3 1/2 cups of flour
Pinch of salt
A little more sugar
3 T melted oleo
one egg mixed with water to fill one cup

Mix these together and knead well for 10 minutes or until the dough is nice and smooth.
Butter a bowl and let the dough rest, covered, for one hour.

5 pounds of apples
1/2 stick butter
1/2 stick oleo

Peel and slice the apples.

Melt the butter with the oleo.

Spread the kitchen table with an old sheet, so it's hanging over the sides. Sprinkle it with flour and place half of the dough in the center. With a floured rolling pin, roll it into a circle. Then slide your hands gently below the dough and let it rest on the back of your hands with the palms down. Now pull the dough gently toward you. Stretch and pull the dough as you walk slowly around the table. Brush the dough with melted butter and continue to stretch it as thin as tissue paper.

Spread half the apples on the dough; sprinkle them with 2 handfuls of sugar and enough cinnamon to see.

Roll it up by gently lifting the sheet. Put it on a cookie sheet greased with shortening or bacon grease.

Brush strudel with milk and sprinkle a little sugar over the top.

Bake it at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes or until it's nice and brown.
