1/2 c water, lukewarm
6 T honey
12 T unsalted butter, cut in bits
1 c skim milk, scalded
4 eggs, rm temp
1 t salt
2 t vanilla

1 c white flour
3 T melted butter
1 cup chopped apple
1/2 c brown sugar
3 t cinnamon

Recipe Directions for Cinnamon Sweet Rolls

  1. Sprinkle yeast over the lukewarm water, stir to dissolve and set aside until foamy.

  2. Add butter and honey to milk, stir well, cool to lukewarm.

  3. In large bowl, lightly beat eggs, then stir in proofed yeast, milk mixture, salt, and vanilla.

  4. Gradually beat in half the wheat flour, beating vigorously for about 3 minutes or until air bubbles form. Beat in another cup or so of the wheat flour.

  5. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled. Stir down and turn out onto the remaining wheat flour.

  6. Knead, adding the white flour only if needed to prevent sticking, 5 min or so until smooth and pliable. Dough should snap when kneaded and feel buttery but not sticky when squeezed.

  7. Roll out half of dough on lightly floured surface, adding additional if needed, to about a 24x12 inch rectangle.

  8. Mix the brown sugar and spices together.

  9. Brush generously with 1/2 the butter, then spread evenly with half of the sugar mixture and half the apples.

  10. Roll up jelly roll fashion. Using thread, cut into 12-14 equal slices.

  11. Place slices in lightly greased pan, about 1 inch apart.

  12. Repeat process with second half of dough and toppings.

  13. Let rise, covered with tea towel, until half doubled in size.

  14. Bake in preheated oven (350* F) 13-18 min or until light golden.

  15. Can be glazed, but that is not included here.
