Shiner Catholic Church hosts strudel bake

For the 26th year, volunteers and friends of the Saints Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church in Shiner will come together to make homemade apple strudels.

Last year, a new record of 3,000 strudels were made at this one-day event.

Advance orders are required and must be placed by Thursday.

The price is $14 for unbaked strudel, complete with simple baking instructions. The unbaked variety is by far the most popular. They can be made fresh at home and keep for months in the freezer.
