Puff Pastry Apple Strudel

This apple strudel in my opinion is better than apple pie. I have always been the biggest lover of apples and any apple desserts. Puff pastry is buttery, flakey and absolutely heavenly. For this recipe you will need:

Ingredients
  

  • 4-5 apples I used golden and pink lady but you can use granny smith as well
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1.5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 sheet of 10 by 10 inch puff pastry
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons light brown sugar

Instructions
 

  • In a large skillet on the stove melt the butter. Once melted add the apples, sugar, and cinnamon and stir. Cook for 5-7 minutes until soft on medium heat.
  • The apples should have softened and have a bite to them, they should not be mushy. Add the flour and cook it off for a few seconds.
  • Transfer to a big bowl or spread onto a baking dish to cool fully. Apple filling must be fully cool.
  • When the apple filling is cool pre-heat oven to 400 F. You can also take out your puff pastry from the fridge. Lightly flour your surface and place the puff pastry sheet top.
  • Roll it out just an inch on each side. Transfer your puff pastry onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Pour out the cold apple filling in the middle and spread it out leaving just an inch on each side.
  • Fold the sides over and pinch the ends as well. Flip it over gently, cut a few slits with a knife and butter the top with a touch melted butter. Sprinkle on some sugar and bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden. Let it cool and enjoy.

Notes

You can use 1/2 the filling of this recipe or fill as much as you like. You can also use white sugar instead of light brown. Feel free to make mini apple strudels as well which would be perfect for individual portions. Please feel free to watch the video for this recipe so that it’s easier to follow along.
