It is the perfect time of year to enjoy apples in Ontario. They are delicious and very affordable right now!
John came home with a second bag of apples this week, when we haven’t eaten the first bag yet, so I thought it is a good time to do some baking! So I dug up our apple peeler…
A tablespoon of vanilla,
About 1/2 cup of brown sugar, and a cup of quick cook oats.
To make the crust, I cracked open a box of phyllo pastry. And on the first layer, I melted some butter and used a BBQ brush to spread it around
The final step before putting the strudel in the oven was to add a wash of egg over the top. Crack a couple eggs, and use the pastry brush to cover the tops of the strudel in a generous layer of egg. The wash, when cooked, makes the strudel shiny and golden brown.
I popped it in the oven at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes, then turned down the temperature to 325 degrees for another 10 minutes. Take a look at the final product!!
