frozen puff pastry, thawed
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.
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.
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.
Excellent recipe and very easy. I added just a dash of cinnamon to the filling. Will definitely make this again. Thanks Jess.
RECIPE WAS VERY EASY TO MAKE, TOOK VERY LITTLE TIME, TASTE GOOD. MY ONLY SMALL PROBLEM WAS HOW TO CUT IT. SUZANNE OCONNOR
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!
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.
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.
