4 large apples
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup seedless raisins
1/4 cup almond slivers
1/2 cup butter, melted
4 sheets phyllo dough
2 tablespoons bread crumbs
Peel, core, and finely chop apples. Mix with sugar, spices, raisins,
nuts, and 2 tablespoons melted butter.
Unwrap phyllo dough and keep between two dampened tea towels. Place
one sheet of dough on a third tea towel. Brush with melted butter
and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Place second sheet of phyllo on
top of first, brush with butter, and sprinkle with crumbs. Repeat
with remaining sheets of phyllo.
Spread apple filling, about two inches in, along one long side of
dough, to within two inches of each edge. Filling should be spread
about three inches
wide. Fold long side over once to cover filling, then fold in edges.
Continue to roll lengthwise, like a jelly roll, using towel to
Brush each roll with butter, and place, seam side down, on a lightly
buttered baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees about 20-25 minutes,
until golden. Remove from oven and score top into 1-1/2" slices
with a sharp knife. Cool and cut into slices.
