Pecan Apple Strudel

1 cup cold butter, cubed
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup butter, melted
4 medium tart apples, peeled and chopped
2 cups sugar
1 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Confectioners' sugar, optional

In a large bowl, cut butter into flour until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in sour cream and salt. Shape the dough into a ball; cover and refrigerate overnight.

For filling, combine bread crumbs and butter. Add apples, sugar, raisins, pecans and cinnamon; set aside. Preheat oven to 350°. Divide dough into thirds; turn onto a floured surface. Roll each into a 15x12-in. rectangle. Spoon filling evenly onto dough; spread to within 1 in. of edges. Roll up from a long side; pinch seams and ends to seal.

Carefully place each loaf seam side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 55-60 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely on wire racks. Dust with confectioners' sugar if desired. Makes 3 strudels (12 slices each).
