  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line baking sheet(s) with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Combine apricots and dates in small saucepan; cover with water and cook over medium heat until fruits are softened, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove fruits from water and chop into small pieces.
  3. Combine dates, apricots, apples, corn syrup, lemon juice, cinnamon and nutmeg in medium bowl; mix well.
  4. Keep phyllo dough moist by covering lightly with a damp (not wet) towel.
  5. Lay one sheet of phyllo dough on dry, flat surface; spray lightly with cooking spray. Top with another sheet of phyllo dough and brush lightly with water. Repeat the process with remaining phyllo sheets alternating with cooking spray and water.
  6. Spoon fruit mixture onto dough; leave a 1-inch border on the sides. Fold in sides and spray lightly with cooking spray to seal. Roll strudel from the bottom up and spray lightly to seal.
  7. Place strudel on baking sheet seam side down; brush top lightly with water and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, until golden brown.
  8. Cool slightly before slicing into 1-inch pieces. Strudel can be frozen up to 6 months. Thaw at room temperature before serving.
