Nothing starts a school day off better than a warm homemade apple strudel. Traditionally these are made with Phyllo pastry, but I love the simplicity of using puff pastry. In under 30 minutes you can go from concept to plate, making your mid week breakfasts a favorite all season long. I am using Stemilts world famous fruits in this recipe, their family run farm and commitment to sustainable farming makes this dish all the more delicious.

Ingredients

Puff pastry sheet 1
Fuji apple 2 , thinly sliced
Raisins 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Brown sugar 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)

5. On lined baking sheet, place and cut puff pastry sheet into 4-inch squares or any shape you like.
