Mini Apple Strudels Recipe

Crisp sheets of phyllo dough surround tender slices of apple in this clever play on strudel. Walnuts and cinnamon enhance that traditional apple pie flavor. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups chopped peeled tart apples
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
  • Butter-flavored cooking spray
  • Confectioners' sugar, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the apples, sugar, walnuts, flour and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • 2. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface (keep remaining dough covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out). Spray with butter-flavored spray.
  • 3. Fold in half widthwise; spray again with butter-flavored spray. Spoon a scant 1/3 cup filling onto phyllo about 2 in. from a short side. Fold side and edges over filling and roll up. Place seam side down on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Repeat.
  • 4. With a sharp knife, cut diagonal slits in tops of strudels. Spray strudels with butter-flavored spray. Bake at 350° for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar if desired. Yield: 6 servings.

"These Apple Strudels have been a huge hit! I used Splenda instead of sugar and pecans instead of walnuts both times I've made this recipe. They are so easy to make. I melted butter the first time, but used spray the second...so much easier/faster! The second time I had leftovers and froze them...enjoyed them 2 weeks later and they were as good as the fresh strudels...couldn't tell the difference. This means I can make them in advance of having guests and enjoy a tasty treat with no prep work during their visit...love it!"

"For PENKAT try again but be sure your oven is really at full baking temperature and that you set the pan on the LOWEST rack in the oven. This will insure that the bottom bakes first and that the crust is not soggy. Use this same technique for any pie or crispy pastie you bake."

"I'm from Germany and on year I visited Salzburg. In a restaurant I had a chance to ordered Strudel with Vanilla sauce. The Strudel was just swimming in the sauce. It also was so filling that I could had it for a whole meal. All I can tell you, it was yummy, yummy!!!"

"This was very good. I used spray butter instead of cooking spray. I didn't think cooking spray would taste very good. Next time I will probably brush on melted butter to make it even better even though it would add to the calorie count. Since I was cooking for 10 people I used about 3/4 of the box of phyllo dough and didn't really measure the rest of the ingredients. I omitted the confectioner's sugar. It would be great with ice cream or drizzled with an icing made with confectioner's sugar and milk."

"My grandmother made these for us with leftover strudel dough in Germany during fall harvest season, and I have made these for many years for my Boy's. I used brown sugar like she did ( we didn't have white sugar then) and raisins instead of nuts. I brushed the top with egg wash and sprinkled brown sugar on, or just the powdered sugar. We called them Kinderschtrudele (Childrenstrudel). The are also great with fresh or canned peach or pear slices."

I let the apple mixture sit for about 20 minutes, stirring on occasion to blend the flavour of sugars and cinnamon with the apples. Phyllo dough a llittle tricky to work with. Ensure they are completely cooled. All in all a good recipe"
