Cindy McGrew of Herminie, Pa., wrote asking for help in finding a "German recipe for plum strudel. I've looked in all the books I can find and haven't seen anything that even looks similar.

Ullman of Baltimore responded with a recipe that tester Laura Reiley chose. It came from McCall's magazine, August 1975.
