Ingredients

Filling:

  • 1 cup dried apples, chopped¬†
  • 1/3 cup thawed apple juice concentrate, undiluted¬†
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon¬†
  • Dash of ground nutmeg¬†
  • 1/4 cup sugar¬†
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces)¬†
  • 1/3-less-fat cream cheese¬†
  • 1 large egg

Pastry:

  • 12 sheets frozen phyllo dough, thawed¬†
  • Cooking spray¬†
  • 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs, divided¬†
  • 1/4 cup sugar, divided

Topping:

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar¬†
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Instructions

Step 1

To prepare the filling, combine the first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring the apple mixture to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Cool to room temperature. Combine 1/4 cup sugar and cream cheese in a small bowl; beat with a mixer at low speed until blended. Add egg; beat until blended. Fold in apple mixture; cover and set aside.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 3

To prepare the pastry, place 1 phyllo sheet on a large cutting board or work surface (cover remaining dough to keep from drying), and lightly coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle the phyllo with 2 teaspoons graham cracker crumbs and 1 teaspoon sugar. Repeat the layers twice, ending with the crumbs and sugar. Cut phyllo stack lengthwise into 6 (2 3/4-inch-wide) strips using a sharp knife. Spoon 1 rounded teaspoon of apple mixture 1/2 inch from the end of each phyllo strip. Roll up each strip, beginning with apple mixture end; place the strips, seam sides down, on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, and lightly coat each roll with cooking spray. Repeat the procedure with the remaining phyllo, crumbs, sugar, and apple mixture.

Step 4

To prepare the topping, combine 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over phyllo rolls. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes, and cool on a wire rack.
