Among apple desserts, strudel is one of those with the most fascinating history.
Worthy heir to the Turkish baklava, over the centuries it has been "adopted" by the European confectionery tradition and has established itself as one of the dessert symbols of Trentino Alto Adige.
Here we propose the classic recipe, making it easy and fun for you to make the perfect apple strudel at home.
We suggest you eat your apple strudel as quickly as possible after you cooked it, as the filling might make your cake soggy if you leave it sitting there for too long. That being said, trust us when we say that there will very rarely be any leftovers of your apple strudel!

for 6 servings
Preheat oven to 350F.
Place raisins in a small cup halfway filled with room temperature water. Allow to soak for 30 minutes.
Peel the apples and dice into .5" cubes.
Place in large mixing bowl, and pour juice squeezed from 1/2 lemon (with seeds removed) on top of apples to prevent browning.
Add sugar cinnamon, drained raisins and pine nuts to the apples and mix well.
On top of a sheet of wax paper, place very thin sheet of dough (it should be approximately .25" thick) shaped into a rectangular form.
Place wax paper and dough directly onto rectangular (jelly roll) baking sheet. In the middle of the dough, place the apple mixture.
Spread mix out well, from side to side.
Wrap up dough, moving from top to bottom. (Roll up like a jelly roll cake).
Melt butter in microwave or over stove in small pan. Using a pastry brush, brush butter onto the top of the rolled dough.
Make several vertical cuts onto the top of the dough, and place in preheated oven. Bake for 20 minutes, until golden brown on top and fragrant.
Once removed from oven, allow to cool. Cut into slanted slices and dust with powdered sugar (you can use a tea strainer to dust on top of dough).

A blast from the past
Is it only me, or were apple Strudels popular in the 90s and had disappeared for some while? I absolutely adore apple strudel, so I'm so happy to be able to make it at home for my family!
