    1      slice         firm-textured white bread

      1/2  cup           golden raisins
    1      tablespoon    fresh lemon juice
    1      teaspoon      grated lemon zest
      1/3  cup           sugar
      3/4  teaspoon      cinnamon
    1 1/2  teaspoons     butter, melted

 Line a 10 x 15-inch jelly roll pan with aluminum foil. Coat foil with
 cooking spray.
 In a food processor, grind bread into fine bread crumbs. Place crumbs in
 a pie plate and toast in oven until golden, about 5 minutes. Watch
 carefully to prevent burning.
 In a large bowl, combine apples, raisins, lemon juice and lemon zest;
 toss to mix. In a small bowl, stir together sugar and cinnamon. In
 another small bowl, combine melted butter and oil.
 Unroll filo and place on a large baking sheet; cover with plastic wrap
 and top with a slightly dampened kitchen towel to prevent filo from
 drying out. Place 1 filo sheet on a sheet of plastic wrap. Using a
 pastry brush, dab with a part of butter-oil mixture; coat with cooking
 spray. Sprinkle with part of bread crumbs. Repeat layering with
 remaining filo, butter- oil mixture, cooking spray and crumbs. Top sheet
 should be brushed with the butter oil mixture and coated with cooking
 Spread apple filling along one long end of dough, leaving a 2- inch
 border along edge and at sides. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar over apples.
 Fold bottom edge up over apple filling; fold in at sides. Starting at
 longer side and using plastic wrap, lift filo and carefully roll up like
 a jelly roll. Place strudel, seam side down, on prepared baking sheet.
 Brush with remaining butter-oil mixture. Coat with cooking spray.
 Bake 15 minutes. REDUCE oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake 15
 minutes longer or until golden.
 Serve warm.
