Apple strudel

In cooking, an Apple strudel/pie is a fruit pie in which the
principal filling ingredient is apples.This was my first attempt of making
an Apple Puff.I bought the frozen Puff Pastry few
days ago and had no idea what to do with it so today
I tried to make some Apple Pie using this Puff Pastry.
The taste was awesome!...
In this recipe I omit using the cinnamon powder for the flavouring because I don't like it.
