Apple and Cinnamon Rolls

Made with mediterannean pastry which is light and crispy, flavoured with cinnamon these sweet delights would be a great alternative to mince pies.  Unlike filo, mediterannean pastry is very easy to work with and can also be filled with a savoury mixture.


5 sheets of fine mediterannean pastry (available from supermarkets)

For the filling

4 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
50g raisins
3 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp ground cinnamon
25g butter

Icing sugar for dusting

Melt the butter and add the apples and raisins.  Cook for a couple of minutes then add the rest of the filling ingredients and cook until the apples are tender and caramelised.  Leave to cool.

Pre-heat the oven to 210C

Divide the mixture between the 5 pastry sheets and roll up to a spring roll shape.  Place on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 4-5 minutes until crisp and golden.  Sprinkle over a little icing sugar.

Serve hot with cream or ice-cream.
