DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl combine 3 cups of flour and all yeast; set aside.
  • In a saucepan, heat and stir milk, 1/4 cup butter, the granulated sugar and 1 1/2 tsp salt until warm. Add to flour mixture, then add egg.
  • Beat with a mixer, scraping sides of bowl. Beat on high 3 minutes. Using a wooden spoon, add as much of remaining flour as you can.
  • Turn dough out onto floured surface, kneading until smooth and elastic. Shape dough into bowl and place in greased bowl, then cover and let rise until double in size (45-60 min).
  • For filling, melt remaining butter, stir in brown sugar and 2 tsp cinnamon. Stir in chopped apple and apple butter. Set aside.
  • Punch down dough and turn onto floured surface. Divide dough in half and left rest 10 minutes. Roll each half into a rectangle, spread half the filling onto each.
  • Starting from short side, roll into a log and pinch seams. Cut into six 2-inch pieces.
  • Place all pieces in a greased 9x13 pan, cover and let rise for 30 to 40 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Combine powdered sugar and enough apple juice to be able to drizzle over slightly cooled rolls.
