About this Recipe
Resting fruit with apple juice makes the fruit flavor more intense and reduces the use of sugar. Depending on the season, you can use, in addition to apples, plums, raspberries, apricots and other fruit you like.
The toasted breadcrumbs needs to dry the fruit filling a little, which during cooking naturally tends to become more moist: in this way the dough will remain beautifully crisp.
The real strudel dough is not a puff pastry, that is, it is not made of layers of flour dough and water and butter, but in any case it is always composed of flour and butter. Its main feature is that it is very elastic, in fact it should be spread gently by widening it gradually with the knuckles of the fingers.
