I have found a new calling life: rolling out pastry dough.
A week ago my sister got a KitchenAid Artisan 5-Quart Stand Mixer and she couldn’t wait to use it. She decided to make my grandmother’s apple strudel. She prepped the apple filling and made the pastry dough and let it sit in the fridge. I came over and rolled the dough out thinly (the first was almost too thin), we put the apple filling in, and rolled the pastry up.
A little while later, delicious strudel.
1/2 lb butter
2 cup flour
1 cup sour cream
Mix ingredients. Divide into 3 equal parts. Chill for several hrs. Roll thinly.
Preheat oven to 350F.
Add 1/3 filling to each rolled out piece dough and roll like a jelly roll for each piece of dough.
Bake for 45 to 60 min until golden brown.
1/4 cup butter
2 cups rolled oats (my sister’s variation, the original called for breadcrumbs)
4 cups thinly sliced apples
2 cups granulated sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts-optional (we opted in for 2/3 of the strudel)
Melt butter, add oats, and then other ingredients.
