Sift flour and salt into mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and add oil and egg. Gradually work in, adding warm water. Knead dough very well to improve the elasticity of the dough. Place dough in a bowl set in a pan of warm water or on a bread board and covered with a heated iron skillet. Prepare filling while dough warms. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

When dough is warm, stretch it over a floured cloth on a table until paper thin. Trim hard edges. Brush with melted butter. Arrange apple slices over all of dough except about 6 inches on one end. Combine remaining ingredients and sprinkle over apples. Drizzle with remaining butter. Roll as for jelly roll. Arrange in horseshoe shape in greased 15x18 inch pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour, brushing occasionally with more melted butter.

I am looking for a recipe for strudel that was made in the olden days. It consists of nuts, raisins, apples, and the seasoning. I would love to make it for my husband, but I can't find the recipe. His grandmother use to make this.

  • 2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. raisins

Thaw the pastry sheet at room temperature for 40 minutes or until it's easy to handle. Heat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet. Stir the egg and water in a small bowl. Mix the sugar, flour and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add the apples and raisins and toss to coat. Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the sheet into o a 16x12-inch rectangle. With the short side facing you, spoon the apple mixture onto the bottom half of the pastry to within 1-inch of the edges. Starting at the short side closest to you, roll up like a jelly roll. Place seam side down onto the baking sheet. Tuck ends under to seal. Brush with the egg mixture. Cut several 2-inch long slits 2-inches apart on the top. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden. Cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Slice and serve warm. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, if desired.


Serves: 6
