This is an easy apple strudel version with puff pastry that is ready in less than an hour. It tastes especially delicious fresh out of the oven with some vanilla ice cream.

  • Combine apples, 3/4 cup sugar, raisins, walnuts, and cinnamon in a large bowl for the filling.

  • Dust a flat work surface lightly with flour. Unroll puff pastry and sprinkle lightly with flour. Roll out slightly and mark into 3 equal sections. Spoon filling into the central section then fold over the section on the left and brush with egg. Fold the right section on top, just like a letter. Make shallow diagonal cuts in the top layer of the apple strudel. Brush with egg and sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until apple studel is puffed up and golden, 25 to 30 minutes.

This is a fast and simple recipe. I precooked the apples with the sugar (reduced to 1/2 c.) until tender and juices were reduced. Allowed to cool, then mixed in raisins, cinnamon (only 1 teaspoon), and walnuts. Precooking the apples kept the juices from making the pastry soggy on the bottom and assured that the apples were cooked completely. I made one strudel as the recipe stated and made another one with my changes. The original recipe was overly sweet IMHO, the 2 teaspoons of cinnamon overwhelmed the strudel, and the apples were still a little firm. I folded the end of the pastry over the filling before folding over like an envelope, no fruit or juices escaped out the ends. Read More

Next time I won't use as much sugar. It was a little on the sweet side for me. But my husband seemed to enjoy it. So I will probably make it again. Read More

Yes I used Apple pie filling as I had decided to make this at the last minute. Made my own sugar topping with raw sugar and 1 packet vanilla sugar mixed sprinkled over egg wash. Before it was completely cooled I sprinkled red and green sprinkles as it's time for the holidays. Read More

Yummy! Yummy! Easy to make and tastes great. There was so much apple filling that I made a second strudel. Read More
