Imagine sinking your teeth into tender slices of juicy apples, complemented by the fragrant apricots and a crispy dough topping.

The secret to this tasty dessert lies in the aromatic filling of apples and apricots.

And here’s a little tip – you can use ready-made apricots or even peaches in syrup, or opt for fresh fruits that are in season.

And if you prefer a filling without apricots, just stick to apples – it will still be incredibly tasty!

The key is to briefly cook the apples with sugar and butter on the stove, allowing the slices to become soft, sweet, and juicy with a hint of creaminess.

Don’t worry if you don’t have Filo dough on hand, as you can easily substitute it with puff pastry or regular pita bread.

For the puff pastry option, simply cut a circle to fit your mold, prick it with a fork, and cover the apple filling with it.

This will create a mouthwatering combination of apples and apricots with a flaky puff pastry cap on top.

Alternatively, you can easily tear or cut the pita bread into large pieces, grease them with melted butter, and place them on top of the apples.

Give this dessert a try, it surely worth it!
