  • 6 apples, peeled, cored, sliced

  • 3/4 to 1 cup walnuts, toasted, chopped medium fine, optional
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 ounce butter, melted
  • 8 -10 strudel filo leaves
  • as needed additional butter, for between filo leaves
  • as needed additional sugar or fine cookie crumb may be used instead of sugar


Combine apples, walnuts, if using,  sugar, spices and butter. Lay out strudel leaves and butter each layer, sprinkle with sugar or cookie crumbs, between layers and repeat with 7 more layers. Add apple mixture on long side of dough, about 3 inches from edge of filo dough. Roll into a long cylinder without tearing dough.
