Apple Strudel

And then there was Strudel.....

Apples (I like tarty - of-course)
Raisins (with my soaked raisins in brandy of 25 years)
Lemon if  you like on the apples to stop them from browning.  But honestly if you work fast and this is such a simple quick recipe you probably won't need the lemon juice.
Good mix with hands or spoon, coating of everything over everything.

Wrap in store bought phyllo sheets, I used 2 or 3 sheets only, ideally with butter brushed between each sheet.

Bake in 180oC for 30 mins or till crispy brown.
Take out of oven.
Cool slightly (if too hot the icing sugar and cream will not "behave" and just melt un-deliciously)

Serve with icing sugar and whipped cream (and any excess apple/raisins/cinnamon juice filling) pour over

Bake at 180  oC on middle shelf.
Till brown

Cool slightly,  before sprinkling generously icing sugar

Ready to serve

Yummy, afternoon tea.

Dollop of whipped cream. Evening sunset.  Cuppa tea...
Thank-you Life.

Note:  I LOVE store bought phyllo.  Yes, it is not like home made phyllo and for the same reason I don not make puff pastry - I can but choose not to.  Because...I have a life that is full on most of the time and a full family of kids and kids friends and spouse and more friends.  Open house and not plans who ever is around is welcome, so freezer is stocked ALWAYS for the unexpected but very welcomed guests.  Embracing the unknown both explores all boundaries, as well as discovering new challenges, triumphs and spectacular failures! 
If not with families and friends then who with?
Long live dessert!  ...especially Apple strudel ;)
