Prep: 0:20 Mins
Cook: 0:25 Mins
- 3 Golden Delicious apples, peeled, cored, thinly sliced
- 680g btl morello cherries, drained
- 100g (1/2 cup) caster sugar
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons kirsch (optional)
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Melted butter, to grease
- 10 sheets filo pastry
- 60g butter, melted
- 100g pkt almond meal
- Pure icing sugar, to dust
- Whipped cream, to serve
Combine the apple, cherries, sugar, lemon juice, kirsch and cinnamon in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Set aside for 2 hours to macerate. Drain.
Preheat oven to 180C. Lightly brush a baking tray with butter. Place the filo on a clean work surface. Cover with a dry tea towel, then a damp tea towel (this prevents it drying out). Brush 1 filo sheet with melted butter. Top with another filo sheet. Brush with melted butter. Repeat with melted butter and remaining filo. Sprinkle with the almond meal. Place the filling along 1 long side, leaving a 6cm-wide border at each end. Fold in the ends and roll up firmly to enclose. Place, seam-side-down, on the prepared tray. Brush with remaining butter.
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden. Dust with icing sugar. Serve with whipped cream.
