Apple Strudel

I know I promised this recipe quite a few days ago so better late than never. I love apple strudel soo much!! I love the crispy layers of crust and the sweet but not too sweet apple filling. This recipe is VERY EASY so you must try it! No excuses!

Here is what you will need;
7 or 8 peeled and sliced apples- I used organic jonagold
2 sticks of butter
1 T cinnamon
1-cup sugar
½ package of phyllo dough- thawed in the fridge overnight

Melt 1 stick of butter in a sauté pan. Add apples, sugar and cinnamon. Cook for 10 minutes or just until apples begin to soften. Take 2nd stick of butter and melt in microwave. Use a brush and brush EACH LAYER OF PHYLLO DOUGH!! Don’t skip this step or your strudel will taste like shoe soles. Don’t ask how I know this. Place the buttered layers on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Spoon cooled apples into middle of phyllo. Bring the phyllo around and close off. Make sure you sealed well. Should seal easily with the phyllo being buttered. Take a fork and poke several holes on top of your strudel. Sprinkle top with sugar. Bake @ 325’ until golden brown. This should take any where from 20-25 minutes. Cut and enjoy…

It is very cool and rainy on Beaty’s Creek today. I am making my Thanksgiving Menu tonight and will post it soon. Can’t wait until Turkey Day!! Til then keep cooking….
