Mixed Fruit Strudel
Servings: 8 Prep 20 mins Bake 375°F 40 mins Stand 10 mins Microwave 30 seconds

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chopped mixed dried fruit
  • 1/4 cup brandy or apple juice
  • 2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1 Bartlett pear, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 10 sheets phyllo dough
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar

Make It

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, combine mixed fruit and brandy or juice; microwave 30 seconds. Let stand 10 minutes.

2. In a large bowl, combine apples, pear, flour, lemon zest, cinnamon and dried fruit with any remaining liquid.

3. Unroll phyllo; cover with damp towel. Lay out one sheet and brush lightly with some of the butter. Place another sheet on top; brush with butter. Repeat layering eight more times.

4. Spoon fruit mixture on long side of phyllo, 3 inches from edge, leaving 1 inch at either end. Fold both short ends over filling. Fold 3-inch-wide long strip over filling; roll up to enclose filling. Place, seam-side down, on rimmed baking sheet. Make eight slits in top. Brush strudel with butter.

5. Bake at 375 degrees F for 40 minutes, until nicely browned. Let cool on wire rack. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

Tip

  • Keep strudel from splitting by rolling as you would a burrito and baking seam-side down.
