Caramel Apple Nut Rolls

SharedSugar_CaramelAppleNutRolls1 Every time I start writing a post, I find myself expressing a deep love for the food I am writing about, almost like every food is my favorite. I love ice cream. I love cookies. I love blackberries. And I am especially fond of cinnamon rolls. On Saturdays, when I am up early and out for a long run, I fill my mind with thoughts of warm, gooey cinnamon rolls. Once I finish my run, I stop by the farmer’s market or my favorite breakfast place and indulge in my reward.

In the spirit of the changing leaves and cool days, this twist on cinnamon rolls includes the treasure of juicy, fall apples. There are so many choices when it comes to apples. I used two types, Gala and Cameo apples. They are both tasty for eating and baking with the Cameo being a bit more tart than the Gala. The Cameos also have a beautiful red and yellow stripe pattern, which, of course, is no matter to the taste. Just choose your favorite apple.

These rolls are made with apple butter and cinnamon in the middle and then baked with apple pieces and pecan halves. Then they are topped with sweet caramel icing. The icing puts these over the edge, so I always drizzle on a little extra for good measure. No bobbing for apples this fall, they are more fun baked into breakfast!

    Caramel Apple Nut Rolls

    makes at least 18 medium rolls

  • Ingredients

  • rolls
  • 1 quart whole milk
  • 1 cup vegetable oil*
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 packages active dry yeast
  • 9 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 tablespoon salt
  • 2 medium apples, peeled, sliced and chopped thin
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 16 tablespoons apple butter
  • 1 cup melted butter
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • caramel icing
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 6-7 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • *may replace with olive oil

  • Directions

  • make the rolls

    Mix the milk, vegetable oil and sugar in a saucepan over medium to high heat. Heat until just before boiling. Remove from heat. Transfer to a new bowl to bring the temperature down quicker and let cool for 1 hour until the mixture is just warm. Add the active dry yeast and let it sit for a few minutes. In increments, mix in 8 cups of flour. Cover and let the dough rise for 1 hour.

    Mix 1 cup of flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add to risen dough. If desired, cover dough and refrigerate until you are ready to make the rolls. The dough will last for up to one week.

    Butter two 9-inch pans. You can also use 5-inch wide, 2-inch deep, heat safe ramekins for single servings. Or you can use a combination of pans and ramekins. Cover the bottom of the pan with pecans. Then top the pecans with the apple pieces. Combine 1/4 cup of melted butter with two teaspoons of cinnamon. Brush the mixture evenly on the apples in each pan. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

    Divide the dough in two and form rectangles. On a large, floured surface, begin to roll out half the dough in a long rectangle. Dough should be rolled out about 1/4 inch thick. Then, leaving about 1/2 inch on the edge, spread half of the apple butter on the dough. Using a brush, add half the butter. Then sprinkle the dough with half the brown sugar and one tablespoon of cinnamon.

    Then begin to roll the dough in a long cylinder shape. Roll tightly, tucking the dough as you go. Once the dough is rolled, cut it in rolls about 1-inch thick. If using ramekins, cut the rolls slightly thicker to account for the deeper dish. Place the rolls in the pans on top of the apples, leaving room for the rolls to expand. Repeat with the other half of the dough. Let the rolls rise for 30 minutes. Bake the rolls for 19-22 minutes until they are golden. Remove them from the oven and within 5 minutes, turn the rolls over onto a plate so the pecans and apples are on top.

    make the caramel icing

    In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the cream and brown sugar and bring to a boil for one minute. Remove from heat and whisk in half of the powdered sugar. Let it cool slightly, then add the remaining powdered sugar. Whisk vigorously until the powdered sugar is well combined. If you prefer it a little thinner, mix in 1 tablespoon of cream. Then drizzle the icing over the rolls.

    Those look too good to be true, though I’m guessing they’re EXACTLY as good as they look. Probably better. How sinful and seasonal!

    I’m going to give these a try this weekend –they look amazing! I’m just wondering about the amount of rolls that the recipe yields. With nine cups of flour, does it really only make 18 rolls? I peeked at the site you adapted it from and she stated that it makes up to seven pans. Did you cut them much thicker than her? Just curious –so I can warn my neighbors of extra rolls or not! Thanks.

    Thanks for your sweet comments. Hannah, Mara edits our photos in Photoshop. She is seriously fantastic.

    Laurie, I probably cut my rolls about 1 inch thick. Also, I discard the ends that don’t seem like they have enough substance to them. The batches I made here allowed me to make a few individual servings (with 2-3 rolls per ramekin) as well as the larger pans. If I put them all in 9-inch pans, I could probably get 3 pans out of the recipe. Hope that helps.

    I have been craving cinnamon rolls for weeks! This looks amazing- I have to finally get on it this weekend!

    Great blog! Sorry to change the subject, but, I’m new to Nashville and I’d like to find a great auto repair in Nashville TN. Have you heard of any good ones? There’s a new auto repair shop called Veterans Auto Services, but I’ve only seen a few reviews. Here’s the address of this new Nashville Auto Repair, Veterans Auto Services 2404 Cruzen St Nashville, TN 37211 (615) 712-9777. Thoughts? Thanks!

    This tends to be a streaky defensive passive, since a few bad
    rolls in a row (no dodges) could spell death.

    liked to talk a lot about how tough he was since
    he had one. Kickboxing is a full contact sport that was introduced in the 1960s.
