Crispy Apple Triangles
Yield: About 36 small triangles
While the phyllo dough takes a little patience, this is still an easy dessert that nets elegant results.
Preheat oven to 400º F.
Combine almonds, cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and mix well. With a pastry brush, brush 1 phyllo sheet with butter, then sprinkle with some of the cinnamon mix. Place another phyllo sheet on top of the first.
Cut the phyllo into 3 slices, lengthwise. On the end of each phyllo strip, place 1 big tablespoon of applesauce. Fold the phyllo dough on top of the applesauce, making a triangle. Fold in alternating triangle shapes until the phyllo is wrapped around the applesauce. Brush with butter. Repeat with the other phyllo strips.
Place apple triangles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly golden and crispy.
Serve warm or at room temperature with vanilla ice cream.
