Ok, so I know I’ve been missing in action for quite a while….that ends now. It has been busy, we did some traveling, then we came back and had to get routined again. I still had some phyllo dough, and decided I would implement it into something.


I wanted something sweet but light, and something fast. I had one episode of Thomas the Train to sneak into the kitchen in peace…

Lately, everyone I know is on a fitness kick, which is excellent! I commend all of you! It’s not easy. I for one can go to the gym, workout and eat fairly healthy, but I just can’t substitute dessert for a granola bar.

This recipe is on the lighter side…for me. Fresh fruit, cinnamon, light and flakey dough, and of course pecans!

I guess you could consider it a spring apple pie ;)

Thinly sliced apples, tossed in lemon, cinnamon, and brown sugar; placed beautifully on a layered flakey crust and topped with pecans…yum. It’s tart yet sweet, and has the perfect amount of crunch and tenderness.

You can add a little dollop of ice cream, but it’s definitely not necessary since its just that great on its own


What you need:

  • 2 medium apples of choice, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 sheet of phyllo dough (about 6-8 layers)
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp flour
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 tbsp butter

Begin by tossing sliced apples in lemon juice. (This will prevent browning while you work with the dough)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees fahrenheit.

Lightly brush each sheet of phyllo dough with butter, stack them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Add cinnamon,sugar,pecans, and flour to apples, gently mix.

Place apple mixture on dough sheets; fold in edges of dough sheets. Brush with butter.

Bake for 20 mins or until edges are golden brown
