This Old World classic will make you feel like you took a cruise along a winding European river! Enjoy the classic tastes of German-style strudel with the shortcut of store-bought puff pastry, sliced apples, raisins and a few baking basics.

Serves: 6

Cooking Time: 20 min

 

What You'll Need:

1 sheet (from a 1.25-ounce package) frozen puff pastry, thawed

1/3 cup sugar

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 (20-ounce) can sliced apples, drained

1/3 cup raisins

1 egg, beaten

 

What To Do:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place pastry on a baking sheet and unfold. In a medium bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; mix well.

2. Reserve 2 teaspoons sugar mixture. Add apples and raisins to remaining mixture; mix well. Let sit about 2 minutes; drain off any excess liquid.

3. Spoon mixture down center of dough. Cut slits in dough 1 inch apart lengthwise down each side of filling. Brush each 1-inch dough strip with beaten egg and fold over dough. Brush top of pastry with remaining egg and sprinkle with reserved sugar mixture.

4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm, or allow to cool before serving.
