Ingredients:  
Dough
1/2 lb. butter, room temperature
1 cup sour cream
2 cups flour

Filling
2 cups shredded coconut
2 cups chopped nuts
2 cups apricot preserves
powdered sugar

Directions:
Directions:
Cream butter and work in sour cream. Add flour and mix thoroughly with a pastry blender. Wrap in waxed paper and refrigerate overnight.

Divide the dough into eight parts; work with one part at a time, keeping the remainder in the refrigerator. Roll dough to a very thin round on lightly floured waxed paper. Lift and turn circle of dough after every second or third "rolling", reflouring the waxed paper each time to keep the dough from sticking. Each section of dough should make a round 12-15 inches in diameter. Sprinkle with coconut and chopped nuts. Starting 1 inch from the edge nearest you. Spread a straight line of apricot preserves one inch wide across the width of the dough. Roll up carefully by lifting the waxed paper at the edge nearest you.
Each time you raise the paper higher, the dough will make another turn. This is as simple as pulling a rug out from under someone! Carefully lift the waxed paper and strudel roll onto a shallow baking tin or cookie sheet, and carefully pull the waxed paper out from under the strudel. Bake at 350F and continue baking until lightly browned (about 25 minutes). Using a sharp knife, slice the strudel very carefully at 1 1/2 inch intervals. Sprinkle with powdered sugar when cool. Makes about 50 pieces.
Note: this strudel should not be as brown as other types of strudel

Personal Notes:
This recipe comes from the Jewish cookbook, Love and Knishes. I doubt it is still in print. This is good but not as good as Aunt Gertrude and my mother-in-law's. They were experts!
