Supermarkets sell great Phyllo Dough in the freezer section so it's easy to do this without all the fuss of making your own pastry and the results are fantastic!
Makes 2 strudel rolls
Preheat oven to 375
6 apples peeled and cut into small bits
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 c. honey
1/4 c. dried cranberries or raisins
1/4 c. chopped nuts, walnut, almond, or pecan
1 box of Phyllo Dough (about 10 sheets)
1/2 c. melted butter
2 Tbsp blended sugar and cinnamon for topping
1 cookie sheet with Silpat Mat or parchment paper on it
Combine the apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, honey, dried fruit, chopped nuts together in a bowl. Then roll out the phyllo dough on the counter. Starting with on sheet brush melted butter on it and layer 5 sheets brushing the melted butter between sheets. Then take 1/2 of the apple mixture and place on the lengthwise end of the dough. Roll each side up over the end of the apples, brush on more butter and loosely roll up the dough to create a log of strudel. Repeat with the rest of the phyllo dough to create a second log. Brush more butter on top and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over the top. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown. You may want to turn down the oven to 350 after a few minutes. Cool and slice. Serve with honey flavored whipped cream if desired. Enjoy!
As the weather gets towards the lower digits it feels wonderful to be cooking some fall apples. I love making apple pies but if you want an easy variation which is truly delicious and super easy with store bought phyllo dough. It's a great opportunity to use some honey you may have on hand. Quite Delicious!
Happy Cooking with Honey!
