 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4      large         apples
      1/2  cup           sugar
    1      teaspoon      cinnamon
      3/4  cup           seedless raisins
      1/4  cup           almond slivers
      1/2  cup           butter -- melted
    4      sheets        phyllo dough
    2      tablespoons   bread crumbs
 
      Peel, core, and finely chop apples. Mix with sugar, spices, raisins,
 nuts, and 2 tablespoons melted butter.
      Unwrap phyllo dough and keep between two dampened tea towels. Place one
 sheet of dough on a third tea towel. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle
 with bread crumbs. Place second sheet of phyllo on top of first, brush with
 butter, and sprinkle with crumbs. Repeat with remaining sheets of phyllo.
      Spread apple filling, about two inches in, along one long side of dough,
 to within two inches of each edge. Filling should be spread about three inches
 wide. Fold long side over once to cover filling, then fold in edges. Continue
 to roll lengthwise, like a jelly roll, using towel to help.
      Brush each roll with butter, and place, seam side down, on a lightly
 buttered baking sheet. Bake at 400 degrees about 20-25 minutes, until golden.
 Remove from oven and score top into 1-1/2 slices with a sharp knife. Cool and
 cut into slices.
