Today I will show you how to make a quick and tasty dessert, we will make an apple shortcrust pastry recipe, a delicious apple strudel. Because everyone likes apple cakes and because I had some shortcrust pastry in the fridge, I thought that this recipe would be ideal after a romantic dinner.

Although this shortcrust pastry is most often used for tarts and pies, it can just as well be rolled and filled with various fillings such as apples, cheese, nuts, poppy seeds or cinnamon sugar. Today I will fill them with grated apples that I will flavour with vanilla and cinnamon resulting in a kind of delicious apple strudel.

But first let me show you the few necessary ingredients.

Ingredients

Apple Shortcrust Pastry Recipe-Apples, Shortcrust Pastry and Sugar

For two rolls we need a larger package of shortcrust pastry, 550 g, or two smaller ones, which we leave for about 30 minutes at room temperature before using it.

For the filling we need 1.5 kg of red apples, as fragrant as possible, these are ideal for this type of dessert, and which we will grate. We will flavour the apples with the juice of a lemon, 50 g of sugar, a sachet of vanilla sugar and two teaspoons of ground cinnamon.

Preparing the Ingredients

As I said, we will take the shortcrust pastry out of the fridge and leave it at room temperature while we prepare the apples. For the beginning, we peel them and then put them on the large grater or if you want you can just cut them into small cubes.

Sprinkle them with lemon juice, which helps not to change colour and add the sugar, vanilla sugar and the two teaspoons of cinnamon.

The apples for the filling are ready, we can start baking.

How to Make the Apple Shortcrust Pastry Recipe

Remove the shortcrust pastry from the package and spread it on a work table sprinkled with wheat flour. Using a rolling pin, spread the pastry along, thinning it a little, then cut it in half, obtaining two rectangles the length of the baking tin.

Sprinkle the whole amount of breadcrumbs over the two pieces of pastry, as they have the property of absorbing apple juice, so the dough will bake more easily. Divide the grated apples in half and put them in half of the two pieces of dough. It is good to squeeze the juice before putting them on the dough.

Remove the tray from the oven and let it cool, then slice it. That is the apple shortcrust pastry recipe, simple but delicious, which can be served because I can’t wait to taste it.

Serving the Dessert

I like to serve them simply, after which I cut them into 2,5-3 cm (1-1.5 inch) slices and sprinkle them with powdered sugar. That’s it!

Of course if you want you can add a spoonful of vanilla ice cream, but I devoured it without it.
