Austrian apple strudel.

My friend from Austria teach me Austrian classic recipe, the apple roll called strudel. Really very tasty and easy to make dessert.

For the dough.
300 gram of flour
125 ml of warm water
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
1 egg
1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
a pinch of salt
1 tablespoon full of sugar

For the filling:
7 apples
3 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons dried crust
0.5 cups of raisins
50 ml rum or brandy
cinnamon powder to taste

First, make the filling because we have to use it cooled.

Take the apples, clean it, and slice into cubes.
Take a raisins, pour rum or brandy and put for 30 seconds to the microwave.
In a deep pan melt down 1 tablespoon butter, add apples, sugar,
raisins with cognac, sprinkle with cinnamon.
Put the pan to strong fire for 5 minutes, and stir it a little.
At the end, add dried crust and leave it cooling.

The dried crust necessary for the absorption excess fluid that will be come from apples. Such way our dough not soak and we will have it crisped!

Now make the dough.
All products for the dough mix in the processors or by hands.
The dough should be soft and elastic.

Okay. Now divide the dough into two parts and use rolling pin to get dough flat.
We have to have two thin rectangles.

Carefully shift the dough parts, one by one, to clean towel,
carefully distributed the stuffing and use towels for making the rolls.

Well. The time for bake. Move both rolls to the baking tray, put to oven,
and bake with 200 C degree heat about 40-45 minutes.

After rolls become ready, sprinkle it with powdered sugar.

Guten Appetit! :)
