RECIPE : Easy Apple Strudel
Perfect for a sweet treat with your morning coffee or a satisfying dessert at the end of the day , this apple strudel will make it hard to only have one slice. Crispy puff pastry on the outside and warm baked apple on the inside, what’s not to love ?
2 Granny Smith Apples - peeled , cored & chopped
3 tbsp Brown Sugar
4 tbsp White sugar - 2 for apple mixture , 2 for nut mixture
2 tbsp Flour
2 Sheets Puff Pastry - thawed to room temperature
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup ground or hand chopped walnuts
2 tbsp panko bread crumbs
1 egg and 1 tsp water for egg wash
Preheat your oven to 375°F
Peel, core & chop the apples into small cubes and place in a large bowl. You will need to be able to roll the dough without it poking through. The 2 apples should yield 1.5 - 2 cups.
Add cinnamon, white sugar and flour.
In a small bowl , mix the chopped walnuts , white & brown sugar and panko bread crumbs.
Roll out your thawed pastry sheets into about a 11 x 12” rectangle onto a sheet of parchment paper.
take 1/2 of the walnut mixture and cover 1/3 of the dough and place 1/2 of the apple mixture on top.
Using the wax paper sheet for help - roll the dough (ending with the seam side underneath), use a fork to seal the ends and tuck the ends underneath.
Repeat steps 5-7 with the remaining ingredients.
brush the top with an egg wash and make about 10 slits on the top.
Bake for 45 minutes until the crust is golden
Serve warm for dessert or let cool and enjoy the next morning
