This is a low-fat version of the classic German dessert. Using butter flavored cooking spray as opposed to real butter helps curb the calories.

1/4 cup raisins
2 tablespoons Amaretto
3 cups Granny Smith apples - coarsely chopped
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon - ground
8 sheets phyllo dough - thawed
butter-flavored cooking spray

Combine raisins and Amaretto in a bowl. Microwave at high setting 1 1/2 minutes; drain well.

Combine raisins, apple, sugar, flour, and cinnamon in a bowl. Toss well, and set aside.

Place 1 phyllo sheet on work surface (cover remaining dough to keep from drying); lightly coat with cooking spray. Working with 1 phyllo sheet at a time, coat remaining 7 phyllo sheets with cooking spray, placing one on top of the other. Place a sheet of plastic wrap over phyllo, pressing gently to seal sheets together; discard plastic wrap.

Spoon apple mixture along 1 long edge of phyllo, leaving a 2-inch border. Fold over the short edges of phyllo to cover 1 inches of apple mixture on each end.

Starting at long edge with 2-inch border, roll up jelly-roll fashion. (Do not roll too tight, or strudel may burst.) Place strudel, seam side down, on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Score diagonal slits into top of strudel using a sharp knife. Lightly spray strudel with cooking spray.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 minutes or until golden brown.
