Introduction: Apple Walnut Strudel

About: Hello, my name is Auroris. Every day we have the opportunity to learn new things, to rethink tired processes, and to improve the way we work.

I want to share with you a recipe of delicious Apple Strudel with Walnuts & Cinnamon.

I found this recipe few years ago and it become my favorite winter dessert. As in "the right" recipe you have to knead the dough, I decide to cheat and do easier way. We will use bought puff pastry sheets.

Let's start!

Step 1: Ingredients

  • 2 Puff pastry sheets
  • 3 Green Apples
  • 100g Walnuts
  • 1 tbs Cinnamon
  • 2 tbs Flour
  • 3 tbs Sugar sugar
  • 3 tbs Brown sugar
  • Powdered sugar (for serving)
  • 3-4 tbs Bread crumbs
  • 1 Egg

Step 2: Apple Filling

Chop apples (I use Granny Smith) in small cubes and mix with:

  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon powder
  • 2 tbsp Flour
  • 3 tbsp Sugar sugar
  • 3 tbsp Brown sugar

Leave it for 15 minutes. Apples will release the juice, and the flour will make it more dense.

Step 3: Mix Walnuts With Bread Crumbs

Tip: You can use pecan nuts, almonds or any that you prefer.

Step 4: Layers

Roll the pastry if is necessary.

Use half of nut mix, and place the half of apple filling on top.

Step 5: Roll Up Dough and Pinch the Ends. Place Seam-side Down

Step 6: Cut Several Diagonal Slits Into the Top of the Pastry

Step 7: Brush the Pastry With the Egg

Step 8: Bake at 180ºC (350ºF) for 35-40 Minutes Until the Strudel Is Golden Brown

Step 9: Let the Strudel Cool for 20 Minutes and Serve With Ice Cream
