How to Make Caramel Apple Strudel


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
