At harvest time – or any time – nothing beats a classic apple strudel. Enjoy this with a steaming cup of tea or coffee.
NOTE: Use your professional judgement when resizing recipes. Seasoning, cooking times, etc, may require adjustment.
|1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Line baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.|
|2. Toss apples with sugar, flour and cinnamon in a large bowl. Let stand for 20 minutes.|
|3. In another bowl, stir together walnuts and brown sugar. Set aside.|
|4. Place pastry on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle walnut mixture along long edge, leaving a 1-inch (2.5 cm) border. Scrape apple mixture over top of walnut mixture. Starting with border closest to you, lift pastry up and over apple mixture, rolling to cover completely. Place seam side down on pan; pinch ends to seal and tuck under strudel.|
|5. Whisk egg with water; brush over top of strudel. With a small, sharp knife, cut 3 or 4 slits in the top of the strudel to allow steam to escape.|
|6. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.|
