Apple Strudel

I baked this this morning - it's an old favorite of my family - delicious!

Apple Strudel Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • FILLING:
  • 2 cups dry bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 4 medium baking apples, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Confectioners' sugar, optional

Directions

  • In a large bowl, cut butter into flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in sour cream and salt. Shape the dough into a ball; cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • For filling, combine bread crumbs and butter. Add the apples, sugar, raisins, pecans and cinnamon, set aside. Divide dough into thirds; turn onto a floured surface. Roll each into a 15-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Spoon filling evenly onto dough; spread to within 1 in. of edges. Roll up from one long side; pinch seams and ends to seal.
  • Carefully place each loaf seam side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 350° for 55-60 minutes or until light brown. Cool completely on wire racks. Dust with confectioners' sugar if desired. Yield: 3 loaves.

Intense Debate Comments

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
