  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 4 Fuji or Gala apples
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted

Apple Roses
  • 1 – 2 Fuji or Gala apples

Let's get started!

  1. Whisk flour, salt and cinnamon in a medium bowl.
  2. Drizzle in oil and water and mix with a spoon until a dough starts to form.
  3. Knead for 8 to 10 minutes or until the dough is soft and supple.
  4. Place in a bowl cover with a towel. Let dough rest for 30 minutes.
  5. Peel and chop apples and then mix them with lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Let the mixture stand to release some of the moisture.
  6. Microwave raisins and water for 30 seconds to plump and then add them to the apple mixture.
  7. When the dough is ready, roll it out using a rolling pin to about the size of a sheet paper, then begin to slowly stretch it thin (PICTURE at 5:25).

Time to decorate!

  1. Preheat oven to 425ºF.
  2. Trim off the ends of one side of the dough to create ribbons. Braid the ribbons together to make 3 small braids.
  3. Brush the dough with melted butter and sprinkle with chopped pecans.
  4. Using a slotted spoon, scoop out the apples and place them along the side of the strudel dough.
  5. Roll the dough around the apples and place onto a baking sheet.
  6. Brush the strudel with remaining butter and attach the braid, brushing the braid with butter as well (PICTURE at 7:12).
  7. Bake at 425°F for 20 minutes and then 350°F for another 30 minutes.
  8. Cool and top with powdered sugar.
  9. Cut the remaining apples into thin slices with a rounded edge, leaving the skin on the apple.
  10. Microwave the apple slices in water and a little lemon juice for 3 minutes.
  11. Make apple flowers by shingling the slices and rolling them into a flower (PICTURE at 8:18).
  12. Place the flowers on top of the strudel and serve.
