oven about 325 degrees F

for 2 strudels
about 14 sheets of phyllo dough

Ingredients:
Filling for Strudel:
1 C. butter, melted and set aside to cool
4 medium size cooking apples (about 1 ¼ pounds)
2 Tablespoons Vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons white sugar
1 ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
½ teaspoon Allspice
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 C. walnuts, chopped finely
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
2 Tablespoons butter
3 / 4 C. fine dry bread crumbs (about 2 slices bread)

optional:
2 Tablespoons dark seedless raisins
3 Tablespoons Currants also to make the filling richer add 1 cup of applesauce In a pinch just use a can of apple pie filling. Add lemon peel though!
Directions:

Gather your ingredients to make the filling

1. Wash, core, and pare apples. Cut into slices about 1/8 in. thick and put into bowl with Vanilla extract and 2 Tablespoons brown sugar. Toss lightly to coat slices evenly. Set aside for at least 30 min., tossing occasionally.

2. Mix together white sugar, Cinnamon and Allspice. Blend in 2 Tbs. brown sugar and set this mixture aside.

3. optional you can blend in 1 cup of applesauce to make the filling richer.

3. Chop walnuts and set aside. Grate Lemon peel and set aside. Melt 2 Tbs. butter in skillet and toss dry bread crumbs in butter until thoroughly coated.

Unroll the Phyllo (filo) sheets

Keep the filo sheets covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to keep them from drying out while working other steps.

 

You can brush the sheets with a little butter or olive oil or even leave the oil and butter out to make it lighter.
I used 7 sheets for each strudel.

Spread half of the apple filling on the top, leaving 1 inch

Butter or olive oil the top for a richer looking crust.

 

Make another strudel with the other 7 sheets of dough.

Bake in a 325 degree oven for 45 minutes.

Slice and serve with whipped cream (Schlagsahne) or vanilla ice cream.
