The challenge for this week 1/31/12 in Sherri's sandwich group is making a recipe where everything starts with the letter "F". This is my entry. I wanted to make a dessert sammie to satisfy my sweet tooth. So I created this yummy pin wheel dessert. My family all loves it when I make desserts, which isn't often enough anymore, as far as they are concerned...but as far as my hips are concerned, I bake way too often. LOL! This was so freekin' good. Enjoy!

1
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Peel & core apples and crack filberts. Chop both finely in food processor. In pyrex bowl stir together the apple mixture, fruictose, honey, flour, flax seed, salt. Cook in microwave for about 6 minutes until apples are almost tender. Let mixture chill for about 20 minutes.

Crush cereal, melt butter and unwrap filo. Cover dough with plastic wrap and a damp towel while you are working with it. Cut the 12"x 16" rectangle of filo sheets in half, making 2 stacks of 8"x 12". On a parchment lined cookie sheet, start stacking the sheets and brushing butter between sheets, sprinkling each layer with some of the crushed frosted flakes. When u have made about 8 layers, spread 1/2 of the apple filling to the edges of filo and roll up, jelly roll fashion from the 12" side. Brush with butter and set aside. Repeat directions and make a second roll. Brush with butter and bake for about 35 minutes until light golden brown. Let cool before slicing. This would be yummy served with frozen yogurt. Enjoy!
