Apple Strudel

Have not done a recipe in a couple of weeks so here's a delicious one.

Apple Strudel

4 cups flour
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 1/4 cup warm water
1 tsp salt
Combine ingredients in bowl to form soft dough ball. Knead 15 minutes and let rise for one hour in warm place. While rising make the filling.

10 apples, sliced thin
1 cup butter
1 (1/2) cup sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
dash nutmeg
1 cup cake (bread) crumbs

Melt butter. Add crumbs, sugar and spices mixing well. Let stand until cool. Turn out dough onto floured surface. With your hands flatten dough until thin, then use rolling pin to flatten until paper thin. Spread filling over dough then apple slices. Start at one end and roll, taking care not to tear dough. Bake 65 minutes at 350. Note: you may use bread crumbs instead of cake crumbs but increase sugar by the bracketed amount.
