The saying goes that you should be able to read a newspaper through your strudel dough—that’s how thin it should be. It seems like a daunting task, however strudel dough is incredibly elastic, and with careful handling, you’ll have success. The dough is extremely simple and easy to make, with only three ingredients. Once it has risen, you’ll use a combination of a rolling pin and your hands to roll and stretch the dough extremely thin over a clean kitchen towel. When it comes time to assemble the strudel, the towel will help you roll it tightly into the correct form. Now go make some strudel!
