Flaky pastry, filled with ooey-gooey apple filling, and dusted with powdered sugar.
Sorry for the long hiatus. I was studying … I know…I think it’s lame too! Sophomore year and Intermediate Accounting have been busy kicking my butt, and I’ve been busy eating 4 packages of Oreos in a month. But I wanted to get a great Thanksgiving recipe up on my blog so homework is on hold at the moment! While this recipe is in no way American, it sort of reminds me of Apple pie so just go with it.
You made a huge Thanksgiving feast. Turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, cranberry sauce, green beans, corn…the whole shebang. And then you have 4 pies because it’s just too hard to choose just one or two. So much food and so many leftovers. Why don’t you spread out the yumminess across a few meals? I like to start Thanksgiving at breakfast with pumpkin bread (and skip pumpkin pie later), an Apple Cranberry Dutch Baby (and skip the apple pie later), or this delightfully awesome strudel (and skip the apple pie). Who says you can’t have dessert at breakfast?
But seriously this strudel is so flaky that you won’t miss your apple pie. And while strudel can be intimidating, this recipe is very manageable! We went to Eastern Europe this past summer which my dad calls the strudel tour because we seemed to eat nothing but strudel, strudel, and more strudel. In Budapest, there is a restaurant called the Strudl House where they roll out and fill the strudel in front of you. We got a piece straight out of the oven… so incredibly yummy. (more…)
