Everyday life is the special occasion!

November 26, 2014


Now that we are practically a month away from Christmas, my favourite time of the year in what concerns celebrations, the scent of spicies flooding my kitchen really sets me into the mood. The holidays are just around the corner and my heart jumps with joy. This apfelstrudel dessert has the sense of Christmas at every bite. The sweet golden raisins, the acidic apples, the perfect marriage of cinammon and light brown sugar, the lightly sweet flavour of the nuts and its crunchiness - all together make it a tasty , so appetizing and mouth-watering treat! Serve it freshly baked, dusted with icing sugar, with a ball of vanilla ice cream or a good cup of coffee and you will win your guests heart in a blink!

  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • yellow grape raisins
  • nuts
  • three apples
  • 1 lemmon
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • cinammon

  • milk to brush the puff pastry


  1. Bem, isto dá cá um trabalhão a fazer!!! A minha irmã é que era a perita do apfelstrudel, eu nem me atrevo, mas sempre que ela fazia tinha de esconder de mim, caso contrário eu despachava aquilo em três dentadas!!! Olha lá se esse me chegava ás mãos, aha!!

  2. Mas que maravilha, o interior está mesmo fantástico!

  3. Oh my Aida, Im watering! Looks so tasty, sweet and delectable! Id love to eat right now, is perfect for holidays! Its also my fav time of the year and Im thrilled too, I only imagine all the sweet treats you are going to prepare!:) Hugs! xo

  4. Looks easy, if one doesn't make the pastry from scratch. I've never bought puff pastry at the store, but I think you're right - this will win my guests' hearts! And my husband will love it. Happy Thanksgiving, and I'm thankful for YOU.
