It is important to let the dough rest in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Soften the raisins with rum. Peel the apples, cut them into not too small pieces, put them in a non-stick pan with a knob of butter, cinnamon, lemon peel sugar (only yellow, otherwise it becomes bitter), pine nuts and softened raisins. Blend everything with the rum. If the mixture is too wet, add a handful of finely crumbled dry biscuits. Pull the dough into a 5 mm high rectangle, place the filling in the middle, lengthwise. Close the strudel and place it gently on the baking sheet
