Braided Apple Honey Strudel
From Yehudis Wolvovsky
3 Apples peeled and chopped
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon flour
1 sheet puff pastry dough
1/2 cup coarse sugar (optional)
Spread puff pastry sheet on parchment paper. Cut ten approximately 1 inch diagonal slits in each side of puff pastry sheet, leaving center uncut for filling.
Fill pastry with apple pie filling down center of dough, leaving 1½ inches uncovered at top and bottom ends.
Braid strips at a slight angle, starting from the top, alternating sides. Press each strip firmly to seal.

Bake for 40 minutes or until golden.
