These hand-held cups not only take less time to make than a full-size strudel but also result in less mess for guests. Use sweet-tart baking apples for the best flavour.

  • Prep time 20 minutes
  • Total time 1 hour & 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 4 baking apples (such as Northern Spy, Braeburn, Gala or Golden Delicious), peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup ground almonds
  • 1/4 cup liquid honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • pinch salt
  • 4 sheets frozen phyllo pastry , thawed
  • 2 teaspoons icing sugar

Method

In large skillet, melt half of the butter over medium heat; cook apples, stirring often, until tender, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in almonds, honey, lemon juice and salt. Scrape into bowl; refrigerate until lukewarm, about 20 minutes.

In small microwaveable bowl, microwave remaining butter until melted. Place 1 sheet of the phyllo on work surface; keep remaining sheets covered with damp towel (to prevent drying out). Lightly brush phyllo with some of the remaining butter. Top with second sheet of the phyllo; lightly brush with some of the remaining butter. Repeat with remaining phyllo and some of the remaining butter. Halve layers lengthwise; cut crosswise into thirds to make 6 squares.

Press 1 square into bottom and up side of each well of 6-count muffin pan, leaving overhang. Divide apple mixture among cups; fold overhang over top of filling. Brush tops of phyllo with remaining butter. Bake in 350°F oven until golden, 28 to 30 minutes. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes; transfer to serving plates. Dust with icing sugar.

Makes 6 pieces.
