Heidi's notes for this recipe:
My family has made this for awhile and I love it... I lost the recipe and tried another kinda like it on a magazine site but it wasn't the same... finally got the recipe again from my family and wanna post it so I never loose it again... Hope you enjoy... Feel free to add your own pics and give feedback :) This is my Grandma's recipe passed down & I am sorry I do not make it any other way because this is the way I like it. My father before he passed away would make this for me a lot! It bring's back a lot of memories to me and I wouldn't want to make it any other way....

Scrummy strudel in a snap! We love both the technique and flavor found in this sweet recipe. Brew up some coffee and enjoy!


Mix apple slices, sugar, 1/2 cup flour and 1 tsp cinnamon for the filling. Set aside.
Mix the remaining ingredients as pie crust, reserve 1 egg white. Divide dough in two pieces. Roll out 1/2 of the dough to fit a 10x15 inch jelly roll pan with sides.
Cover with apple mixture. Roll out top crust. Cover with top crust. Brush top with egg white. Slit crust. Bake at 350 for 45-60 min.
Mix 1 cup powdered sugar and 1/2 tsp vanilla with enough cream or milk to make thin frosting. Mix well and spread over hot crust.

Printed AND saved!! Thank you so much for posting, this looks exactly like the "apple squares" a lady I used to know used to make. I asked her once for the recipe, but she wouldn't give it to me. :( (I don't like people that do that.)

Will do! When my hubby is done with his business trips for the year, I'm going to make a nice big pan of them for him to take to the office....stashing a few for us at home! ;)
