Mennonite Apple Strudel
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon salt 2 tablespoons shortening 2 eggs, slightly beaten 1/2 cup warm water 5 cups sliced apples 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed 1/2 cup seedless raisins 1/2 cup chopped nuts 5 tablespoons melted butter 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon Grated rind of 1 lemon
Sift the flour and salt together. Cut in the shortening and add the eggs and water. Knead well, then throw or beat the dough against a board until it blisters. Stand the dough in a warm place under a cloth for 20 minutes.
Cover the kitchen table with a small white cloth and flour it. Put the dough on it and pull it out with your hands very carefully to the thickness of tissue paper. Spread with a mixture of the fruits, sugar, melted butter, cinnamon and lemon rind. Fold in the outer edges of the dough and roll like a jellyroll - about 4 inches wide. Bake in a very hot oven (450 degrees F) for 10 minutes, reduce the oven temperature to 400 degrees F and bake about 20 minutes longer. Let cool. Cut into slices about 2 inches wide. It should be flaky and moist.
