It’s not the classic strudel – in this version the dough is simpler. Nevertheless, this old recipe is amazing! The recipe is taken from http://www.fairiesandco.com/

  • Pinch of salt
  • White wine_1 tablespoon

In the morning I had two unexpected guests: one was chasing the other in hope to get some piece of food the latter was eating. I have an eternal love to squirrels, so immediately I gave them all my nuts and all the rest which in my understanding squirrels can eat (actually they could eat a lot and were slightly on a fat side). AsI had no camera I decided to post here a picture or a Vienna squirrel I met in the Schoenbrunn park.

1.     Mix flour, sugar, lemon zest, and salt. Add diced cold butter, and with knife (or in the food processor) cut the butter, until you get small crumbles. Add a yolk, mix fast, then add wine and milk, mix till smooth. Wrap into the food cling and place in the fridge for at least an hour.
2.     Cut apples in thin slices, add sugar, raising, grinded nuts, vanilla, cinnamon, rhum, and breadcrumbs.
3.     Roll out the dough into rectangle. Grease the edges with egg-white and the center – with raspberry jam. Put the filling on it, and roll into a strudel. Bake on 190C (380F) for 30 minutes.
