One thing I learned from my great-grandma's recipe for Apple Rolls is that what she wrote and what she meant might not always have been the same thing!
When I found this recipe and read it over, I could tell right away that following it exactly would have scary results. I decided to do it anyway---just for fun...
|I used my Pampered Chef apple peeler/corer/slicer to prepare the apple slices. I love this tool and imagine my great grandma probably had one too!|
Then I was supposed to roll it up like cinnamon rolls, slice, place in my pan, and cover with "sauce":
Finally, the baking:
These were pretty scary looking but my sweet kids ate them up anyway!
So...after a few
And finally, this:
Which one would you like the recipe for? Hee Hee Hee... I will give you the bread machine version that I made up. If you don't have a bread machine, you can adapt a regular cinnamon roll recipe and use my filling and frosting parts of the recipe.
Bread Machine Apple Rolls
1 c. warm milk
2 eggs (room temperature)
1/3 c. melted butter
4 1/2 c. flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 c. sugar
2 1/2 tsp. yeast
Place items in bread machine in order listed and run on the dough cycle. Roll out dough in a large rectangle and mix the first three ingredients of the filling and spread filling evenly over dough. Then sprinkle with chopped apples.
1 c. brown sugar
2 Tbs. + 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/3 c. softened butter
2 Granny Smith apples, peeled and chopped
Roll up into a long "snake" and slice off rolls to desired thickness. Place in well-buttered baking pan. Cover pan tightly with plastic wrap and allow rolls to rise for 30 min. Remove wrap and bake on 375 for 12-15 minutes. Mix frosting ingredients with an electric mixer until well blended and fluffy. Before serving, cover rolls with frosting or melt frosting to drizzle over as icing.
3 oz. softened cream cheese
1/4 c. softened butter
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/8 tsp. salt
Wow---now that I've written this all out for you, I want to go make another batch!

|Making funny faces at Mommy!|
|Ruth from Antiques and Teacups showed off some of her tea towel collection. This is a really informative post with some great images. I have been sent several tea towels by friends overseas over the past few years---but I'm using them! Oops...I didn't realize they were a collector's item. Oh well---at least I'm enjoying them!|
|Debbie at Debbie-Dabble shared her Valentine's Day tree. I am always enchanted by the neat way in which she decorates her home. Her blog and photos are so inspiring!|
|I think this Welcome sign from Navy Wifey Peters is so adorable. What a great way to honor her husband and his service!|
|Lisa from The Self Sufficient HomeAcre showed how she made her own cheese. This is homemaking at it's finest---I'm impressed!|
