    6      cup           Apples; tart -- sliced
      3/4  cup           Raisins
    1      tablespoon    Lemon rind -- grated

Place 1 fillo leaf on a kitchen towel and brush witl melted butter. Place a
second leaf on top and brush with butter again.
 Repeat until 5 leaves have been used, using about 1/2 c of butter.
 Cook and stir bread crumbs with 1/4 c of butter until lightly browned.
 Sprinkle 3/4 cup crumbs on the layered fillo leaves.  Mound 1/2 of the filling in
a 3-inch strip along the narrow end of the fillo, leaving a 2-inch border. Lift
towel, using it to roll leaves over apples, jelly roll fashion.  Brush top of the

minutes, until browned. Makes 2 strudels, 6 to 8 servings each. NOTE: Frozen
fillo leaves for strudel can be found at most supermarkets in the frozen foods
sections.
