Apple Strudel

IMG_3696

My first attempt at making an apple strudel.
I have a cooking apple tree in my back garden, and although I love apple crumble I wanted to make something different with them.
I had some ready-made puff pastry in the fridge and it seemed only right to give a go at making strudel.
Most recipes use filo pastry, but this actually worked quite well, although I would like to give my next attempt a go with filo to see the difference.

Method
1. Slice the apples and place in a bowl with sugar, lemon juice, sultanas and cinnamon. Stir and leave to the juices to soak into the apples.
2. Lay out the puff pastry so that it is in a rectangular shape.
3. Place the apple mix down one side of the pastry, and fold over the other side to get a long oblong shape.
4. Brush the top with the remaining sugar/cinnamon mix.
5. Bake in the oven for about 30-35 mins at 180C or until golden brown and crispy.
6. Serve with cream or custard.
