Easy Apple Strudel

Only nine days left until the official start of fall. One of the reasons I love fall is because it is also the beginning of apple season. Every year around the middle of September my family and I go up to the foot hills to pick apples. We picnic, eat caramel apples and gorge ourselves on apple turnovers. I’m sure you’re thinking we must make ourselves sick and you’re right we do. It is our way of celebrating fall and continuing an annual tradition.

The Easy Apple Strudel recipe is very easy to make, hence the name Easy Apple Strudel. I pretty much like to eat the strudel all day long.  I start with some in the morning because it is great for breakfast.  Then I have some with lunch, I count it as a “fruit”. Finally, after I eat dinner I have it for dessert. So you can see it is a multipurpose food. Even my kids like it although they say they don’t like baked goods with fruit. Whatever, kids.

Easy Apple Strudel

Crust:

2 1/2 cups flour

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup butter, softened

1 egg yolk and milk to make 2/3 cup, lightly beaten

Place all of the ingredients in the bowl of an electric mixer.  Blend on medium speed until all ingredients are combined. Divide dough in half. Roll out half the dough on a well floured surface. Place it in a 15×10 inch jelly roll pan.Strudel DoughBottom half of strudel doughApple Filling:

2 tablespoons flour

1 egg white, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Combine all of the ingredients except the egg white. Pour over the bottom crust. Roll out the rest of the dough and place on the top of the apple mixture. Brush the top of the dough with the egg white. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and fruit is bubbling from the sides.apple peeler, corer, slicerapples covering bottom crust

    I had apple pie for breakfast this morning. My daughter made it yesterday. I have to agree, apple pie or apple strudel make the perfect breakfast food. 🙂

    I will have to make that recipe for the ladies that come to my house for bunco or bridge. I looks really good especially the glaze over the top.
