Low Fat Pear Cranberry Strudel Recipes

This pear-cranberry strudel makes a great holiday or weeknight dessert. The beauty of phyllo, or filo, dough is that it's low fat, has no saturated or trans fat, and no cholesterol, making it a terrfic alternative to regular pastry. It's light, crisp and flaky, and so long as you use butter-flavored cooking spray between layers rather than real melted butter, it's a perfect low fat choice for pies, tarts and, of course, strudels.
