Puff Pastry Apple Strudel

  •  I know I am currently posting a lot of recipes with puff pastry.  It's easily found in the freezer department of most grocery stores and creates such a light pastry.  Today I tried it with an apple strudel recipe offered on Pepperidge Farm's recipe page.  It doesn't take a lot of ingredients or time to make and creates one lovely strudel.
    1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 large Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced (keep Granny Smiths on hand- they are great for both baking and eating)
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 1/2 of a 17.3-ounce package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets (1 sheet), thawed
    Beat the egg and water together in a small bowl.  In a medium size bowl, combine the sugar, flour and cinnamon.  Add the apples and mix well.  Put several tablespoons of flour onto a counter top and place one sheet of the dough on to of the flour.  Roll out to about 16" x 20".  Dump the apple mixture onto the bottom half of th dough.  

    Then roll the dough into a log.  Place on a baking sheet.  Tuck the end under and make sure your seam is on the bottom.

      Brush with the egg mixture.  Cut 4 slashes into the top of the dough.  Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes.  When cool dust with confectionary sugar if desired.
