Hungarian Apple Strudel (Almasretes)
Yield: 6 servings

1 package filo dough
1 1/2 Sticks butter, melted
2 lbs apples, peeled, cored, and sliced thin
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup sugar
1 cup toasted breadcrumbs

Mix apples with crumbs (crumbs help to keep juice in strudel instead
of flooding pan). Mix sugar and cinnamon in a dish. Lay out clean
towel and put sheets of buttered Filo dough on top. Place apples
on prepared filo layers that have been brushed with butter. Start
spreading apples about 3 inches from the edge closest to you (you
need a clean area so you can get it in the pan. Completly cover
the rest of the filo dough with apples. Sprinkle cinnimon and
sugar mix over the apples. Now take the edge of the towel near you
and slowly start to make a big roll by pulling up and towards you.
This is not as hard as it sounds. As you are rolling it you can
roll it right into a greased pan. Then tuck the ends of the strudel
underneath itself. Brush top with more butter and bake at 350
degrees for about 1 hour. Brush every 20 min. with butter. Strudel
is done when it looks like it has collapsed. Cool and cut into
slices and dust with powderd sugar.

You can vary the filling by adding chopped walnuts, or raisins. If
you add raisins you must first soften them in hot water and then
dry them before using. I prefer using just apples.

When you lay out the filo sheets you will want to have at least 4
or 6 layers buttered one on top of the other. You will have enough
sheets to make several strudels so buy at least 4 or 5 lbs of
apples. It is not really a lot of work and you will have a wonderful
