Strudel Roll Cookies

These cookies are inspired by the classic Austrian dessert, apple strudel. They have a similar flavor and texture, but are much easier to make! The dough is rolled out thin and spread with a mixture of apples, raisins, sugar, and cinnamon. Then it is rolled up into a log shape and sliced into individual cookies. These cookies are best enjoyed fresh out of the oven!
