This is super simple and truly delicious. I made it for John's birthday dinner, since he loves cinnamon apple desserts with vanilla ice cream. It's light and flavorful without being too rich. We finished it all in one night between the six of us. Mmm!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Melt the butter in a small bowl in the microwave or on a stove. Stack layers of dough brushing each layer with butter before topping with next layer. Brush top layer with butter. (The original recipe called for 8 Tbsp of butter. I only needed 3. Adjust as you like.)
  2. In a bowl combine the apples, raisins, brown sugar and cinnamon. (I left out the raisins since my kids don't like them). Spoon filling down the left long-side of the rectangular phyllo stack. Fold top edge down and bottom edge up by about 2 inches to cover the filling. Roll the dough along the long side until the two edges are folded under the strudel to enclose the filling. (You may not be able to fit all of the apple mixture, depending on the size of the apples you used). Brush the resulting log with butter. Combine the 2 Tbsp sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon and sprinkle evenly onto the log. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and puffed.
  3. Slice and serve, adding a scoop of vanilla ice cream if you like.

    I absolutely loved this dessert. Apple, cinnamon, and flaky filo dough...what's not to love? I prefer this to 99% of the apple pies I've tasted. It's that good.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
