Macedonian strudla

Well, this is likely not the real thing, but my husband claims it tasted close enough. I thought this was delicious, and rather easy to make.

250g flour
2 tbsp oil
1 tbsp butter
4 apples
ground walnuts (optional)
0.25 cup ground animal crackers

Mix the flour with a pinch of salt and add water until it comes together into an elastic dough. Cut into two pieces and coat with oil. Set aside, covered on an oiled surface for 10-15 minutes. The drier the dough, the flakier the final pasty, but the harder it is to stretch it out.

Peel and core the apples, shred or cut into thin slices. Mix with sugar and set aside for 5 minutes. Squeeze out some of the juice. Toss the apple with sugar, cinnamon and ground walnuts. Use sugar to taste.

Stretch out the dough starting from the middle. Sprinkle with the cookie crumbs and apple filling. Roll up and brush it with butter, dust the top with sugar and cinnamon. Bake at 400F.

Serve with shipped cream of vanilla ice cream.
