    Brandess's Note:

    Years ago, I was looking for a low fat, yet satisfying dessert for a special dinner and I came across these flavor packed, strudel like, cigars. They are so satisfying, look elegant and disappear quickly. They also pack a wallop for presentation, but are very simplistic to make. They also freeze well if you freeze them before baking.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 24

    Yield:

    Cigars

    Units: US | Metric

    Filling

    Pastry

    Topping

    Directions:

    1. 1
      To prepare the filling, combine the first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring the apple mixture to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 5 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed. Cool to room temperature. Combine 1/4 cup sugar and cream cheese in a small bowl; beat with a mixer at low speed until blended. Add egg; beat until blended. Fold in apple mixture; cover and set aside.
    2. 2
      Preheat oven to 350°.
    3. 3
      To prepare the pastry, place 1 phyllo sheet on a large cutting board or work surface (cover remaining dough to keep from drying), and lightly coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle the phyllo with 2 teaspoons graham cracker crumbs and 1 teaspoon sugar. Repeat the layers twice, ending with the crumbs and sugar. Cut phyllo stack lengthwise into 6 (2 3/4-inch-wide) strips using a sharp knife. Spoon 1 rounded teaspoon of apple mixture 1/2 inch from the end of each phyllo strip. Roll up each strip, beginning with apple mixture end; place the strips, seam sides down, on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray, and lightly coat each roll with cooking spray. Repeat the procedure with the remaining phyllo, crumbs, sugar, and apple mixture.
    4. 4
      To prepare the topping, combine 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over phyllo rolls. (To Freeze: Here is were I place the cigars on a baking sheet and hard freeze for 1 hour. Remove the cigars and place in freezer proof bags or FoodSaver them on the gentle setting.).
    5. 5
      Bake at 350° for 10 minutes, and cool on a wire rack.

      These are very tasty and pretty simple - even though I kind of missed the instructions that they were supposed to be 2 3/4 inch strips - I cut the strips the wrong direction, so mine were more like cigar stubs - but they were still good - next time, I'll turn my phyllo around! I actually used dried pineapple and pineapple juice instead of apple, and it was great. Served them with pastries on a breakfast buffet. Thanks for sharing!
