  • ▢ 1 pound gala apples, peeled, cored, and chopped (from 3 large)▢ 3 tablespoons golden raisins▢ 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon▢ 1/4 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt▢ 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar▢ 1 teaspoon cornstarch▢ 8 13 X 9 inch sheets phyllo dough, thawed▢ olive oil spray▢ powdered sugar, for serving


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook the apples, raisins, sugar, cinnamon, and salt, covered until the apples are just beginning to soften, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl.Mix the cornstarch into the apples and stir to evenly coat.Take the phyllo dough out of the packaging and keep covered with a damp kitchen towel.Put one sheet of phyllo dough on your cutting board and spray lightly with oil. Top with another sheet and spray again. Halve the long way so you have two stacks of long, narrow strips.Put 3 tablespoons of the apple filling at one end of a stack. Fold one corner up and over the filling to enclose it in a triangle. Continue folding the triangle over itself (like how you fold a flag) until you reach the other end. Spray the top lightly with oil, then transfer the turnover to the baking sheet, with the seam side down. Repeat with the other stack, then repeat with the remaining phyllo and filling.Bake until the phyllo is golden and crisp, about 30 to 32 minutes.Let cool for at least 10 minutes on the baking sheet, then dust with powdered sugar before serving.
