Old, old recipe from Cook's Catalog, St. Michael's Byzantine Church, Western PA. If you like strudel, you'll like this recipe. It tastes much like a real strudel but is much less work. Best the first day as it gets a little damp from the apples the next day. Still good though! But don't worry; it'll be long gone by then. Some people sub cherry pie filling for the apples, but I think it's too wet. This church cookbook has some winners in it! I'v used it so much I have to use a rubber band to keep it together. The cookbook has an alternate filling for this strudel using angel food cake mix, nuts and maraschino cherries!? I've never tried it. Maybe I need to do that!
