  • 3 x 40g pkts sesame snaps, coarsely broken
  • 5 apples, peeled, cored, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 215g (1 cup) caster sugar

    Combine the apple and lemon juice in a heatproof bowl. Stir the sugar and water in a saucepan over low heat until the sugar dissolves, brushing down sides of pan with a pastry brush dipped in water to remove any sugar crystals. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to the boil. Cook, without stirring, for 10-15 minutes or until golden.

    Pour over the apples (it will harden immediately but return to liquid on standing). Set aside for 2 hours, stirring occasionally, to develop the flavours.

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a large baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Place filo on a clean work surface. Cover with a dry tea towel, then a damp tea towel. Spray 1 filo sheet with oil. Top with another filo sheet and spray with oil. Repeat with remaining filo sheets and oil spray to make a stack.

    Strain the apples, reserving the toffee mixture. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the filo stack. Place the apple mixture along 1 long edge. Fold in the sides and roll up to enclose the filling. Place, seam-side down, on the prepared tray. Spray with oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 30 minutes or until golden.
