Apple Strudel: A Fall Favorite

Fall always changes my appetite.   I leave the taste for fruit salads behind and long for more comfort foods. One of my favorites is Apple Strudel.  This year I wanted to add a healthy touch to the pastry and substituted 1/2 cup regular flour with a 1/2 cup of flax seed flour to add in some Omega 3 to the mix.  As you can see below in the picture, the flax seed changed the color of the pastry a tad.  But don't worry, it only enhanced the flavor.

1/2 cup regular flour

1/2 cup flax seed flour
3 large apples, chopped
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 brown sugar
1 stick margarine
1 1/2 cup water
1 tsp cinnamon

Get to Mixin'!
Make a pastry out of 1/2 cup of regular flour & 1/2 cup of flax seed flour, 1/2 stick of margarine, and a tablespoon of water (Adjust if necessary).  Roll pastry up with apples in side like a jelly roll.  Cut in 1 inch slices, sugar and spice.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

If you happen to get in the cooking mood, give this a shot.  I promise you won't regret it.  Serve with a scoop of ice cream and your taste buds will jump for joy!
