Apple Strudel

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 of a 17.3 oz. pkg. Pepperidge Farm® Frozen Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp. water
  • 2 tbsp. granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp. raisins
  • Confectioners’ sugar (optional)

Directions:

1. Thaw the pastry sheet at room temperature for 40 minutes or until it’s easy to handle. Heat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a baking sheet. Stir the egg and water in a small bowl. Mix the sugar, flour and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Add the apples and raisins and toss to coat.

2. Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the sheet into a
16×12-inch rectangle. With the short side facing you, spoon the apple mixture onto the bottom half of the pastry to within 1 inch of the edges. Starting at the short side closest to you, roll up like a jelly roll. Place seam-side down on the baking sheet. Tuck ends under to seal. Brush with the egg mixture. Cut several 2-inch long slits 2 inches apart on the top.

3. Bake for 35 minutes or until golden. Cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack for 30 minutes. Slice and serve warm. Sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar, if desired.
