Mini Apple Strudel's

I love the smell of freshly baked things especially in the morning. I use to work in a bakery and the smell of freshly baked breads and pastries was overwhelmingly delicious sometimes when i worked the morning shift! I did get use to the smells which was a bit sad as it didn't have the same appeal after a while as most things do.

I have many fond memories of working in the bakery and many fond memories of all the wonderful things i indulged in from the leftovers of the day.... Lamingtons, pies, mini pizza's, foccacia's, custard tarts, apple turnovers .... oh the list could go on and on! I can't believe I never turned into a house! Oh well the metabolism of a teenager gotta love it! One of the favourites of many people was the good old apple turnover... especially with cream!

My husband requested some Mini Apple Strudels one weekend and i thought i would try and whip a batch up as i never had made them before. This is how they turned out.....

They are very versatile and are perfect for brunch, afternoon tea or with custard as a dessert and why not whip them up this weekend for Mother's Day?? Make sure you check out our Mother's Day special at the end of this post!!
