Made these for dessert for our Sunday dinner. I had never worked with phyllo pastry before and had a fun time with my son making this yummy dessert. Like the other reviewer said, whats not to like with this recipe. I really liked the filling, before it was even cooked in the phyllo pastry, could eat it all on its own. Thanks for a great recipe JackieMarie.
I may be biased because I love caramel apple anything, but these were lovely! The phyllo wasn't nearly as difficult to work with as I was expecting, which was nice. I only had small apples, so I used three Gala and three Golden Delicious. I used The Best Caramel Sauce in the World for the caramel sauce. I drizzled the baked pastries with a little honey to moisten them (I didn't have any more caramel sauce left or I would have used that). I didn't have any ice cream on hand, but I definitely think these would be wonderful with ice cream (maybe even with ice cream and a bit of cider sauce). I think I could have just eaten the filling mixture with a spoon, the heck with the phyllo! I might even try the filling sometime in little graham tart crusts or something. Oh, and just so you know, the rolls were pretty big (I would probably go so far as to say that each roll would serve two people), so the nutrition facts per serving are most likely not nearly as scary as they look here. Great recipe, thanks for posting!
