Old Fashioned Apple Strudel Recipe
This Apple Strudel does use the old fashioned ingredient of lard but in a very small amount and the taste of the finished strudel just can't be beat. Do swap it out for shortening if it makes you uncomfortable using the lard.
1 pound apples - peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1/4 cup golden raisins
1/4 cup dried currants
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 slices crumbled brown bread
1/2 (16 ounce) package phyllo dough
1/4 cup butter, melted
Preheat oven to 400-degrees.
In a bowl, combine apples, raisins, currants, cinnamon, sugar and bread crumbs. Stir well.
Bake for 40 minutes or until the filling is bubbly and the topping is light brown in color. Cool before serving.
Spread several sheets of pastry generously with melted butter and lay them on atop the other on a baking sheet.
Spread the fruit mixture evenly over the top sheet, then roll the sheets up to form a log shape. Brush with melted butter again.
Bake in preheated oven 30 minutes, until pastry is golden brown and fruit is tender.
Recipe makes 4 servings.
