Apple strudel (serves 4-6)

¼ cup chopped walnuts
4 sheets filo pastry
~1 tablespoon skim milk
1 tablespoon icing sugar

3. Brush a sheet of filo very lightly with milk, and top with another sheet. Brush this sheet and top with the next one, then brush this sheet and top with the fourth one - but do not brush the top sheet! Lay the pastry out with the long edges at the front and back and short edges at the sides.
