Easy Apple Strudel


I was so delighted to see puff pastry sheets selling here in my place. Can you believe it? If i am not wrong, they are only just available not long ago here in my decent little town :) With this store bought puff pastry sheet, making the not so traditional apple strudel couldnt be much easier. This is an easy apple strudel recipe with no cooking involved, just mix everything together and lay the apples over it or whichever way comes first and bake. Just a little note , i would suggest when rolling out the pastry sheet ( so that they are thinner ) , roll it on a plastic sheet or a towel. I rolled my first roll ona floured surface and yet it find it difficult to pick them up from rolling. They tend to stick still to the floured surface. I used a towel on my 2nd roll and it makes rolling a breeze.



Recipe ( with some reference from here )
Ingredients
2 puff pastry sheets
2 small green apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 pcs digestive biscuits, crushed
1/2tsp cinnamon plus 2 tbsp sugar
1/4 cup raisins

Directions
Thaw the frozen puff pastry sheet for about 15 minutes. Mix the chopped walnuts, biscuits crumbs, cinnamon sugar and raisins in a bowl.

On a plastic sheet or a towel, roll out the puff pastry about an inch or more if you can from the edges. The original measurement of the the pastry sheet i am using is 10" by 9.5". Along the longer end of the sheet, sprinkle the nuts raisin cinnamon sugar mixture , then lay the sliced apples over the nuts mixture ( or lay the apples first then nuts ). Roll up from the long edge and place them in the baking pan, seam side down. Make diagonal slits on the surface of the rolls. Bake in a preheated oven at 190C for about 35 mins or till golden brown.



See the rough surface on the top roll? that's the one that i had difficulty lifting up from the floured counter.

  2. Me too, when I found out the ready made puff pastry was available at the hypermarket here, I was so pleased. And now you have made me craving for apple strudel now. Your recipe looks really good as I can see you have added digestive biscuits too - interesting to me.

  4. Wow! It doesn't get much easier than that, Lena...I'm so afraid of puff pastry but I'm not sure why, lol...I baked Marion a strudel like dessert using Pillsbury crescent rolls and a can of Sprite soda. She said it tasted really good but I bet this would tast a whole lot better!!!

    Thank you so much for sharing, Lena...

  18. Hi Lena,

    I always thought ready to use puff pastry is selling at everywhere these days. Didn't that it was not available at your place... Where did you buy your puff pastry before it is available in your local area? Do you have to drive very far to buy them? You know what is not easily available in my local area? Batang fish!!! Hong Kong flour? They are available due to certain seasons and shipment! hmmm...

    Nice apple strudel :D

  19. hi zoe, oops...i didnt make myself clear on that. I was actually referring to the puff pastry big sheets. The small ones i can get it here but not the bigger sheets. The small ones are not able to roll up to make strudel like these :)
