Quick Apple Strudel
Here's an easy version of Apple Strudel, made with dressed-up apple pie filling and filo dough. If you want to use fresh apples, peel and slice 2-3 apples. Cook in a saucepan with 2 tablespoons apple juice, 1 tablespoon flour, a pinch of salt, and 1/4 cup brown sugar until the apples are crisp-tender. Cool and use as directed.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: Serves 8

Ingredients:

  • 21 ounce can apple pie filling
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 9 sheets filo dough, thawed
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Using a slotted spoon, remove apples from the pie filling, discarding much of the thick liquid. Place in medium bowl; stir in walnuts, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and lemon zest.

In small bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and mix well. On work surface, place one sheet of filo dough. Brush with butter and sprinkle with a generous teaspoon of the cinamon sugar mixture. Repeat layers, using all of the filo dough.

Spoon apple filling across one long end of the filo stack, leaving a 2" border along one long edge and the sides. Brush edges around apple filling with butter. Fold in side edges, then roll up filo dough, enclosing the filling. Brush edge with butter and seal. Brush butter over the entire roll.

Using two spatulas, carefully place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees F for 20-30 minutes or until pastry is golden brown and crisp. Cool on pan for 10 minutes, then using two spatulas, remove to wire rack to cool. Serve warm.
