4 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups butter
2 eggs, well beaten
2 cans pie filling or for apple: 5 cups sliced apples, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Mix together flour and sugar. Cut in butter until “pea-sized” crumbs are achieved. Stir in 2 beaten eggs. Pour 3/4 of mixture into a jelly roll pan. Top with apples or pie filling. Sprinkle remaining dough over the top.
Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
Drizzle with glaze:
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract (or almond extract for cherry streudel)
1 tablespoon milk
Add powdered sugar and stir until drizzling consistency.
When making cherry streudel, I stir a little almond extract into the the pie filling.
