  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour


  • 3 cups apricot preserves, divided
  • 3/4 cup shredded coconut, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts, divided
  • 1 cup granulated sugar mixed with 3 teaspoons cinnamon, divided
  • 3/4 cup golden raisins, divided
  • Confectioners' sugar for dusting and rolling


  1. Dough: Mix dough ingredients together in bowl and knead into smooth dough. Separate into three balls. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for a few hours.
  2. Roll 1 ball of dough onto lightly floured and confectioners' sugared surface. Roll into circle.
  3. Filling: Spread each circle generously with 1 cup apricot preserves.
  4. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup shredded coconut.
  5. Spread 1/2 cup chopped walnuts over top.
  6. Sprinkle with 1/3 cup cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  7. Top with 1/4 cup golden raisins. Roll from one side into a log. Pinch ends together.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes or until top is lightly golden. Do not over-bake (the top looks light).
  9. Remove from oven and lightly slice 1/4 inch crosswise only on the top of the loaf. Wait 15 minutes and slice through. Let cool completely.
  10. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

Yield: 3 strudels, each cut into 12 slices

* The dough may be frozen in three balls. The baked slices can also be frozen without confectioners' sugar on top.
