DIRECTIONS

  • Peel, core and dice apples.
  • Place them in a saucepan with sugar and lemon zest.
  • Drizzle the lemon juice over.
  • Bring to a boil, stirring well and then cook for 5 minutes or until apples are soft.
  • Stir in the golden raisins and cinnamon.
  • Pour mixture into a 5 cup pie dish.
  • Level top with a spoon and let cool.
  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • Place a pie funnel in the center of the fruit.
  • (alternately, insert several pieces of macaroni or penne pasta.) The function of this is to let the steam that builds up under your crust vent.
  • Brush each sheet of phyllo with melted butter then scrunch up loosely and place over fruit to cover.
  • Bake 20-30 minutes until crust is golden.
  • Dust with powdered sugar and serve with custard or ice cream if desired.
