ANSWER Stephanie Huger, Meyerstown, wanted a
recipe for pumpkin strudel with poppy seeds and sour cream
or cream cheese. Her grandmother from Hungary made it, but
Stephanie lost the recipe. This request has run for a long time,
and we have not received an answer. However, here is a
recipe for Poppy Seed Strudel from our files. Strudel is a Ger
man term for a central European pastry of stretched paper
thin dough rolled up with a filling. It is superlatively fragile and
delicious. Americans tend to be afraid of trying to make the
stretched dough, but once they have done so many agree that
is is no more difficult than making a good pie crust. I think with
a bit of experimentation, you could adapt a cream cheese fill
ing from another recipe and either add the pumpkin to the fill
ing or to the strudel, whichever way you remember it. Good
3 cups flours
'/s teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 beaten egg
1 cup lukewarm water
Sift flour and salt into a large bowl. Make a well in the center
of the flour; place oil and egg in the depression.
Work flour gently into oil and egg and gradually add water
to make a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured pastry board. Hold
dough high above obaord and crash it down against the
board. Repeat this about 100-125 times or until the dough is
smooth and elastic and leaves the board clean.
Knead slightly and pat it into a round. Lightly brush surface
of dough with oil but not olive oil.
Cover dough with an inverted warmed bowl and allow to
rest from 30-60 minutes.
To stretch dough; spread a large table 3x5-feet with a clean

Spread Sprinkle cloth lightly but thoroughly with about
% cup flour.
Place dough in center of cloth and roll it into a large oblong,
turning it several limes to prevent its sticking to the cloth, and
rolling the outer edges as thinly as possible.
With a soft brush, lightly brush the dough with cooking oil
(not olive oil); the oil aids in preventing the formation of holes
Now reach under the dough and start stretching (do not
pull) gently from the center to the outer edge.
Some people work with the backs of the hands. They turn
the palms downward and stretch with slightly raised knuckles
only. Others prefer to keep the plams up with fingers straight
out, working with a circular motion under the dough. You will
soon learn which method is most convenient tor you.
Work around the table until the evenly stretched dough is
as thin as paper and drapes over the edges of the table on all
As you stretch, keep the dough close to the table, the
dough should not have any torn spots. If some should appear,
do not tty to patch them.
With kitchen scissors, trim off the thick outer edges that
overhang the table.

should lose its stickiness but avoid drying too long because it
