Very Quick Apple Strudel
The other night I made a crock pot chicken recipe I found at Coleen's site. Crock pot cooking is new for me. Don't think I've ever owned one and just before Christmas I was in Walmart and they were one sale so I thought what the hey! The recipe was good and really no fuss. I seem to be rambling so back to the apple strudel. I wanted to have a dessert with this meal that was just as easy, and this was it.
5 Jonathan apples cored and sliced
2 Tbl butter
1/2 tsp salt
juice from 1/2 small lemon
1/4 cup brown sugar (packed)
2 TBL cinnamon
1/4 cup fine chopped pecans
1/3 white wine
I sheet puff pastry defrosted
Melt butter in a skillet and add apples, sprinkle brown sugar, cinnamon and salt over apples, stir so apples are coated, cook for about 4-5 minutes. Add wine and reduce and cook until apples are tender. *my apples were tart so I added a bit more sugar to my liking.
Roll out the dough to a good size rectangle put filling on dough and spread to about 1 inch from all sides, top with nuts. From short side start rolling dough like a jelly roll. Seal ends and cut slits in top for steam to escape. Bake at 400 for about 20-25 minutes until crust is golden brown. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top and serve.
*I think this would be good with some raisins added too.
I think you could put any type of filling you wanted in this and it would be just yummy.
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day and Remember to Find the Time to do ALL the thing YOU love.
