Grandma Lucille's Apple Strudel

Dough (makes 2 strudels):

3C flour
½ tsp salt
1 egg
2 tbsp melted butter
3/4C tepid water
1 tsp vinegar

Sift dry ingredients. Make well in flour and add rest of ingredients. Mix well. Form into 2 balls and place into greased bowls. Let rest at least 1 hour in a warm place.

Filling (for one strudel):

8-9 apples, sliced thin and mixed with next 2 ingredients
1C sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 stick melted butter
6 tbsp bread crumbs browned in 1/3C butter


Roll dough to 18” circle on floured cloth. Spread with half of melted butter and let rest 10 minutes. Stretch dough thin. Cut off thick edges. Spread rest of butter on dough. Put buttered crumbs over middle 1/3 of stretched out dough. Cover with apple mixture. Fold dough over apple mixture into a roll-up and place on greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour; or until lightly browned and crisp. (Strudel crust will soften up as cooked apples are absorbed)
