1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon butter
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
3 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 tablespoon water
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Honey Is One of the Oldest Foods
Honey is one of the oldest foods in existence. It was found in the tomb of King Tut and was still edible since honey never spoils.
Saute apples slices in oil and butter for 3 minutes. Add honey, water and cinnamon. Saute over medium low heat another 3-5 minutes until apples are golden. Stir in raisins, remove from heat. Let apples cool completely.
In a medium bowl mix together flour, salt and sugar. Using a pastry cutter or two knives cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles a coarse meal. Add water and mix with a fork until dough forms. Gather into a ball and let rest for 5 minutes.
On a lightly floured surface roll dough into an 8 X 12-inch rectangle. Spoon cooled filling down the long edge and carefully roll dough over the filling, sealing edges and ends of roll. Place seam side down on prepared baking sheet. Brush top with beaten egg white and sprinkle with sugar.
Bake 35-40 minutes until top is golden. Remove from oven. Let cool 15 minutes before slicing.
