|Apple Cinnamon Rolls|
My daughter absolutely loves cinnamon rolls and asks for them almost every morning (no, she doesn't get them). She is also my toughest critic, her compliments always mean so much to me because she is so honest. She was half way through her second cinnamon roll this morning when she said "Ohhh I'm full, but I don't ever want to stop eating this!" She made me swear I would leave her cinnamon roll for her and not let anyone else eat it, so that she could finish it later. She has also requested that this be the recipe I use from now on, as did my husband. Success!!!!
Apple Cinnamon Rolls
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
1 large granny smith apple, peeled and coarsely grated
1/2 cup milk
1/2 tsp vanilla
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix well. Cut in butter until mixture resembles small crumbs. Add grated apple, vanilla and milk. Mix with a fork just until dough starts to form. The key to nice pastry is not to over mix, or over knead the dough.
Turn dough out onto floured surface. Knead about 10 times, until dough holds together nicely.
Add more flour to the surface. Roll out into a rectangle about 15"x11". Prepare filling.
