This lovely little "cookie" strudel filled the house
with the most amazing aroma,
causing my granddaughters and daughter in law
What ARE you making?
With minimal ingredients this recipe gives a lot
in return for very little effort.
Flour, salt, butter and sour cream are mixed together
and left overnight to chill.
Rolled out paper thin, smeared with apricot jam,
pecans and dried currents, they are baked in
My first log was a bit sticky because I was conservative
with the flour.
The second log was easier to roll with more flour.
Half way through baking, the logs are brushed with
milk then sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar.
Once again the hardest part is waiting SIX hours for these
lovelies to cool. I didn't make an hour,
for the sake of picture taking, or some such excuse.
This really is a delightful pseudo~ strudel.
