6 cups apples
tart, sliced
¾ cup raisins, seedless
1 tablespoon lemon zest
¾ cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
¾ cup almonds
8 ounces phyllo (filo) pastry sheets
1/2 box, thawed
1 ¾ cups butter
(no margarine), melted

Mix apples with raisins, lemon rind, sugar, cinnamon, and almonds.

Set aside. Place 1 phyllo sheet on a kitchen towel and brush witl melted butter.

Place a second sheet on top and brush with butter again.

Repeat until 5 sheets have been used, using about ½ cup of butter.

Cook and stir bread crumbs with ¼ cup of butter until lightly browned.

Sprinkle ¾ cup crumbs on the layered phyllo sheets.

Mound ½ of the filling in a 3-inch strip along the narrow end of the phyllo, leaving a 2-inch border.

Lift towel, using it to roll sheets over apples, jelly roll fashion.

Brush top of the strudel with butter and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of crumbs.

Repeat the entire procedure for the second strudel.

Bake the strudels at 400℉ (200℃) for 20 to 25 minutes, until browned.

These apple strudels were delicious. Love the texture of the baked phyllo pastries, it was so crispy.

I halved the recipe, and also had smaller sheets of phyllo pastries, so I divided the already halved filling into 3 portions, then made three small strudels.

Each strudel was made with 8 sheets of phyllo, I bushed the phyllo with olive oil instead of butter, and sprinkled some plain and dry bread crumbs instead of frying in the butter, which made these strudels a lot lighter but still taste delightful.

I had some plain and some with maple syrup, both were great. The leftovers can be kept in an air-tight container for a few days in the frige.

When you want to eat it, just put in a 325 degrees oven for about 20 minutes, then the phyllo will be crispy up again like freshly baked from the oven.
