linda's notes for this recipe:
They sold this strudel at a Jewish-Italian Deli that I worked at while going to college. When they closed in the mid 80's, I tried creating a similar version of this deli favorite.

Directions

1
With pastry blender, cut margarine and flour. Add sour cream and egg yolk. Form soft dough. Divide into two balls. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight.
2
Take dough out of refrigerator. Let sit a little to soften. It will still be very stiff. Roll out each dough very thin and into oblong shape. (I roll out between floured wax paper). NOTE: This will be making TWO strudels.
3
Mix all of filling ingredients together. Spread filling on dough coming to about an inch from the edge of the dough. Carefully roll into a jelly roll. Repeat with second dough ball.
4
Place both jelly rolls on parchment lined cookie sheet. Cut slits in dough at 1" intervals. Brush tops with egg whites. Bake in 350 oven for 40 minutes.
5
Remove from oven. Cool on pan. Make a thin confectioners glaze and drizzle over strudel. Slice and serve.
