This spiralized apple filo pastry was conjured up by thinking of how to make a really simple, cheap festive dessert.

Here’s what I came up with but it’s also a dessert that is suitable for all year round.

Plus, it is delicious cold too. Kind of like a Danish pastry, you know?

Simple Spiralized Apple Filo Pastry

There’s no need to spend ages in the kitchen laboriously making puff pastry here either (unless you want to!).

Just buy the lowest fat version of puff pastry you can get.

Then, use spiralized granny smith apples as their sweetness means only having to add the smallest amount of sugar to the recipe to have the right balance of sweet and savory.

The combination of the drizzled sugar syrup with the cinnamon adds the perfect seasonal touch, not to mention those delicious festive aromas in your kitchen whilst it’s baking!

Serve with some vanilla ice cream or creme fraiche if served hot or eat as it is if served cold.

Who would have thought a spiralizer is so versatile that you can actually make a dessert recipe from it too?

It was last Christmas that I got my spiralizer and since I published my first spiralizer recipe, the Spiralized Courgette Spaghetti with Chickpeas, I’ve been loving it!

Why I Recommend Getting A Spiralizer

If you need a little more persuasion as to the reasons for getting a spiralizer, here’s just some of the many benefits :-

  • Use a spiralizer to make veggie noddles which means you’re consuming fewer calories and carbs.
  • Veggie noddles help to get more vegetables into your diet (more towards your 5 a-day and into kids diets too!)
  • You’ll save money because veggies and fruits are often cheaper than meat.
  • Spiralizing suits ALL kinds of lifestyles (80/20, vegetarian, vegan, paleo, low-carb, and gluten-free).
  • It’s quick and easy – spiralized foods cook quickly and don’t require the chopping / prep other foods do!

      It’s amazing what happens when you’re under pressure to put together a quick dessert!

      And, it had to be one where I used my spiralizer. The poor spiralizer was beginning to think it wasn’t good enough for anything else but veggies. Ah, but now it’s shown us!

      Life is so busy Suz. Busy but good! Still spiralizing and cooking away. When I’m not working 10 hour days……….

  4. seriously love the use of spiralized apples in this! This also reminds me that i need to get a new one because mine broke 🙁
