Fagottini of phyllo dough and vanilla-scented apples

Fagottini of phyllo dough

The filo pastry and apple bundles are crunchy and delicious, perfect for when you are in the mood for something sweet.

The apple and phyllo pastry dumplings are delicious served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. You can also substitute cinnamon for vanilla and add raisins and pine nuts to create a delicious little strudel-like, or vary the fruit by using pears or plums and maybe a sprinkling of chopped walnuts or almonds. The difficulty of this recipe is to handle the phyllo dough which is extremely thin and dries immediately in the air. So be gentle and pull out one sheet at a time, keeping the others covered as you work. If it starts to dry out, moisten it by wiping it with wet fingers. Buckle up your aprons and let’s go cook.
