Easy Apple Strudel is made with only six ingredients and comes together in no time. Apples are cooked down with sugar and cinnamon and wrapped up in puff pastry, brushed with an egg wash and topped with sanding sugar. Then its baked to perfect for a puffy, light and tasty apple dessert.

I feel like apple strudel is such an undermade apple dessert. It takes barely any time at all to make, looks absolutely gorgeous and tastes great. More apple strudel must be made! Right?
WHAT IS AN APPLE STRUDEL?
Apple Strudel is a oblong pastry with a sweet apple filling baking inside. The filling can be completely sealed in the dough, braided, or with overlapping strips.

WHAT ARE ENVY APPLES?
Some of the best apples ever. No, but seriously, if you can find Envy Apples in your area, I highly recommend that you do so. They’re sweet, crisp and the flesh doesn’t turn brown as soon as you cut into them. Envy Apples are great for snacking or baking. Envy very generously provided the bloggers of #AppleWeek with a bunch of their delicious apples for us to use. I only used half of them for the recipes and I’ve been enjoying the remainder as my mid-afternoon snack each day.
Easy Apple Strudel #AppleWeek
- 1 box puff pastry thawed
- 3 medium Envy Apples peeled, cored and thinly sliced
- ¼ cup sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup sanding sugar optional
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Combine apples, sugar and cinnamon together in a medium bowl, tossing to coat. Set aside.
- Unfold one sheet of puff pastry and place it onto the prepared baking sheet. Roll it out to a 12x16 rectangle. On the long ends, use a sharp knife to cut in 2 inches from either end, creating strips that you can fold up.
- Repeat with the other sheet of puff pastry.
- Layer half of the apple mixture down the center of the puff pastry and fold in the strips, alternating sides to create a braided look. Repeat with the remaining apples and sheet of puff pastry.
- Lightly beat the egg in a small bowl and brush on top of both puff pastry braids.
- Sprinkle the sanding sugar on top of both braids.
- Bake for 18-20 minutes or until lightly golden.
- Cool slightly on the baking sheet before cutting into 4-6 pieces per braid.
