There is nothing like the sounds and smells of autumn.
My sister has this great rule about autumn baking and despite all of the pumpkin love, I follow it: apple before pumpkin.
So we've been eating lots of apple stuff; the kids and I invented these yummies yesterday.
Did you know you can make cinnamon rolls out of regular bread dough? It's so easy. . . and if you don't make bread you can use Rhodes frozen dough.
Anyway, we used a loaf portion of whole wheat bread dough, rolled it out and added caramel apple stuff. (recipe follows.)
(There aren't any left.)
Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls
One loaf portion bread dough, rolled into 12 x 18 rectangle
2 T. butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 T. cinnamon
1 granny smith apple, peeled and chopped fine
4 T. caramel dip (like T. Marzetti's)
for frosting: I just use canned cream cheese frosting
Spread butter on dough, sprinkle on the following ingredients in order, dropping the caramel dip in dollops. Roll up jelly roll style, pinching the edges to seal. Cut with thread into slices and let rise in 9" round buttered pan.
Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. Let cool for ten minutes and frost with cream cheese frosting.
