  • TotalTime: 60 Mins


  1. 1 (21 ounce) can apple pie filling
  2. 1 cup walnuts (chopped)
  3. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  4. 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  5. 9 sheets frozen filo dough (thawed)
  6. 1/3 cup butter (melted)
  7. 1/4 cup sugar
  8. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 F.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, remove the apples from the pie filling, discarding much of the thick liquid. Place the apples in a medium bowl; then stir in walnuts, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and lemon zest.
  4. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and mix well.
  5. On a work surface, place one sheet of filo dough. Brush with some of the melted butter and sprinkle with a generous teaspoon of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Repeat layers, using all of the filo dough.
  6. Spoon apple filling across one long end of the filo stack, leaving a 2-inch border along one long edge and the sides. Brush edges around the apple filling with butter.
  7. Fold in the side edges, then roll up filo dough, enclosing the filling. Brush edge with butter and seal. Brush butter over the entire roll.
  8. Using two spatulas, carefully place the roll on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  9. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown and crisp. Cool on pan for 10 minutes, then using two spatulas, remove to a wire rack to cool.
  10. Serve warm and enjoy!
