  • 5 Granny Smith apples peeled, cored, thinly sliced
  • 2 sheets of puff pastry
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp apple pie spice
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar firmly packed
  • 1 tsp orange zest
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts or any nut you prefer


  • 3/4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract or orange extract



  • Preheat oven to 375F.
  • Melt butter over medium heat in a large saute pan.
  • Add the apple slices and cook until almost tender, 7-8 minutes.
  • Stir in the brown sugar, orange zest, and walnuts until the sugar has dissolved.
  • Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Unfold the puff pastry onto the parchment paper. Along each long side of the puff pastry, cut angled slits, one inch apart, to about half an inch from the fold mark.
  • Spread half of the apple mixture down the center. Fold the cut sides over the top in a criss-cross pattern, pinching the ends closed.
  • Repeat for the second strudel.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.


  • Combine powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla in a small bowl and whisk together until completely blended.
  • Drizzle over the top of the warm strudel.
