2 to 4 whole cloves
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1 1/2 Tablespoons of plain low-fat yogurt
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon
8 sheets of phyllo dough
2 Tablespoons margarine, melted
* Combine cooled apples with walnuts, yogurt, sugar and cinnamon. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
* Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Brush the surface of a nonporous surface(such as formica) with margarine using a pastry brush. Place 4 sheets of phyllo dough on the surface to form a rectangle, overlapping pieces by about 4 inches in the center. Lightly brush dough again with margarine.
* Spread half of the apple mixture over the dough, leaving an inch on all 4 sides. With scissors or a knife, make diagonal slashes about 1/2 inch deep and wide. Carefully, tuck in the ends and starting at one end fold the side strips
over each other in a woven manner. Brush with well beaten egg added to remaining margarine to seal and help with browning.
* Repeat assembly procedure with remaining 4 sheets of phyllo and apple mixture.Transfer both strudels to a cookie sheet, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Bake until golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 10-one inch servings.
