Ingredients 

  • 4-5 apples, I used golden and pink lady but you can use granny smith as well
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1.5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 sheet of 10 by 10 inch puff pastry
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons light brown sugar

Instructions 

  • In a large skillet on the stove melt the butter. Once melted add the apples, sugar, and cinnamon and stir. Cook for 5-7 minutes until soft on medium heat.
  • The apples should have softened and have a bite to them, they should not be mushy. Add the flour and cook it off for a few seconds.
  • Transfer to a big bowl or spread onto a baking dish to cool fully. Apple filling must be fully cool.
  • When the apple filling is cool pre-heat oven to 400 F. You can also take out your puff pastry from the fridge. Lightly flour your surface and place the puff pastry sheet top.
  • Roll it out just an inch on each side. Transfer your puff pastry onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Pour out the cold apple filling in the middle and spread it out leaving just an inch on each side.
  • Fold the sides over and pinch the ends as well. Flip it over gently, cut a few slits with a knife and butter the top with a touch melted butter. Sprinkle on some sugar and bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden. Let it cool and enjoy.

Notes

You can use 1/2 the filling of this recipe or fill as much as you like. You can also use white sugar instead of light brown. Feel free to make mini apple strudels as well which would be perfect for individual portions. Please feel free to watch the video for this recipe so that it’s easier to follow along.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…

    1. Hi Albert! Check out step 4 of the recipe: “When the apple filling is cool pre-heat oven to 400 F.”
      Happy Baking!

  1. I watched the video twice and I am still not sure how to fold over the puff pastry. Just fold one side to the other ?

    1. Yep exactly. Fold it over to one side, pinch all the sides together, I then flip it and add some slits on the top.

  2. In your notes you add to watch a video. Where can I find this video I don’t seem to see a link anywhere?
