1 cup raisins
1/3 cup finely chopped pecans or walnuts, dry-roasted
8 sheets phyllo dough, thawed (in the freezer pastry dough section)
1/2 cup honey
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon margarine (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, mix raisins and nuts, set aside. Lightly spray
every other sheet of phyllo with vegetable oil spray, stacking all
the sheets. Spread raisin-nut mixture over the phyllo, leaving a
1-inch border on all sides. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with
cinnamon. Starting on the long side, roll lengthwise, and place,
seam side down, on a nonstick baking sheet, making sure the ends
of the roll are tucked under. Brush the top lightly with margarine,
(or spray with vegetable oil). Cut through the pastry to the
raisin-nut mixture, at 1 1/2 inch intervals, to provide vents for
steam to escape. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until light golden
brown. Slice, using vent lines as guides. Makes 12 servings.
