TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup diced peeled tart apple
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 4 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons 100% orange marmalade spreadable fruit
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 sheets phyllo dough, (14 inches x 9 inches)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon confectioners' sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients; set aside. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface; lightly brush with butter (keep remaining phyllo dough covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to keep from drying out). Fold dough in half widthwise, making a 9-in. x 7-in. rectangle; lightly brush with butter. Cut dough in half lengthwise, making two 9-in. x 3-1/2-in. strips.
  • 2. Place 1 heaping tablespoon of apple mixture on the lower corner of each strip. Fold dough over filling, forming a triangle. Continue folding, like a flag, to the end of the strip. Lightly brush with butter, making sure all edges are sealed. Repeat with remaining phyllo dough and filling to make six more turnovers.
  • 3. Place turnovers on a baking sheet lightly coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 16-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack. Lightly dust with confectioners' sugar. Yield: 4 servings.
