How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.

  2. Place apple in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; add water to cover. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer 4 minutes or just until apple is tender. Drain; cool completely.

  3. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a bowl; reserve 1/2 teaspoon sugar mixture for topping. Combine remaining sugar mixture, apple, raisins, 1 tablespoon almonds and next 3 ingredients in a bowl; toss well.

  4. Place 1 phyllo dough sheet on work surface (cover remaining dough to keep from drying); lightly coat with cooking spray. Coat 5 additional phyllo sheets with cooking spray; place one on top of the other. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon almonds.

  5. Spoon half of apple mixture along 1 long edge of phyllo dough, leaving 2-inch borders along 1 long edge and 2 short edges. Fold over short edges of phyllo dough to cover 2 inches of apple mixture on each end.

  6. Starting at long edge with 2-inch border, loosely roll up jelly roll fashion. Place strudel, seam side down, on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Cut diagonal slits into top of strudel using a sharp knife. Lightly coat top of strudel with cooking spray; sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon reserved sugar mixture. Repeat procedure with remaining ingredients.

  7. Bake at 400° for 15 minutes; reduce oven temperature to 350°, and bake an additional 10 minutes or until golden brown.
