Apple Turnovers with Apple Caramel Sauce

Phyllo is my new project. Last night I made some phyllo cups and filled them with veggies, tofu and feta cheese. Tonight, I wanted to make a dessert with them, and an apple turnover or tart type dish would be the easiest to try out. This was sort of taken from bits of other recipes I found on various sites like food network and epicurious, but all in all, isn’t that complicated and easy to do for a new phyllo-maniac.
2-3 small red apples (your choice, I used pink ladies) cored, skinned and diced
2 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbl flour
3 Tsp Sugar
2 Tbl margarine
1/8 cup water
6 sheets phyllo dough
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350

Heat margarine in small stock pot. Add apples once margarine has melted, along with the rest of the ingredients. Cook on medium heat until apples begin to sizzle and a nice caramel sauce forms along with apples. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes.

Remove your thawed Phyllo dough sheets and place one on a completely dry surface. Spray lightly with cooking spray. Top with 2nd sheet, repeat. Top with third sheet. Cut into 4 equal rectangles. Place about a tablespoon of the apple mixture, draining as much of the sauce as you can, almost to the corner of one slice. Fold over to form a triangle and continue like you are folding a flag. Repeat for the other three and then again with the other three pieces of phyllo dough.
Place onto a sprayed baking sheet, folded side down to keep closed, and cook for about 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool. Top with leftover apple sauce and mixture and/or ice cream.
