Simple Cinnamon-Raisin-Apple Strudel

Strudel—German for "whirlpool"—is known for its flaky layers of pastry folded around sweet apples. It is also known for being a difficult dessert to pull off. Here’s an easy version in which sheets of phyllo are wrapped around a not-too-sweet apple and raisin filling.

Instructions

  1. 1Heat the oven to 450°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. 2Place apples in a large bowl with raisins. Whisk together sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, and salt in a small bowl until combined. Sprinkle over apples and raisins and toss to evenly coat.
  3. 3Arrange a sheet of phyllo on a large, flat surface with the shorter side toward you. Brush with melted butter and arrange another sheet on top. Repeat, alternating butter and phyllo, until there are 6 layers, then brush the top layer with butter.
  4. 4Evenly arrange apple-raisin mixture on phyllo, leaving a 1-1/2-inch border at the top and sides. Begin to roll the phyllo away from you, folding in the sides as you roll. When you’ve rolled up the entire pastry, brush any exposed phyllo with butter.
  5. 5Place the strudel seam side down on the prepared baking sheet, brush again with butter (you may have a little left over), and cut 4 (1-inch) diagonal slits into the top just through the phyllo. Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  6. 6Reduce the heat to 350°F and bake until the apples are knife tender and the juices are bubbling, about 30 to 40 minutes more. Let cool at least 10 minutes before slicing.
