Grams of fat saved: 25 (8g saturated)
Makes: 6 servings


  • 3 full sheets phyllo dough
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 large apples (2 Granny Smith, 2 red), cored, halved, cut into 1/8-inch slices
  • 1 1/2 cups low-fat vanilla frozen yogurt


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. On a flat surface, stack phyllo sheets, lightly coating the top of each with butter-flavored cooking spray. Cut in half; put one half on top of the other to form a stack of 6 layers. Cut into 6 portions (about 4 1/2 inches square).
  3. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool on pan on rack. Preheat oven to broil.
  4. Mix sugar and cinnamon in bowl; set aside.
  5. Arrange apple slices in two 9-by-13-inch baking pans. Lightly coat slices with cooking spray. Broil for 1 minute. Stir. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Broil for about 1 minute.
  6. To serve, top each phyllo stack with apple mixture and frozen yogurt.
