NATIONAL APPLE STRUDEL DAY
On June 17th get whirled up in pastry dough, apples and spices and celebrate National Apple Strudel Day. In German, the word strudel means whirlpool or eddy. This tasty dessert is perfectly described by its German language as the sweet mixture of fruit, sugar, spices, and layers of thin dough rolled together and baked. The result is a bubbling, flaky treat.
As a breakfast item or dessert, apple strudel goes well with coffee and tea. Consider adding it to a brunch or bake ahead for guests. Often served at bakeries and coffee shops, strudel can also be a savory dish.
