Beti’s Reflections

Looking for a dessert that will leave your taste buds in awe? You have to try out this amazing Apple Strudel Surprise! This recipe, inspired by my travels in Austria, is quite simple to make and requires only a handful of ingredients. I remember the first time I had this dessert while I was on holiday in Vienna. I was so impressed by the combination of flavors, and I knew I had to recreate it at home.

To start, preheat your oven to 375°F. Gently lay one sheet of puff pastry onto a floured surface. Brush the pastry with melted butter and sprinkle the almonds, sugar, cinnamon, and raisins on top. Spread the diced apples evenly over the pastry, then drizzle with fresh lemon juice. Place the second sheet of puff pastry over the top of the apples and use a fork to press the edges together to seal. Brush the top with melted butter and bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool before serving.

This Apple Strudel Surprise is perfect for any occasion, and it always manages to leave a lasting impression. I recently made this for a friend’s birthday party, and everyone loved it! We served it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, which complemented the flavors of the strudel perfectly. The combination of sweet and savory flavors and the flaky texture of the pastry makes this dessert a true showstopper.

So, what are you waiting for? Gather the ingredients, head to the kitchen, and whip up this delectable Apple Strudel Surprise!
