This rustic apple strudel is so easy to make and doesn’t need to look perfect because it’s too delicious!
Everyone loves my apple pie recipe but this rustic apple strudel is a close second. It’s easy to make but looks fancy, in a rustic way. The pastry dough is more like a biscuit recipe than true pie pastry recipe so the taste is so rich and delicious.
I’m excited to be taking part in Tastes of the Season Holiday Recipe Series hosted by my friend Kirstin of Ella Claire Inspired. Today is all about apple recipes and be sure to see all the wonderful apple recipes at the end of this post.
This apple strudel recipe doesn't use a traditional pastry, it's almost like a biscuit recipe wrapped around delicious cinnamon coated apples. Along with the glaze, this is just delicious!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1/4 cup butter, cold cut into chunks
- 2/3 cup whole milk
- 1 tbsp butter, softened
- 2 apples
- 2-3 tbsp sugar
- 1 tbsp cinnamon
- 1/2 cup icing (powdered) sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 2-3 tbsp milk
Preheat oven to 350 deg F and line baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix flour, baking powder and sugar together in a large bowl.
Cut in butter with a pastry blender.
Add milk and stir until just combined and form into a ball with your hands.
Flatten and shape into a rectangle onto a floured surface and roll out into a rectangle. Cut the excess dough off with a knife to make into a rectangle.
Spread 1 tablespoon of butter over dough.
Cut slits into dough on either side leaving space in the middle for the filling.
Peel, core and slice apples and coat with sugar and cinnamon.
Pour into centre of the dough.
Criss cross cut slits over the apple mixture.
Using 2 flippers, transfer strudel onto parchment and bake for 20-25 min until golden brown.
Mix icing sugar, vanilla and milk together.
Pour over strudel once cool.
