My Grandma’s Apple Strudel

My family has made this for a while and I love it. I lost the recipe and tried another kinda like it on a magazine site but it wasn’t the same. Finally got the recipe again from my family and wanna post it so I never lose it again… Hope you enjoy. Feel free to add your own pics and give feedback ūüôā This is my grandma’s recipe passed down & I am sorry I do not make it any other way because this is the way I like it. My father before he passed away would make this for me a lot! It brings back a lot of memories to me and I wouldn’t want to make it any other way…
