  • Grease a 9x13" pan and set aside. Chop the apples in the filling and set aside.
  • On a floured surface, roll out bread dough into an 18″x9″ rectangle.
  • Cover the dough with a thin layer of butter. In a small bowl combine brown sugar and cinnamon, then sprinkle it over the rolled dough. Top with apple filling.
  • Roll the dough into a log (it should be 18″ long). Slice into 12 pieces. Place the rolls in the pan and cover with parchment paper and a dishtowel. Place in a warm area to rise (about 90 minutes).
  • Once risen, preheat oven to 350°F. Bake 20-23 minutes or until golden.
  • Let cool in the pan about 2 minutes. Run a knife around the edges and invert onto a plate.
  • In a small zippered bag, mix the glaze ingredients together. Snip off the corner and drizzle over top.
  • Serve warm.

Recipe Notes

Ensure the filling is not chilled from the fridge or the rolls won't rise properly. 
These rolls are best served warm from the oven. As they cool the centers will hollow slightly.
