1 t. ground cinnamon
1 3/4 t sugar

Mix bread crumbs and 1/4 c. butter in a bowl. Mix in ground walnuts, apples, cinnamon and sugar.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Adjust oven rack to the lower middle position. Lightly butter a rimmed baking sheet.
On a large, lightly floured surface stretch and roll the dough into a large, very thin rectangle, about 20 x 12″. Brush with approximately 1/2 c butter. Spread bread crumbs mixture across the dough, leave a 2 ” border on all sides.
Fold the sort ends of the dough over the apples and then fold the end closest to you over the apples and continue to roll. Do not make it too tight.
Bake according to dough directions – or until lightly browned.byDeborahon
