German Apple Strudel

61
4
2 1/4 lb apples
2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
4 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
grated rind of 1 lemon
1 1/4 lb package of frozen phyllo, thawed
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350° F. Slice or chop the apples and put into a bowl. Add breadcrumbs, 4 tbsp melted butter, sugar, cinnamon, raisins (if using), and grated lemon rind and stir together. On a damp towel, lay two sheets of phyllo dough, and brush with melted butter. Place another 1 to 2 sheets on top and brush with butter. Continue until you have about 4 or 5 layers. Put the apple mixture down the center of the pastry, leaving a 1-inch border around the outside. Fold in the short sides and then roll up like a jelly roll. Put strudel on a greased baking sheet with the seam side down. Brush with remaining melted butter. Cut 1/4 inch deep slashes across diagonally across top. Bake for 30 - 40 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool before sprinkling with powdered sugar and serving.
