This is one of my favorite recipes during autumn. The aroma of this dessert baking on a cool, crisp day is absolutely wonderful.

MY REVIEW

I have made many strudels and this one is the best! I also used splenda to make it for my diabetic husband and it was also really good. I did freeze some as my apples were near their end. It was good when defrosted but the apples were a little soggy. That could probably be solved by heating it up a bit.

undecided if i'd make again...too much filling for the amount of dough. need to have a fair amount of flour on surface, if not dough sticks and you are unaware until you start rolling up. Dough split open during baking. I had about 2 cups of leftover filling that was tossed. wasteful.

My husband (& everyone else) loved it!! The recipe makes a very generous amount and next time I plan to split the dough in quarters and use walnuts. Definitely will continue to enjoy this pleasant blend of comforting flavors and aromas again!

I made this for my book club and it was so good any leftovers I had my son took care of before I even had a chance to put away. Thanks for such an awsome recipe!!!

This is a wonderful recipe, but I sometimes have issues with the dough tearing during the baking cycle.

The aroma of while it's baking is out of this world, and every time I take it somewhere it is gone almost immediately.
