I had a couple of apples about to turn and needed to use them. Peaches, blueberries and plums are cluttering my counter, along with corn and tomatoes, so the chances the apples were going to be eaten anytime soon, were slim.
I hadn’t done a strudel in a long time and the recipe seemed simple enough, so here we are. I made two small dishes, so I could freeze one. Each little casserole dish held half the recipe.
- 2 1/2 cup sifted flour
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tbsp. sugar
- 1/2 c. butter, melted
- 3 tsp. boiling water
8×8 baking dish, well-greased
Stir dry ingredients; mix water with butter and add to dry ingredients. Knead well.
Divide dough into 5 parts. Roll each part very thin between wax paper.
In the baking dish, layer dough & filling, ending with dough. Bake in 400° F oven for 30 minutes. Remove, cool and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
- 2 tsp. Cinnamon
- 1/4 c. chopped walnuts
- ¼ cup raisins (optional)
- 1/2 c. sugar
- 2 apples, chopped finely
Mix together and spread between layers
After turning on the news briefly this morning, I have been offline the rest of the day. Plan on keeping it that way. I will tell you that the state Democratic Party contacted me yesterday and asked me if I would be interested in running for an office. After I stopped laughing, I told them probably not, but sign me up for voter registration and get out the vote efforts.
Respite open thread.
