1. Place the apples, sugar and lemon zest in a pan, cover and simmer gently for 5-10 minutes until soft and pulpy. Stir in the raisins and leave to cool.
2. Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 5/190C/fan oven 170C. Lay out the filo sheets on a board and cut each in half to make 2 squares. Lay out 1 square and brush with melted Benecol® Buttery Taste Spread. Top with 3 more squares, brushing each with the buttery as you go.
3. Spoon in a quarter of the apple mixture and then fold or scrunch up the pastry to make a parcel. Place on a non-stick baking tray and brush all over with the buttery and sprinkle with the sugar and cinnamon mixture. Repeat to make 4 parcels in total.
4. Bake the parcels for 25-30 minutes until golden and crisp. Serve warm with a scoop of sorbet.
