Fixing something light in my house does not get eaten to often but my grandson and son scarfed these down. The filo dough gets a little crispy and the apples are so soft and sweet and with the crispy dough tastes great. Filo dough alone is kind of bland but with the sprinkle of sugar or splenda mixed with the cinnamon on the top...oh wow it is such a treat. Guaranteed you will love it. Only 130 calories per dumpling.

Just an FYI for those of you who have not used Filo dough and are making more than your muffin tins hold, cover the dough as it dries out very fast.
