6 cups sliced tart apples
3/4 cup raisins
1 TBS grated lemon rind
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup almonds, ground
8 ounces filo pastry, 1/2 box,thawed
1 3/4 cups butter, melted, (no margarine)
1 cup finely crushed breadcrumbs

Mix apples with raisins, lemon rind, sugar, cinnamon, and almonds.

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.

NOTE: Frozen fillo leaves for strudel can be found at most supermarkets in the frozen foods sections.
