Make a Delicious Apple Strudel

Apple strudel is a classic dessert of Eastern Europe that's savored by many Ely area residents. The word strudel refers to the effect of rolling up of a generous fruit filling in a paper-thin unleavened crust. Learn how to mix, knead, and pull genuine strudel dough the old fashioned way! Sure, store-bought phyllo dough offers a quick short cut, but handcrafted dough results in a delicate and buttery pastry -- the real deal. After pulling the dough, we will fold it with grated or sliced apples, sugar, cinnamon, and butter and then bake to perfection. Each student will take home a generous piece. Dessert is served!
