Sweet & Savory Sunday - Easy Phyllo Apple Walnut Rolls

              Hello everyone! I hope you're having a lovely weekend and enjoying some time off as much as I am. It's been snowing for a few days now and I love how relaxed and calm the snowflakes make me feel. Since we spent most of the time outside I needed a quick and easy recipe for an afternoon treat. I had delicious organic apples from my grandmother's farm and immediately thought of Apple Walnut Rolls.

The ingredients:

500 gr phyllo sheets
200 ml vegetable oil
300 ml sparkling mineral water
1 package baking powder
1 kg apples (peeled and grated)
200 gr ground walnuts 
1 tablespoon round cinnamon 
sugar (you can replace it with another sweetener or leave it out altogether) 
powdered sugar for dusting


Mix the oil, sparkling water and baking powder in a cup and set aside. Take a sheet of phyllo dough and brush the oil, water and baking powder mixture over the sheet. Take a second sheet and carefully place it over the first one, brushing it with the mixture. Repeat the procedure with a third phyllo sheet. 
Mix the grated apples with the ground walnuts and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon. Spread the apples at one end of the phyllo sheet. Add sugar or any other sweetener if you decide to use it.

Roll the phyllo sheets and place the roll in a greased baking dish. Repeat the procedure with the leftover phyllo sheets and apple filling.

When the baking dish is full, apply the leftover oil, water and baking powder mixture on each roll. Cut the rolls into smaller pieces and place the pan in a preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius (390 degrees Fahrenheit). Bake for 30 to 45 minutes until the rolls become lightly golden brown. 

Let the rolls cool for a bit and then dust them with some powdered sugar.

There are a number of variations for the apple filling - you could use hazelnuts or almonds instead of walnuts, add raisins, cranberries or any other dried fruit. You could also add ground cookies or biscuits, or even change the apples with cherries or pears. The possibilities are endless but they all yield a super easy and delicious treat for both the kids and the adults in the family.
