"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Mildred Toof


1 box prepared phyllo dough (8 sheets)
Butter flavored vegetable cooking spray
2 tsp. sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon

2 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and chopped (~2 1/4 c.)
1 tsp. lemon juice
3 T. granulated sugar
1 T. flour
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Preheat oven to 400. In a medium sized bowl, combine all the filling ingredients and set aside. Place stacked phyllo sheets on a floured surface and cut lengthwise in 3-4 inch wide strips. Cover the phyllo strips with plastic wrap to maintain moisture.

Place 1 strip of phyllo on work surface and lightly coat with vegetable spray. Top with another strip of phyllo and mound 1 heaping T. of filling on one end, about 1 inch from corner. Fold opposite corner of same end over the filling, forming a triangle. Continue folding your way up the strip. Repeat steps with remaining strips of phyllo and filling (~12 turnovers).

To bake, place turnovers seam-side down on lightly greased cookie sheet. Lightly spray tops with cooking spray and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake 15-17 minutes or until golden. Remove to wire rack to cool.
