In German, strudel means "whirlpool" - it is a light, crispy pastry made up of layers of filo dough.


Frozen fillo dough

2 piece(s), at room temperature

Reduced-calorie margarine

3 tsp(s), melted

Dried plain breadcrumbs

2 tbsp(s), plain


1 tsp(s)

Ground cinnamon

¼ tsp(s)


2 small, peeled, cored and sliced

Dried cranberries

1 tbsp(s)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F; spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Place the sheets of phyllo on a work surface and cut into four 12 x 8 1/2 inch rectangles; cover with a damp towel. Stack 2 rectangles and brush 1 teaspoon of margarine; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of bread crumbs. Stack remaining 2 rectangles directly over bread crumbs; brush with another teaspoon of margarine and sprinkle with remaining teaspoon of bread crumbs.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon; add apples and toss to coat. Spread apple mixture lengthwise down the centre of the phyllo and sprinkle with dried cranberries. Roll up the dough; place the strudel, seam-side down, on the baking sheet. Brush the top of the strudel with the remaining teaspoon of margarine. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
