Apple Strudel Twists
It’s no surprise that I love apple recipes. I mean, I have a TON of apple recipes on my site. If you know me, you know I always have apples in my fruit basket and
But Strudel Twists?? This is my first recipe for those! I mean, I have Apple Cream Cheese Breakfast Pastries and Apple Hand Pies and Caramel Apple Pudding Cake but these strudel twists were a first.
I made them several times to get the recipe just right, and man. My kids loved every batch I made!
Which is the most popular type of strudel?
Though strudel varieties include other fruit fillings like cherry and apricot, apple strudel is by far the most popular.
Made from scratch strudel dough can be hard to replicate and very time consuming, so I decided to use puff pastry sheets instead of homemade dough to make this recipe easy and quick.
This version will save you some time in the kitchen snd give you more time to socialize when you make these for your next holiday party. 🙌🏻
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, and I always make an Apple Pie every year without fail! This year I am making this Apple Pie Strudel Twists recipe with the BakeGood™ Apple Pie Filling.
I love that it has no sugar added, so I can control just how sweet I want it to be. This is so useful so that I can change up the recipe depending on who will be eating it.
What’s the best way to make an apple strudel?
There are lots of ways to make Apple Strudel and Apple Strudel Twists. I love to go the easy route and buy some puff pastry sheets. This way I know for sure it will be a flaky, crispy, buttery exterior for the strudel.
Then I make sure to fill the strudel twists with the best possible filling – BakeGood™ Apple Pie Filling!
Have you tried their fillings before? They are incredible. They taste like a pie filling your mom or grandma made from scratch at home. They have chunks of fruit in them and are so delicious.
They come unsweetened and you can choose your sweetener (ie. maple syrup, stevia, erythritol, etc.). Use as little or as much sweetener as you like (they put the recommendations are on the package, which is awesome!)
BakeGood™ Apple Pie Fillings have no artificial preservatives, no added color, easy to make and are available only at Walmart for a great price.
How long do you cook apple strudel in the oven?
Since this isn’t a traditional strudel recipe, it doesn’t take as long to bake. This yummy apple strudel twist “breadstick” recipe only takes about 13 minutes to bake! The filling takes very little time to prepare because BakeGood™ Apple Filling is already ready to go.
