Apple pie is one of the best parts of Thanksgiving. But once the holiday's over and Christmas commercials start airing, eggnog, peppermint, and gingerbread-flavored foods get free reign on menus. I like a cookie and a glass of eggnog every now and then, but I don't understand why warm, soft apple filling inside a flaky pastry crust has to go by the wayside come December. Thankfully, apple strudel is a delicious stand-in that lets you enjoy fruit dessert through the New Year.
Here are 6 tasty strudels in the D.C. area—some traditional and apple-filled, and other more unusual options. Check out our picks in the slideshow, and let us know your favorites in the comments below!
