Brush top of the strudel with butter and sprinkle with 2 tbsp crumbs.
