Made of fresh apples, cinnamon and puff pastry this strudel is so easy to prepare and so delicious too.
1 pack (2 sheets) puff pastry
6 large Granny Smith apples
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
Heat the oven to 420F. Apples should be shredded and mixed with sugar and cinnamon. Unfold the pastry sheet on the work surface. Roll the pastry sheet into a 16 x 12-inch rectangle; cut in half; stretch each little bit more with your hands. Spread apricot jam over each pastry. With the short side facing you, spoon the apple mixture onto the bottom of the pastry sheet to within 1 inch of the edge. Bend the sides in and then roll up like a jelly roll. Place seam-side down onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown. Let the pastry cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack to cool. Sprinkle with the confectioners’ sugar, if desired.
