To prepare filling, mix apples, cranberries, sugar & spice.

Prepare pastry. In a small bowl, lightly beat egg white, oil & salt. Lay a sheet of  phyllo pastry on the work surface and, using a pastry brush, lightly coat the surface of the sheet with the oil/egg mixture.  Sprinkle evenly with ½ tsp breadcrumbs.  Repeat this step layering all the sheets of phyllo pastry on top.

Spread the apple mixture along one end of the dough. Lift edges of dough near apples and roll over to form a roll.
