Ingredients

1 cup  seedless raisins
0.3333 cup  chopped walnuts
8 each  phyllo pastry dough sheet
1 each  butter flavored cooking spray
0 1/2 cup  honey
2 tsp  ground cinnamon
0 1/2 oz  light unsalted stick margarine
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the raisins and nuts in a small bowl.
  2. Lightly spray every other sheet of phyllo with cooking spray, stacking all the sheets. Spread the raisin-nut mixture over the phyllo, leaving a 1-inch border on all sides. Drizzle with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon.
  3. Starting on a long side, roll lengthwise, jelly-roll fashion. Place the roll with seam side down on a nonstick baking sheet, tucking the ends of the roll under.
  4. Brush the top lightly with the margarine, then cut shallow slashes through the pastry to the raisin-nut mixture at 1½-inch intervals so steam can escape.
  5. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until light golden-brown. Slice the pastry, using the vent lines as guides.
