Caramel Apple Strudel Recipe

Publisher Photo
My father, who was born and raised in Vienna, Austria, would tell us stories about how his mother covered all of the kitchen counters with dough whenever she made apple strudel. This recipe is a modern, delicious way to carry on part of my family's heritage. —Sarah Haengel, Bowie, Maryland

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large saucepan, combine the first six ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 15-20 minutes or until apples are tender, stirring occasionally. Cool completely.
  2. Unfold puff pastry onto a large sheet of parchment paper; roll into a 16x12-in. rectangle. Transfer paper and pastry to a baking sheet, placing a short side of the rectangle facing you.

MY REVIEW

I will use less apple juice next time. Evidently I should not have included the juice when putting the apple on the bottom half of pastry. The juice ran out as I was rolling the pastry up. The crust also turned out rather gooey.

This is a delicious apple dessert. One little tip: Be sure to use Parchment Paper! The dough is very sticky!

Soooo gooood!!!! This recipe is a keeper. I prefer to put the caramel on top instead of inside. That way everyone can choose how much they want. I made a couple of these babies and put them in the freezer to pull out for the holidays.

while in the oven, the apple cinnamon smell is all over the house! I didn't have apple juice in the house so microwaved an apple with a little water and used that. I agree to only use about 2 T as it does get a little watery. very easy to make using the puff pastry
