  • Set aside.
  • Place 1 fillo leaf on a kitchen towel and brush with melted butter.
  • Place a second leaf on top and brush with butter again.
  • Repeat until 5 leaves have been used, using about 1/2 c of butter.
  • Cook and stir bread crumbs with 1/4 c of butter until lightly browned.
  • Sprinkle 3/4 cup crumbs on the layered fillo leaves.
  • Mound 1/2 of the filling in a 3-inch strip along the narrow end of the fillo, leaving a 2-inch border.
  • Lift towel, using it to roll leaves over apples, jelly roll fashion.
  • Brush top of the strudel with butter and sprinkle with 2 T crumbs.
  • Repeat the entire procedure for the second strudle.
  • Bake the strudels at 400ºF for 20 to 25 minutes, until browned.
