Amaretto Apple Strudel with Phyllo

As I saw this recipe I found that would be something that we all would love and the preparation seemed to be quick for me. Usually I make strudel-dough myself and the phyllo variation would be a way to prepare it when I have less time and in a hurry.
I took my phyllo and I shocked seeing that the sheets were broken (probably to long in the freezer) and rolling it would have been a real challenge. At this moment I asked the help to my husband, I placed the broken phyllo sheets on a silicon mat. I covered a rectangular cake mold with aluminium foil and I greased it. I placed some on the sheets pieces in the mold with overlapping pieces.
Carefully we rolled the strudel using the mat and we transferred it into the mold with the additional sheets. we folded the borders of the sheet over the strudel and brushed the surface with a mixture of water and melted margarine.
Finally we removed the strudel from the mold and foil…..wow! The strudel had been saved and result amazing! So delicious with the amaretto addition!
Thanks a lot Nancy for this awesome recipe we enjoyed it very much with some vanilla ice cream as suggested!

Amaretto Sour


I always have some Amaretto at home; not for drinking, since for preparing different kind of dessert and give the particular taste to sweets. I don’t drink pure Amaretto, as it is too sweet for me, but in this variation with the sour of the lemon everything changed and, oh WOW, this was good!

The mentioned quantities made two portions for us, which I decorated with candied cherries!


  • 3 ounces of Amaretto
  • 2 ounces simple syrup
  • 1/1/2 ounces lemon juice
  • Ice, as needed
