For a quick Apple Strudel, you can use frozen Puff Pastry or Phylo Dough instead of authentic Strudel dough. Follow package instructions for thawing and rolling out.
1/4 cup Ground Walnuts
2 cups Sliced and Peeled Apples
1/2 cup Raisins
1/2 teaspoon Lemon Zest
1/3 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 recipe Strudel Dough 1 or Strudel Dough 2
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a large sheet pan or line it with parchment paper.
Combine the filling ingredients.
Follow the instructions for preparing and stretching the strudel dough.
Arrange a 2-inch thick strip of apple filling across one end of the dough (short side of rectangle), leaving about a 1 1/2 inch border from the edges. Fold over the 1 1/2 inch flaps of dough to the right and left of the filling. Brush the outside of the flaps with butter.
Follow the instructions for rolling up the strudel dough.
Cut a few small ventilation wholes on the top of the strudel. Bake the strudel for about 1 hour, basting it occasionally with melted butter, until the strudel is golden brown.
Remove the strudel from the oven. Allow it to cool somewhat, then dust with powdered sugar. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or a vanilla sauce.
