TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups chopped peeled tart apples
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 sheets phyllo dough (14 inches x 9 inches)
  • Butter-flavored cooking spray
  • Confectioners' sugar, optional

Directions

  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the apples, sugar, walnuts, flour and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • 2. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a work surface (keep remaining dough covered with plastic wrap and a damp towel to prevent it from drying out). Spray with butter-flavored spray.
  • 3. Fold in half widthwise; spray again with butter-flavored spray. Spoon a scant 1/3 cup filling onto phyllo about 2 in. from a short side. Fold side and edges over filling and roll up. Place seam side down on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Repeat.
  • 4. With a sharp knife, cut diagonal slits in tops of strudels. Spray strudels with butter-flavored spray. Bake at 350° for 20-22 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
