1hr 45mins
Ingredients
  • 2 sheets frozen puff pastry (use the 2 sheets from a 17.3-ounce box)
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 (21 ounce) cans apple pie filling
  • 1⁄4 cup raisins (optional)
  • confectioners' sugar
Directions
  • Set oven to 375 degrees.
  • Lightly grease a large baking sheet, or line with parchment paper.
  • Thaw the puff pastry sheet for 40 minutes at room temperature.
  • In a small bowl, mix the egg and water.
  • After 40 minutes, unfold the pastry sheet onto a lightly floured surface, with the short side facing you.
  • Spoon the apple mixture on the bottom half of the pastry to within 1-inch of the edges, then sprinkle with raisins (if using).
  • Starting at the short side, roll up like a jelly roll.
  • Place seam-side down on the baking sheet, then tuck ends under to seal.
  • Brush with the egg mixture.
  • Cut several 2-inch slits (2-inches apart) on top.
  • Repeat with the next puff pastry (if you are making two strudels).
  • Bake about 35 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Cool on baking sheet on a wire rack for about 30 minutes.
  • Slice and serve warm.
  • Sprinkle with confectioners sugar if desired.
