Minimalist strudel

The Tyrolean dessert that comes from the East … We all know it as the typical dessert that we enjoy when on the mountains, between a snow-covered slope and a chairlift ride, but in reality its origins are Middle Eastern. Its “parent” is in fact the very famous Turkish Baklava. Widespread throughout the Balkans, it reached Italy after Austrian control. The splendid apple crops and the excellent pastry chefs of Trentino transformed it into the dessert we all love.
