Yield 12



  1. Add the yeast and warm milk to a mixing bowl and let stand for 7 minutes to proof.
  2. Add 1/4 cup melted butter (reserving 1/4 cup for later), salt, granulated sugar and eggs and mix on medium speed until combined.
  3. Slowly add the flour 1 cup at a time, and continue to mix on medium speed.
  4. Knead by hand on a floured cutting board, or in a stand mixer with the hook attachment for 10 minutes.
  5. Cover with a towel and place in a warm place to rise for 2 hours.
  6. In the meantime, peel, core and chop the apples and heat them in a pot with 1 tbsp water, 1 tbsp cinnamon, lemon juice, and nutmeg on low heat for 15 minutes or until soft. Remove from heat and set aside.
  7. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  8. Roll the dough on a floured surface into a 20x15-inch rectangle.
  9. Pour the remaining 1/4 cup melted butter onto the dough, then sprinkle the remaining 2 tbsp cinnamon and the brown sugar on top.
  10. Drain the apples and pour evenly on top.
  11. Roll the dough from the long edge and cut into 12 pieces.
  12. Place each roll into a greased 13x9-inch baking pan and bake for 18 minutes.
  13. Combine the powdered sugar and 1 tbsp milk in a small bowl to make the glaze.
  14. Once cool, drizzle the glaze over the cinnamon rolls.
