Pear Craisin Strudel

contributed by Deb Reno

Place a sheet of phyllo on a greased cookie sheet & spray with buttery Pam.

Repeat until you have 6 layers of phyllo.

In a bowl, combine:

4 pear halves, roughly chopped

1/2 c. craisins

2 T. sugar

1/2 t. cinnamon

1/4 t. nutmeg

1/3 c. walnut pieces.

Spoon this mixture along the long side of the phyllo.

Roll the phyllo up like a burrito, tucking ends in as you roll.

Bake at 350°, 25 minutes.

To serve, I spread a small dollop of some ‘strawbanero’ (hot pepper jelly) on a plate.

Then I zig-zagged some chocolate syrup over that & dragged a fork through it to make it look fancy!

I sliced the strudel into 12 pieces & placed three on each plate.

Topped it with another drizzle of the jelly & put dollops of vanilla yogurt around the edge of the plate.

I SO regret not photographing it .  It was almost as pretty as it tasted…
