Rhubarb-Apple Crisp

The beehive of phyllo only looks like a lot of work. In reality, it might be the easiest phyllo dessert you’ll make.

Makes: 8 servings; Total time: 2 hours

COMBINE:
66cups sliced rhubarb (about 1¾ lb.)
11gala or fuji apple, cored and diced (about 1 cup)
232/3cup granulated sugar
33Tbsp. instant tapioca
22Tbsp. orange juice
11211/2tsp. pumpkin pie spice
PLACE:
77sheets phyllo dough
141/4cup unsalted butter, melted
77tsp. granulated sugar
33Tbsp. sliced almonds
22Tbsp. turbinado or finishing sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°.

Combine rhubarb, apple, ⅔ cup granulated sugar, tapioca, orange juice, and pie spice in a large bowl. Mix well and let stand 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste filling; add more sugar if too tart. Pour fruit into a 9-inch pie plate.

Place a sheet of phyllo on a flat surface (cover other sheets with a damp paper towel to keep them from drying). Lightly brush phyllo sheet with butter and sprinkle with 1 tsp. granulated sugar. Roll phyllo into a loose tube about 2 inches in diameter. Repeat with remaining phyllo sheets. Starting at outer edge of pie, lightly place phyllo tubes end to end in spiral or concentric pattern. Drizzle any remaining butter over phyllo and sprinkle with almonds and finishing sugar.

Bake crisp until golden brown, about 1 hour. Let crisp cool for 15 minutes before serving.
