How to Make Caramel Apple Strudel
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large saucepan, combine the first 6 ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 15-20 minutes or until apples are tender, stirring occasionally.
Cool the apple mixture completely.
- Unfold puff pastry on a large sheet of parchment paper; roll into a 16x12 inch rectangle. Place a short side of the rectangle facing you.
Using a slotted spoon, arrange apples on bottom half of pastry to within 1 inch of edges.
Drizzle apples with caramel topping. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with the bottom side.
Pinch seams to seal and tuck ends under.
- In a small bowl, whisk egg with water; brush over pastry. Sprinkle with coarse sugar crystals.
Cut slits in top.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
If desired, serve with whipped cream and additional caramel topping.
