Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies. Mother Teresa
Today’s recipe is one I’ve shared before. I changed it to include apples, my daughter’s requested creation! I am pleased with the results! These make a delicious breakfast treat or dessert and they make a great gift as well! ENJOY!

Apple Cinnamon Rolls

4 to 4 1/2 cups flour

1 package yeast

1 cup milk

1/3 cup sugar

1/3 cup butter

2 eggs

pinch of salt

Combine 2 cups flour with the yeast. Heat the milk, sugar and butter until warm, stirring constantly. My trick is when it is too hot to stick your finger in it, it is done! Add milk mixture to the flour, stir. Then stir in another cup of flour, then add the eggs. Stir until combined then add in another cup of flour, mix well. Place the 1/2 cup flour on a board or your counter and knead the dough into the flour until smooth and elastic. Cover with a damp paper towel and allow to rise 1 hour. The dough should double in size.

Cooked Apples:

2 apples peeled and chopped small

1/4 cup water

sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg

Place all the ingredients in a small saucepan and cook on a low simmer for 10 minutes until the apples are soft. Allow to cool while the dough rises.


1 cup sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

combine in a bowl..

You will also need 3 TBSP melted butter

Once dough has risen divide in two. Roll out onto the counter (I do NOT use flour here, it should not stick to the counter at this point). Spread with half the melted butter then sprinkle with half the sugar mixture and half the apples. Roll up lengthwise like a jelly roll and cut into 8 pieces. Place in a greased baking pan and repeat with other half of dough. Cover with a damp paper towel and allow to rise for 30 minutes. Before baking I insert a half a pecan in the top. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes. YUM! ENJOY!
