I love apple strudel. But I have never been able to make anything that stood out, until now.
I saw this great Apple Strudel recipe from Michael’s Inspiredbycharm blog. I will tell you, this blog is my new obsession. Michael is not only a whiz at recipes, he is a decorator extraordinaire, does some great DIY projects and, he paints to boot!
The filling in this strudel is so good, you can use it to top vanilla ice cream and you will be in heaven! For that matter, it would be delicious in turnovers, squares or anything else you need an apple filling for.
Measuring Cups & Spoons
Short on space? These measuring cups stack perfectly to store in a kitchen drawer for easy access.
Precut Silicone Parchment Paper
Convenient precut sheets. You can easily lift the Strudel’s to the baking sheet. Making several sheets of cookies. Silicone parchment is reusable to accommodate several batches of cookies.
And it’s super easy to make!
Put all filling ingredients into a saucepan and cook until thick about 7 minutes. Let cool.
I usually use Dufour frozen puff pastry, but didn’t have any so I used Pepperidge Farm instead. Or, if you are adventurous and have time, make your own puff pastry.
On a piece of parchment, roll the puff pastry out to about 15% bigger than out of the package.
Fill the middle half with the cooked apple filling staying about an inch away from on the top and bottom.
Cut slats in the left and right sides.
Wet the tips of the slats and crisscross onto the apple filling.
Brush with an egg wash.
Lift the parchment and place on a cookie sheet.
Do the same for the other strudel.
Cut the excess parchment away.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the tops are browned.
The use of Granny Smith apples gives the filling a tart taste which is perfect in the strudel against the sweet glaze on top. Really, really good!
