Ingredients:

6 cups apples tart -- sliced
3/4 cup almonds -- ground
3/4 cup raisins
8 ounces fillo leaves; 1/2 box -- thawed
1 tablespoon lemon rind -- grated
1 3/4 cups butter (no margarine), melted
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup bread crumbs -- finely crushed
2 teaspoons cinnamon
 

Preparation / Directions:

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 strudel. Bake the strudels at 400F for 20 to 25 minutes, until browned. Makes 2 strudels, 6 to 8 servings each. NOTE: Frozen fillo leaves for strudel can be found at most supermarkets in the frozen foods sections.
