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.  

 

Optional: Brush with water on top of pastry braid. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.

 

Bake for 40 minutes or until golden.
