Apple Strudel

We made the apple strudel with the phyllo dough. Up until now, I have never seen the unbaked phyllo dough sheets. It turns out that these fragile things (aka..phyllo dough) are very thinly fragile sheets of dough made out of water, flour and salt. We took layered 5 of those phyllo dough sheets with butter and sugar. Then we added the apple filling, which comprises of 1 inch peeled, cored and diced apple pieces sauted in melted butter, sugar and cinnamon. We also added graham cracker crumbs and ground toasted pistachio nuts. Once the filling is on the laminated phyllo sheets, we roll it and bake it until golden brown and the result is what i got above. It's relatively easy and quick to make.
