Apple Rolls

These small rolls taste wonderful and if you taste one still hot from the oven dripping with glaze....well I dare say you won't eat only one!! I first tried this recipe many years ago and it was a always a hit whenever I served them. Tonight I am serving them as a dessert for our supper guests!

Apple Rolls

2 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
apples, approx 2 1/2..I used McIntosh but I am sure any kind would do.

Cut shortening into dry ingredients. Add cream and mix with fork till you can handle the dough and forms into a ball. Cover dough and refrigerate for 1 or 2 hours.
Roll out, not too thin and cut in squares.
Peel and core the apples and cut into quarters, I make these rolls small so I cut the apples into eighths. (approx) Place an eighth of an apple on a square of dough and roll them up placing them on the pan. To make them look a little 'fancier' I place the apple piece diagonally on the square of dough and bring up 2 corners and pinch them on top.
Bake at 400 degrees for 17 min or until golden in color.

Glaze
1 cup icing(powdered) sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 tsp warm water
Mix and brush on the apple rolls while they are still hot.

Yield: 30 'delectable' apple rolls

  14. Uhmmmm! What a warm and delicious dessert to serve your guests! I like the glaze idea and must try your recipe! The apple dumplings I make have an orange glaze which is good but too sticky to handle.

    Thanks for stopping by Esther's Insights. Always good to hear from you!

  17. Definitely cut the apples into eighths! I have a pampered chef corer/slicer that cuts 10 slices at a time. Although the rolls turned out wonderful, they would have been just that much more wonderful with a bit more apple in the middle. The pastry is "melt in your mouth" rich. I took the challenge of trying to eat just one fresh out of the oven...I failed and had two...quite happily. Very good recipe.
