- 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
- 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.

Reviews for Mini Apple Strudels
"These Apple Strudels have been a huge hit! I used Splenda instead of sugar and pecans instead of walnuts both times I've made this recipe. They are so easy to make. I melted butter the first time, but used spray the second...so much easier/faster! The second time I had leftovers and froze them...enjoyed them 2 weeks later and they were as good as the fresh strudels...couldn't tell the difference. This means I can make them in advance of having guests and enjoy a tasty treat with no prep work during their visit...love it!"
"Good recipe, but was easier made with pie dough instead of Phillo dough and liked it better with pie dough. Tasted great."
"This was great - everyone enjoyed it and thought I spend hours in the kitchen (but I didn't)!! Will make it again soon."
"For PENKAT try again but be sure your oven is really at full baking temperature and that you set the pan on the LOWEST rack in the oven. This will insure that the bottom bakes first and that the crust is not soggy. Use this same technique for any pie or crispy pastie you bake."
"I'm from Germany and on year I visited Salzburg. In a restaurant I had a chance to ordered Strudel with Vanilla sauce. The Strudel was just swimming in the sauce. It also was so filling that I could had it for a whole meal. All I can tell you, it was yummy, yummy!!!"
"Not made it yet"
"I'm excited about receiving your recipes & trying them."
"Made this for my "German" themed book - book club dessert. Fabulous, easy, delicious. I have also made with sliced peaches. Yummy!"
"This is a really good, easy & healthier option for desert. Instead of sprinkling with powdered sugar, I sprinkled cinnamin & regular sugar on top."
"Super tasty, rather easy and quick."
"I made these for a dinner and everyone was very impressed. I used splenda in place of the sugar and added raisins. Yummy"
"This was such a mess! I followed the instructions but it fell apart in the oven. None of them look like the picture. It wasn't the phyllo dough, but it just soaked thru and make the crust soggy."
"They are really easy to make and have a great taste!"
"I used melted butter and brushed on instead of butter spray"
"I have made these a few times since I got the recipe.I love them! I use splenda. I made a bunch of them froze them and take them out an hour brfore baking. Baked off perfectly."
"Excellent! I made it when we guests staying at the house. Everyone loved them!"
"this was the bomb we enjoyed it so much I think am going to put extra walnuts and some rasins nexts time"
"Yum, yum! Hard to believe the calorie count is so low. I put a couple drops of stevia liquid in the filling, and used the sugar as a sprinkle on top. I also used an egg mixed with 1/4c milk to brush the phyllo. I've made this with banana slices and peaches too - delish!"
"Delicious and easy to make. The only thing I found was that they didn't crisp up on top as much as I had hoped. Maybe they will as they cool more."
"These were AWESOME..I used "I can't believe it's not butter" spray. I added craisans too.I will double recipe next time. My husband loved them!"
"I didn't use the cooking spray - I went straight to melted butter - my family loved them!"
"i fixed this dessert for my family. they gobbled it up. my 4 year old grandson loved them so much he ate 3 in one sitting.i thought the phyllo dough would be a problem,but it was a snap to use."
"very good and easy. I put confectioners sugar glaze on top and had no leftovers!"
"Very easy to make. I have made them with peaches and cherries as the filling. They are good enough to put on a dessert tree."
"They were very good. Made a double batch,and the last six I used two sheets of phyllo dough, and used melted butter."
"Made this recipe and it was great! I didn't put the leftovers in a sealed container, I left them out on a plate and they stayed crisp. I also used pecans instead of walnuts and sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top before baking. My whole family loved them!"
"I used the cooking spray and I did not like the after taste. I would try the spray butter the next time."
"Easy to make. I used melted butter instead of the spray. I wondered how to keep them krisp too?"
"This was very good. I used spray butter instead of cooking spray. I didn't think cooking spray would taste very good. Next time I will probably brush on melted butter to make it even better even though it would add to the calorie count. Since I was cooking for 10 people I used about 3/4 of the box of phyllo dough and didn't really measure the rest of the ingredients. I omitted the confectioner's sugar. It would be great with ice cream or drizzled with an icing made with confectioner's sugar and milk."
"Delicious, my family and friends loved it. I omited the confectioner's sugar and instead added grandulated sugar over the top of the raw dough before baking."
"Toasting the nuts helped the flavor- we also iced ours with a conf. sugar glaze-We used peaches the second night(w/ cin and brown sugar) no leftovers either time"
"Yes, It was a big hit. I liked the fact it was only a 100 cal. dessert."
"Yummy! Easy! Quick! ... when warm I would add vanilla ice cream and maybe caramel!!!"
"I did make this recipe over the Labor Day week-end. My family just loved it. Was told to "please" make it again. The powdered sugar was good on it, but i also think that you could include a scoop of ice cream and that would make it also very tasty.I would rate this a FIVE STAR recipe."
"These were wonderful! Very easy to make and tasty. Will definitely make again."
"These are great and so simple to make. I did find that using 1 sheet of phyllo dough did not seem to hold together as well, so I increased it to 2. I also question how to keep them crispy. I put them in a tupperware container and the phyllo got soft."
"Easy to put together. Used melted butter instead of the spray throughout the recipe."
"Super easy and super good. My husband likes to have a little dessert after supper and these are perfect. Not too sweet."
"This recipe was loved by the whole family. Light and crispy with the apple pie flavor everyone loves, and only 100 calories!! It's a winner."
"This recipe is so easy and so so good. I made if on short notice when company was coming and they loved it."
"My grandmother made these for us with leftover strudel dough in Germany during fall harvest season, and I have made these for many years for my Boy's. I used brown sugar like she did ( we didn't have white sugar then) and raisins instead of nuts. I brushed the top with egg wash and sprinkled brown sugar on, or just the powdered sugar. We called them Kinderschtrudele (Childrenstrudel). The are also great with fresh or canned peach or pear slices."
"I really liked how easy this recipe was to make and how delicious it was to eat. I would recommend everyone to try it."
"I have not yet made this recipe but, I already know it will be a 5 star. My husband love's apple pie and I love strudel. ( I'm German)"
"Very good...I added 1/4 Cup Skor Bits (Heath Bar). I served these to company, and they enjoyed them; I would definately make this again. A+"
"Real comfort food -- just delicious and so easy."
"I substituted walnuts with pecans. I used 1/2 bronw sugar and 1/2 white sugar. I let the apple mixture sit for about 20 minutes, stirring on occasion to blend the flavour of sugars and cinnamon with the apples. Phyllo dough a llittle tricky to work with. Ensure they are completely cooled. All in all a good recipe"
"Easy and delicious; definitely a keeper."
"These were great. And I will make them again.vpl"
