Having a quiet Easter at home today and decided to use up some fillo pastry.  I have been able to get non frozen pastry lately and find its much better than the frozen.  This idea could be used with a savoury type filling.  I used three sheets per roll and they held up ok but if you had more sheets maybe use 5 or smaller filling and more rolls.  Easily adaptable to taste.  Dried fruit is liked in this household and it does contain some peel.  An option would be to use sultanas and fresh lemon zest but I didnt have any available.  My challenge was to see if it baked ok in the BabyQ and it did.

Apple Strudel Rolls from
  Carolyns Outdoor Cooking In Oz

800g Tin Sliced Pie Apples (about four cups)
1 Tablespoon Raw Sugar
1/2 cup mixed fruit
1 Tablespoon cornflour
1 Teaspoon cinnamon
1 pinch of cloves

1/2 cup melted butter
12 sheets Fillo pastry

Preheat BabyQ 

Line tray with Baking Paper 

1/2 cup Almond flakes for top

Mix first six items together
Lay out pastry and brush each sheet with melted butter - in the Youtube I used 3 sheets per roll.
Place filling at one end leaving about 3cm all around
Roll from bottom then sides then to the end of the pastry
Cook for about 25 minutes in 400F -  I used foil under a trivet.
