This year a neighbor invited my wife and I to a New Years celebration. We decided that I should make apple pastries for the event. I call it apple strudel, but I suppose that there are strudel purists in the world who would take exception to that title. It is basically butter, flour, and yeast surrounding apples, raisins, butter, cinnamon, and sugar all under a layer of sugar. And it is good.
I usually only make this at Christmas and New Years, so I thought it might be a good choice for my first picture of the new year.
