  5. 10 minutes or more; or you may toss and beat dough on the board for about 15 minutes. The more you beat the dough the better the dough will be to work with. Place in a greased bowl. Cover and let rest for at least one hour. *HOW TO STRETCH STRUDEL DOUGH* Spread table with a cloth large enough to hang over the sides. Sprinkle lightly with flour and place dough in the center.

  6. 18 inch circle. Slide hand gently below circle of dough and let the dough rest on the back of your hands with your palms down. Now pull the center of the dough gently toward you. Stretch and pull the dough as you walk slowly around the table. Dough should be thin as tissue paper. Then tear or cut off the thick outer edges, leaving about two inches of dough hanging over the sides of the table. Now proceed to spread on the desired filling immediately. Roll up gently by lifting the cloth and place your strudel in a well greased baking pan to bake.

Because of the skillet, once you roll up the strudel (like a jelly roll) you must curl the strudel into a spiral shape to fit into the skillet.
