Ingredients:

1 pound commercial filo sheets
---filling---
8 medium apples*
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup currants or raisins
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup butter -- melted
---topping---
1 cup powdered sugar
 

Preparation / Directions:

*Note- Apples should be cored, peeled and chopped. If desired, 2 cups canned apples (drained) may be substituted. Defrost frozen filo to room temperature, 2 to 4 hours. Mix filling in a bowl tossing ingredients with a spoon. Set aside. Lay 5 sheets filo flat, one on top of each other, with a little melted butter brushed between the sheets. Spread 1 cup of filling along one end. Roll filo over the apple filling so you will have a long filled tube. Fold side edges over 1/2" so filling won't fall out. Continue rolling. Place in a buttered baking pan or cookie sheet. Brush tops generously with melted butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour. Sift powdered sugar over tops and sides as soon as it is taken out of the oven and while still hot. When cool, cut into 2" pieces and serve.
