Easy Apple Strudel Pie

Ingredients

  • 5-6 Medium 5-6 Yellow Delicious Apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons warm water
  • 1 (roll) (most brands of phyllo dough contain 2 rolls of dough)
  • non-stick spray (butter type)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

Directions

Step 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Step 2 Coat a 9-inch pie plate or pastry tart pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Step 3 Peel and core apples thinly and place them in a bowl of cold water with the juice of 1/2 a lemon.
Step 4 Combine apples, sugar, cinnamon, lemon and flour in a large bowl and set aside.
Step 5 In a small bowl, mix honey with warm water.
Step 6 Unroll the dough very carefully, trying not to tear dough sheets.
Step 7 Working quickly, lay the phyllo dough sheets over the pie plate with the dough edges overhanging evenly on each side. Spray dough with nonstick butter spray and brush the dough with the honey mixture.
Step 8 Spraying each layer of dough with non-stick spray and brushing with honey turning each sheet of dough 1-2" creating a fan effect covering the bottom of the pie pan to prevent any liquid from seeping out. Continue until all but a few sheets remain (about 5 dough sheets).
Step 9 Add the apple mixture into the pie plate. Place 4-5 small pats of butter over the apples for added flavor.
Step 10 Gather overhanging phyllo sheets up to the center of the pie.
Step 11 (Optional) Add the remaining 5 phyllo dough sheets over any open areas of the pie to cover. I gathered the dough loosely to create folds for added texture.
Step 12 Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the temperature reaches 175 degrees. Or, until filling bubbles.
Step 13 Cool to room temperature, or overnight. Do not refrigerate of the dough will become soggy.
