"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 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 it!"

"Good recipe, but was easier made with pie dough instead of Phillo dough and liked it better with pie dough. Tasted great."

"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 is a really good, easy & healthier option for desert. Instead of sprinkling with powdered sugar, I sprinkled cinnamin & regular sugar on top."
