Weightwatchers Apple & Rhubarb Strudel

Its Octoberfest time of year again.

And what better way to enjoy Octoberfest than with an apple strudel.  It's one of those desserts that warms you up from the inside out.  The winter is well on its way and you can feel the chill in the morning times and the smell of the cinnamon and nutmeg really makes the house small like Autumn. 

Someone brought it to my attention that Jusroll Filo pastry does not work out at 1 Weightwatchers Propoints for 1 sheet.  Its actually 4 Propoints for 1 sheet.  It's 1 propoint per 15g which is 1/4 of a sheet.  So be careful when using filo pastry.  

Now this picture may not show the most decorative strudel but i have to say that it was very tasty and all for a Weightwatchers Propoints Value of 2 it was definitely worth the 15 mins preparation. 

Weightwatchers Propoints per Serving 2
Weightwatchers Propoints per Recipe 9
Serves 4


1 Large Pink Lady Apple chopped into small pieces
1 Small children's pack of Raisins 
1 stalk of Rhubarb diced up into small pieces
1 tsp of ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp of nutmeg
2 Tbl of brown sugar
1/2 tsp of lemon juice
1 sheet of Filo Pastry
Spray Oil
1/2 a tsp of icing sugar


Preheat the oven to gas mark 4.  Place the chopped apples, rhubarb and raisins in a bowl.  Add the lemon juice, spices and sugar.  Stir to combine and allow set aside.

Take the sheet of Filo pastry and on the fold cut into 4 long sheets.  Take 1 cut sheet and mist with a little spray oil.  Place 2 Tbl and 1 tsp of the apple mixture into the middle of each sheet until the mixture is used up. 

Gently fold the past over the mixture and then roll the pastry and scrunch the sides up.  Place seam side down onto a baking tray covered with parchment and placed in the oven for 35 minutes.  

Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes.  Place the icing sugar into a small sieve and dust over the strudels.  Serve warm with 1 scoop of Weightwatchers Vanilla Ice Cream. 

Enjoy the Niptuck way, so you don't have too!
