Ingredients
  • 1   cup 
    chopped, peeled apple or pear
  • 2   tablespoons 
    raisins or snipped apricots
  • 1   tablespoon 
    granulated sugar
  • 1   teaspoon 
    all-purpose flour
  • 1   teaspoon 
    lemon juice
  • 1/2  teaspoon 
    ground cinnamon
  •  
    Dash ground nutmeg
  • 3   sheets 
    frozen phyllo dough (17x12-inch rectangles), thawed
  •  
    Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/4  cup 
    sifted powdered sugar
  • 1   teaspoon 
    fat-free milk
Directions
1.
For filling, in a small mixing bowl combine apple or pear, raisins or apricots, granulated sugar, flour, lemon juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside. Unfold phyllo dough. Place one sheet of phyllo dough on a cutting board. Spray with nonstick spray. Repeat layering and spraying remaining phyllo, keeping phyllo covered with a damp cloth, and removing only one sheet at a time. Using a sharp knife, cut the stack lengthwise into 4 strips.
2.
For each turnover, spoon about one-fourth of the filling about 1 inch from the end of each strip. Fold the end over the filling at a 45 angle. Continue folding to form a triangle that encloses the filling, using the entire strip. Repeat with remaining strips of phyllo and filling. Spray tops with nonstick cooking spray.
3.
Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. Place triangles on the baking sheet. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 15 minutes or until golden.
4.
For glaze, in a small bowl combine powdered sugar and milk. Drizzle over warm turnovers. Serve warm or cool. Makes 4 servings.
