Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Apples are in season this time of the year, what better than to bake some warm and delicious cinnamon rolls with chopped apples! hmm, walnut maybe an excellent additional too if you have some handy in your pantry.

So here it is....

1/4 cup warm water
1 Tb yeast

1 1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup flour

3 2/3 cup flour
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup oil

brown sugar
1 apple, chopped in tiny pieces.
walnut (optional)

In a mixer, drop in warm water and sprinkle yeast over warm water, let sit for 10-15 mins, this will turn foamy.

In a small sauce pan, heat milk and stir in 1/3 cup flour. Stirring continously until flour comes together and begins to thicken. Turn off heat, stir in sugar and oil. Let this batter sits and cool but still warm.

Add warm batter into the mixer, turn on mixer in low speed, adding in one cup of flour at time.
Continue to mix till dough is well incorporated, turn off mixer.
Using your hand, fold & knead dough for 2 or 3 mins. Fold dough into a nice ball and put dough in a dry bowl or same mixer bowl and let rest for at least an hour.

Dough should rise double in size, punch down & fold dough together.
Divide dough into 2.
On one piece of dough, roll out thinly, spread chopped apples, spread evenly brown sugar and sprinkle cinnamon.
Wrap dough into a long log, cut into 12 pieces. Each piece should look a ring with oozing apples and brown sugar. Lay pieces on baking sheet (lined with parchment paper, do not use waxed paper).

Repeat the same on the second dough.
Bake at 350F for 25 minutes.
Optional, dap top of each roll with cream cheese icing while rolls are still warm.
