  4. Generously brush filo pastry sheets with butter.
  5. Spread apple mixture over pastry sheet.
  6. Alternate with two layers of filo pastry for every layer of apple mixture.

Notes, tips and variationsEdit

  • For more tartness, substitute for 3 red apples and 1 green apple.
  • If you are unable to obtain ground cinnamon, substitute for cinnamon powder.
