  2. Add your two sticks of room temperature butter chopped into Cubs, mix with a fork till butter is in small pieces combined with the flour. ( doesn’t have to be perfect just mixed enough so the butter isn’t mixed into cups anymore and it is combined with the flour alittle.
  3. Make a hole in the middle of the flour butter mixture and pour your 1 cup water gradually well mixing.
  4. Once you have added the full cup cold water to the mixture you will want to use your hands to mix in the ingredients you still want little chunks of butter to be showing through in your dough but mix so it gives it a marble affect. Add that extra 1/2 cup flour as needed till it is a perfect dough.
  5. Put in the fright for 20 minutes to set, well it is setting work on your filling.

Steps To Make The Filling:

  1. Start by washing your apples and cutting chunks of apple off away from the core. You can do this by cutting two large pieces off each side of the Apple and two small pieces off remaining. You’ll be left with two large chunks and two small chunks of apple from each apple ( no need to peal the apples)
  2. Once you have cut your chunks of apple off you will want to cut them into small slices no more than a 1/2 cm thick than chops them side to side after to creat small little cubs of Apple.
  3. When you are finish preparing your apples you will warm up a large pan on medium head.
  4. Throw in the 2 Table spoons butter and wait till melted. Once you are done that throw in your apples coating them in the melted butter.
  5. Add your 1/2 cup brown sugar to the pan, mix consistently till melted. You want the brown sugar to completely coat your apples.
  6. Add your 2 Tablespoons Cinnamon. Mix consistently.
  7. Add your pinch of salt and your 1/2 cup Flour. Mix in till everything is combined.
  8. Add your 2 teaspoons lemon juice to the mixture and make sure everything is evenly covered, continue to stir.
  9. Once you have added the mixture in and the apples have been cooking on medium heat for five minutes add in one more tablespoon of butter, stir in till it is completely mixed and covered everything evenly.
  10. Turn down the heat to 4 or low heat. Cook for an additional 2 minutes and take off heat to let cool on the side.

Easy Tasty Icing Instructions:

  1. In a small pan melt your cream cheese on medium heat till it is a creamy consistency. Once it is a creamy consistency put it in a bowel.
  2. Than add the 1 tablespoon vanilla Extract mix throughly.
  3. Add in your 1 1/4 a cup powdered sugar gradually well mixing in till all of it is mixed in and set aside covered.

Instructions to make the Apple Cinnamon Toaster Strudels:

  1. Preheat oven to 375, line your pan with parchment paper.
  2. Beat 1 full egg in a bowel for coat the edges of your pastry and top of the pastry later on.
  3. Take you pastry dough out of the fridge and roll out on a lightly floured surface, into a thin 1/2 cm think dough. You don’t want it to thin but you don’t want it to thick.
  4. Once you have done that cut off the extra edges around your perimeter of your dough to make a rectangle shape.
  5. Cut down the centre of your rectangle
  6. Than cut side to side onto 4 even sections , which should give you 8 equal rectangle.
  7. Transfer 4 of these rectangles to your parchment paper. Lightly Line the edges with your egg mixture and add your filling roughly 1-2 Table spoons filling per pastry you can add more or less if you would like but make sure they are full.
  8. Once you have lined your pastry with the egg mixture and added the filling you will than take your remaining 4 rectangles and put them on top of each of your 4 filled rectangles. You will take a fork and press down on all the edges with the fork to seal them. Not only does it seal them great it creates a beautiful edge.
  9. Once you are done sealing all your toaster strudels, you will brush the top of each one of them with the egg mixture. Than take a knife and cut 2-4 small lines across the top just to let them breath when cooking and puff up nice do not make these small lines to big and it helps to cut them diagonally.
  10. Repeat these steps for the remainder of the dough and filling. Once your have completed making all 8 toaster strudels you can throw them in the oven to make for 25-30 minutes or till golden brown on top. Watch to make sure you do not burn them.
  11. Once they are baked set aside to cool for 5 minutes before adding your icing onto the ones you are going to eat. I do not suggest adding the icing on if your are not going to eat them right away.
  12. When going to freeze toss your extra icing into an easy access bag and freeze. Put your toaster strudels in a freezer bag so they stay seal and fresh. Heat up in a toaster when ready to eat and take out your icing a head of time to apply it or I usually just put cream cheese on mine in the morning it is delicious.

Best Garlic Bread Recipe Ever!

The best garlic bread recipe is easy to make and awesome to serve at any supper. This Garlic bread recipe taste a lot like restaurant garlic bread. It is my own recipe and can make up to 3 small loafs and 8 bread sticks Or just bread sticks roughly 20+. Below are the simple steps to make the best garlic bread ever that will be a hit with your family and friends.

Ingredients for the dough: 

  • 4 Tablespoons of soften butter.
  • 2 Tablespoons of salt
  • 4 Cups flour
  • 1 Packet of active dry yest.
  • 1-2 Cups of water but add slowly and need in. ( might need more than two cups)
  • 2 Table spoons sugar.
  • 1 teaspoon garlic.

Ingredients for the topping glaze:

  • 4 Tablespoons butter.
  • 2-3 Tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 Tablespoons Italian spice.

Instructions:

  1. Mix 1 cup warm water with the dry active yeast in a Small Bowel, let sit for 5 minutes till it is foamy.
  2. Grab a Large mixing bowel, add the 4 cups flour, 2 Table spoons salt, 1 Teaspoon garlic powder and 2 Table spoons sugar. Mix all dry ingredients together than add the softened butter and mix thoroughly. You will notice the butter just kinda clumps that’s okay. You just want it mixed in the best you can till you add your wet ingredients.
  3. Add the water yeast mixture into the bowel slowly well mixing together. Add more water as needed till a dough is formed but make sure you are mixing it throughly with your hands. I always add a little butter onto my hands to help it from sticking.
  4. You want your dough to be just a little sticky. But not so much that it’s sticking to your hands. Once your dough is done set it off to the side to rise for 15-20 minutes.
  5. Well your dough is rising get your cooking pans ready. I use 2 cooking pans with parchment paper on them.
  6. Than in a small pot, I melt 4 tablespoons butter. Than add in the garlic powder and Italian seasoning. This will make a great base you will brush on half way through cooking.
  7. Once your dough is done setting grab a mediums sized chuck off the dough ball. About the size of a small loaf of bread. Remember the bread will rise in the oven. Make 3 small loafs. (If your making bread sticks just roll out think stretched out rolls of dough into your pan make sure they aren’t to big. Make them into bread stick shapes and lengths.
  8. Once you are done making your 3 small loafs make the remainder into bread sticks. Take the glaze you made and brush it onto your bread before popping in the oven. Do the same with the bread sticks.
  9. Bake your small loafs at 400 degrees, for 15-25 minutes watch closely to make sure they do not burn. You will want to brush on that butter topping half ways through and let them cook for the remaining minutes. Your bread sticks will need half the time to cook compared to the bread. Anywhere from 10-15 minutes.

Once they are done they will be a little brown on the bottom and sides. Slice and eat! I hope you enjoyed my best garlic bread recipe ever. I hope you enjoy your garlic bread!
