Apple Strudel

We love all strudels and one of our favorites is the apple strudel: a flaky, puff pastry jacket enclosing the cinnamon-enhanced, crisp, tart, and aromatic apple filling. It's both light and satisfying with every bite, which is certainly a tough combination to achieve with most foods. Our apple strudel, sweetened with Stevien stevia, makes for a fabulous and healthy dessert.
