Apple Strudel with Shortcrust Pastry

This sweet and sour specialty is exceptionally popular with locals and guests alike. The apple strudel filling is made of apples, sultanas, sugar, breadcrumbs, natural flavors, pine nuts, other nuts or almonds and butter. Only South Tyrolean apples and South Tyrolean butter may be used in apple strudel with the seal of quality. All ingredients are natural. Preservatives and other additives are forbidden. Flavor enhancers may not be used either. South Tyrolean apple strudel contains only natural flavors and aromas.


Mix all the ingredients for the strudel pastry and knead into a dough. Peel the apples and slice thinly; mix with the other ingredients for the filling. Roll out the pastry, place the apple filling on it and fold the edges of the pastry over the filling. Brush with egg and bake for about 25-30 minutes in an oven preheated to 170 °C. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.

Wine recommendation: Moscato rosa.
