Apple Cinnamon Rolls



1 C       Whole milk

2/3 C     Granulated sugar

1.5 Tbs   Yeast (2 standard size 

1/2 C     Butter. (Unsalted, softened,      
          and cut into pieces)

2         Eggs-large, at room temp

1/2 tsp   Salt

4.5 C     All-purpose Flour


6 Tbs     Butter, softened 

1/2 C     Brown Sugar (packed)

1 Tbs     Rae and Ryan’s Apple            

2 C      Apples (about 2 medium apples)
         Chopped, peeled, and cored


1 C       Confectioner's sugar

1/2 tsp   Vanilla extract, pure

2-3 Tbs   Milk
Make the dough:
Heat milk to about 95°F. Do not heat the milk
too hot or you will kill the yeast. Pour the
warm milk into the bowl of a stand electric
mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment
(OR you can use a handheld mixer OR no mixer,
but a stand mixer is ideal).

Whisk in the sugar and yeast.
Cover with a towel and let sit until the
yeast is foamy, about 5-10 minutes.
On low speed, beat in the softened butter
until it is slightly broken up.

Next add the eggs, one at a time, and then
the salt. On low speed, gradually add the flour.
Once it is all added, beat on medium speed
until a soft dough forms. Increase speed to
medium-high and beat until the dough is soft
and supple, about 6 minutes longer.
*If you do not have a stand-mixer with a hook
attachment, knead the dough by hand in this step.

Transfer the dough to a lightly floured
surface and knead it with your hands for
1 minute longer. Form the dough into a ball
and transfer it to a lightly greased bowl.
Cover the dough loosely with plastic wrap or
a towel and let sit in a warm place until
doubled in size, about 1 to 2 hours.

Grease the bottom and sides of a 9×13 inch
baking dish. Turn the risen dough out onto a
lightly floured work surface, punch it down
and, using a rolling pin, roll into a 12×18
inch rectangle. Make sure the dough is smooth
and evenly thick.

Fill the rolls:
Spread the softened butter all over the dough.
Evenly spread the brown sugar over the dough.
In a small bowl, toss apples and spices
together until combined and then sprinkle
evenly over the dough. Top evenly with seasoned
apples. Tightly roll up the dough to form a
long log. Cut into 15 equal rolls.
Arrange them in the prepared baking pan.
Cover the rolls.
Allow rolls to rise in a warm environment again
for about 45-60 minutes or until doubled in size.

Bake the rolls:
Preheat the oven to 375°F.
Bake rolls for about 25 minutes until they are
golden brown. Remove pan from the oven and allow
to cool for 5 minutes. Whisk all of the icing
ingredients together and drizzle over warm rolls.
