    1.5 WW points per serving

    2 1/4 cups peeled, chopped cooking apples (about 3/4 pound)
    1 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
    1/4 cup granulated sugar
    1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    10 sheets frozen phyllo pastry, thawed
    Vegetable cooking spray

    Combine apple and lemon juice in a small bowl; toss gently. Add sugar, flour and next 3 ingredients; toss well and set aside.

    Spray 1 phyllo sheet at a time with cooking spray, and cut each sheet lengthwise into 4 (3 1/4-inch wide) strips. Stack 2 strips, 1 on top of the other. Spoon 1 heaping tablespoon apple mixture onto 1 end of each strip, and spread to within 1 inch of end; fold the left bottom corner over mixture, forming a triangle. Keep folding back and forth into a triangle to end of strip. Repeat procedure with remaining ingredients. Place the triangles, seam-side down, on a baking sheet. Lightly spray tops with cooking spray. Bake at 400 degrees F for 7 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.

    Makes 20 turnovers.
