  • 3 apples
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Filo dough
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted


  • In a small mixing bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Peel, core and slice apples and place in large mixing bowl. Toss apple slices with lemon juice.
  • Add sugar and cinnamon mixture to apples. Toss to coat evenly.
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper. Layer 5 to sheets of the Filo dough, lightly brushing with melted butter between each layer.
  • Mound up apple slices in a row approximately 4 inches from edge. Use the parchment paper to roll the Filo dough over the apples. Repeat for the other side. Brush a little melted butter on the seam and remove parchment paper. Set the strudel on the baking sheet, seam side down.  
  • Bake at 350° for 40 minutes, until it just starts to turn golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and cool on wire rack for at least 10minutes. Serve warm with a generous dollop of whipped cream.
