  • Preheat oven to 475 degrees Fahrenheit with rack on the lower to mid level position. Heat raisins and cider in small saucepan over medium heat until simmering. Then remove pan from heat and let stand.
  • Melt butter in small pan over medium heat until it foams. Then stir in bread crumbs and brown for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.
  • Peel, quarter and core apples; cut into 1/8" slices. Drain raisins. Combine apples, raisins, bread crumbs, 1/4 cup sugar, cinnamon and lemon juice in large bowl and mix.

Spoon filling onto middle of phyllo in a long strip. Fold short ends over filling and roll closest end, but not too tightly. Brush top with butter and sprinkle with sugar. Cut four 1" slits on top.

    I never made strudel before trying this recipe. I had an assortment of apples, so I'm not sure what variety they were. Instead of slicing, I cubed the apples into approx. 1/2" pieces, and didn't use just one sheet of phyllo per layer because the layers were so thin and it was hard to separate them from all the layers in the package. It turned out that I used approx. 3 or 4 sheets per layer, and it still turned out great. There was also apple mixture left over. Four small or three medium apples should be enough. Making a double recipe, I baked one strudel and froze the other for future baking. It was delicious! I will definitely make this again. ~The Mad Slovak~

    This recipe worked really well, the filling is delicious. I used a whole packet of phyllo and 6 granny smith (green) apples which made a very large strudel. Definitely will do again for my Octoberfest themed Ozzie Xmas.

    Delicious Strudel, I did use puff pastry, so I baked it a little longer, but the filling is really delicious. Another ZWT keeper.
