Loved this! True to it's name...EASY! Only changes: Used 3 Granny Smith apples & added a few drops of lemon juice, 1/2C of pecans (no raisins) and sugared the pastry before adding the apples. Brushed pastry after it was rolled with melted butter and then sugar. Seems like a lot of sugar but the apples I used were pretty tart and needed it. (And we aren't hugh sweet eaters.) Mine have cooked in about 12-15 min...maybe it's just my oven, but I would watch to make sure not to burn bottoms. VERY, VERY GOOD & EASY. Read More

ok but the juice content was so high that the crust was not flaky but clumped on the bottom and carmalized. Must eat hot and not great after cooled. Read More

This recipe was nice and easy, which was key for me because I had to bake 40 of them for an Oktoberfest. I added some cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg to the apples and sugar, and sifted some powdered sugar on top for a very professional looking presentation. Read More

We like to make this for an apple dessert that's a ton quicker than apple pie. Really easy! However, I prefer to cook the apple filling in a saute pan on top of the stove till slightly softened before putting in the pastry to end up with a more done result without overbrowning the pastry. And definitely add some cinnamon to the filling! Read More

I used layers of phyllo dough instead of puff pastry (with melted butter and sprinkled sugar between each of 3 layers) and dried cranberries instead of raisins as well as adding a little cinnamon but the basic recipe is a good one. Be sure your filling isn't too wet. I also brushed the top with butter instead of egg. This actually made two strudels for me but still only served 6. Read More

Very EZ to put together and lots of compliments. Guests said "Better than apple pie!" Served warm with vanilla ice cream. Only used 1/3 cup sugar (subbed a couple delicious apples in place of granny smith) and added a sprinkle of cinnamon and a little melted butter. Only used 1/4 cup regular raisins. Can't imagine using a full cup of sugar AND that many raisins - would've been way too sweet. Also didn't want to waste an egg for the wash so I just sprinkled a bit of powdered sugar on top after baking. Made a few slashes on top to vent before baking and covered my cookie sheet with no-stick foil. Will make again for sure. Read More

This was a great addition to the mini-Oktoberfest we had for some neighbors - bratwurst German potato salad beer and apple strudel. What's not to like?!!! Here is how I modified the recipe for our taste: 3 apples 1/2C raisins 2/3C brown sugar 1t cinnamon 2T Minute Tapioca. I used the puff pastry egg and 1/4C milk as listed but added sliced almonds on top as others suggested. I also took the suggestion of cooking the apples brown sugar cinnamon and tapioca in a sauce pan for 15 minutes on medium heat. Baking time was only 25 minutes in the oven. Three apples makes enough for 2 strudels. When they came out of the oven and cooled a little I sprinkled them with powdered sugar. Simply delicious for dessert or breakfast. I received many compliments. Read More
