Apple Cinnamon Rolls




Grab yourself a cup of coffee and relax, we're making Apple Cinnamon Rolls.   To Read More, Click On The Recipe Title.


I've made Cinnamon Rolls and Sticky Buns ...but never Apple Cinnamon Rolls. It's fall and I have apples on the brain. Apples, apples , apples!! This is made with yeast, wait , wait don't get nervous, it was easy.
Now the Apple Cinnamon Rolls.... This going to be my entry for Yeastspotting, a weekly showcase of yeast baked goods and dishes with bread as the main ingredient.



See that nice fluffy Apple Cinnamon Roll? You can have this, I'm gonna show you how.

The apple filling.

I made this first earlier in the morning so I was all set when I made the dough.
Combine 2 large cooking apples, chopped; 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, 3/4 cup sugar, and 1/4 cup butter or margarine in medium saucepan; bring to a boil over medium high heat. Cook 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium low; cook 10 minutes, stirring constantly until thick. Stir in 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg. Cool completely.

It came together very fast and it was YUMMY!!

The dough.

In your Kitchen Aid bowl or a large bowl your going to combine :
1 cup of flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 pkgs RapidRise yeast
and 1 tsp salt

In a saucepan your going to heat :
1/2 cup of water
1/2 cup milk
and 1/4 cup of butter to about 120 degrees.

I went for my thermometer to check the temperature and it was broke! I just heated the mixture till it was very warm, not HOT. After this is warm enough your going to add this to the flour mixture in your KA. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add eggs and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes. This was a sticky dough, I floured my counter and hands and it turned into a very nice soft elastic smooth dough. It was very easy to work with.

Your going to divide the dough into 2 equal portions. Roll each portion into a 12 x 8-inch rectangle.

Then your going to spread the apple filling you made on top. Remember your making 2 rolls so divide it up equally.


Picture 879

Roll it up jellyroll style, starting with the long end and slice it into 12 pieces, I only got 8 slices. I guess I got carried away!


Picture 885

Put them into a greased 9 inch pan, cover them and let them sit in a nice warm place until they rise...about an hour.

Picture 887

Look how nice they rose up. Now your going to sprinkle them with the cinnamon - sugar mixture and bake.


Picture 890

Yes they're going to be covered in the cinnamon sugar, I was thinking it was almost too much but oh no ... it was just enough. After this is baked and you turn it out of the pan some of the sugar will come off, but don't worry, there's plenty that stays put too!





Trust me you need this!



My son Matt and I decided to take it up a notch and drizzle some caramel ice cream topping on it...talk about taking it over the top!

5 to 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 envelopes FLEISCHMANN'S RapidRise Yeast

In large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt. Heat water, milk, and butter until very warm (120oF to 130oF). Gradually add to flour mixture.

Cut each roll into 12 equal pieces. Place, cut sides up, in greased 9-inch round pans. Cover, let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.

OMG...Hot cinnamon rolls.....arrrrrggggggghhh (drool)! I read once that the scent of cinnamon rolls was a male aphrodesiac! I guess Pillsbury was right: "Nothin' says lovin' like something from the oven!" HAHA!
