Strudel is an Austrian-inspired layered pastry dessert but is widely enjoyed around the world in restaurants and at home. There is a specific method to preparing and baking the perfect strudel, and it begins with the right apple.
You’ll want to use Granny Smith apples for their tart flavor, which will balance the sweetness of the pastry. Piñata® apples by Stemilt are a great choice for a sweet-tart and slightly tropical mix, while Golden Delicious appeals to an even sweeter strudel.
- Give the strudel dough a thin coat of butter and sprinkle it with toasted ground hazelnuts for added flavor and texture.
