Glenda’s Best Apple Strudel Recipe

Fall, we hardly knew ya.. December is coming to a close, and we struggle to account for our activities over the past year. Some of us stream-binged so often that we fried our cable connections. And some of us turned into Marie Kondo, organizing our homes so efficiently that we still can’t find Sophie the cat (“oh, I hear her collar jingling”). There is also a sizable group of people who discarded their toasted cable boxes and Roku sticks in favor of baking pans. Wildberry Lodge is pleased to share the Best Apple Strudel Recipe in Asheville NC, a favorite recipe from our “sideboard”: Glenda’s Apple Strudel!
