Apple Strudel


  • 6 cups sliced tart apples
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped almonds
  • 10 leaves packaged phyllo dough
  • 2 cups butter or margarine, melted
  • 1 cup bread crumbs


  1. Mix together the apples, raisins, lemon zest, sugar, cinnamon, and almonds and set aside.
  2. Place a phyllo leaf on a large kitchen towel and brush with butter. Place a second leaf on top of the first and brush with butter. Repeat three more times, making a stack of 5 leaves.
  3. Combine the bread crumbs with 1/4 cup butter in a small saucepan and cook over moderate heat until lightly browned. Sprinkle a little less than half the bread crumbs on the buttered phyllo. Place half the apple mixture in a strip about 3 inches wide along the narrow edge of the phyllo. Lift the towel, using it to roll the phyllo around the filling. Use the towel to place the strudel on a greased baking sheet. Brush with butter and sprinkle with about 2 tablespoons of the crumbs. Repeat the entire procedure for the second strudel.
  4. Bake in a preheated 400 degrees F oven for 20 to 30 minutes, until golden brown.

Makes 2 strudels to serve 10 to 12.
