    I can't believe that nobody else reviewed this. This is the easiest and tastiest strudel. My dad goes on and on about how great this is and how it's just like my grandmother's. And it's nowhere close to the headache of her recipe. I've won throw downs with this, one 7-0 with 7 judges. The worst thing I can say is that you'll gain 20 pounds by reading the recipe. Awesome Messy Cook! And I've learned to keep the kitchen a little cleaner as I go. But this is my go to recipe when I want to show off.

    I really liked the filling--the breadcrumbs added an (almost) nut-like favor. I didn't have any luck with the pastry, though! When cold it was workable, but once it started to get a little warm, it was too sticky. After adding a bit more flour, I tried to roll it between pieces of wax paper (like pie crust) so I could put it in the fridge, but it just stuck and wouldn't come free! I will need to practice with this one! Thank you!

    After a coulple of times I made the dough and learned how to roll it correctly, it looked almost as good as it tasted. This is one of the best recipes I've made.
