  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed according to directions on box

Instructions

  1. Position an oven rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F.

    In a lg. bowl, toss the sliced apples with the Black Currants until the apples are all strained. Add 1/4 cup sugar, and the 2 tablespoons cold cubed butter and toss well. Set aside.

  2. Lightly dust the work surface with flour. Lay the puff pastry on top and dust the rolling pin with additional flour. Gently roll the puff pastry to 1/8-inch thickness.

  3. Position the sheet of puff pastry on a parchment lined baking sheet.

  4. Sprinkle the Quaker Old Fashioned Oats on half of the pastry to absorb the juices

  5. Spread the Black Currant and apple mixture on top of the oats leaving about 1-inch of space along the side edges.

  6. Brush some of the melted butter along the 1” edge of the pastry to help seal.

  7. Fold the other half over the mix and pinch to seal the edges together tightly.

  8. Brush the entire strudel with the melted butter.

  9. Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons of cinnamon and remaining sugar.

  10. Using a sharp knife, make 3 diagonal slits across the top of the strudel.

  11. Remove from the baking sheet with 2 spatulas and cool on a cooling rack over paper towels to catch any drippings.

  12. Serve warm or room temperature with vanilla ice cream.
