- 5 sheets phyllo dough
- 1/2 cup clarified margarine
- 1 cup fine bread crumbs
- 4 ounces golden raisins
- 1 ounce sugar
- 1/2 ounce ground cinnamon
- 4 ounces sliced almonds
- 6 ounces Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
- 1 small can apple pie filling
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place 1 layer of phyllo dough on a flat surface. Brush with the clarified margarine and sprinkle with about 2 tablespoons of bread crumbs. Top with another sheet of phyllo dough and repeat the process with the remaining sheets of phyllo dough.
In a mixing bowl combine the raisins, sugar, cinnamon, almonds, apples, and apple pie filling. Place the mixture in a log at 1 edge of the phyllo dough layers. Roll the phyllo dough around the mixture tightly and place on baking tray. Bake the strudel in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown in color. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. Then slice and serve.
