Dough: • 1 cup warm milk • 1 tablespoon instant dry yeast • 2 tablespoons white granulated sugar • 1 teaspoon salt • 3 tablespoons salted butter, softened • 1 large egg • 3 cups all purpose flour Filling: • ½ cup salted butter, softened • ½ cup brown sugar • 1-2 tablespoons ground cinnamon • 2 medium Granny Smith apples, cored and finely chopped • ½ cup caramel sauce Glaze: • ½ cup caramel sauce • ¼ cup chopped pecans, optional ✅Instructions 1️⃣ In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine warm milk, yeast, sugar, salt, butter, and eggs. Add in flour. Using a dough hook, turn the mixer on to a low speed. 2️⃣ Once the flour starts to incorporate into the dough, increase the speed to a medium range. Add more flour as necessary so that the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. The dough mixture should be soft and tacky, but not stick to your hands. Add more or less flour until the dough reaches the desired consistency. 3️⃣ Transfer the dough to a lightly greased mixing bowl. Cover with a towel and let rise until double in size, about 1 hour. 4️⃣ Lightly grease a baking sheet. Punch down the dough and roll into a 12-inch by 18-inch rectangle. 5️⃣ Spread 1/2 cup softened butter onto the dough in an even layer, leaving 1/4 inch around the edges. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle on top of the butter. Sprinkle finely chopped apple on top of the sugar mixture in an even layer. Finally, drizzle 1/2 cup caramel sauce on top. 6️⃣ Roll up tightly lengthwise so you have one long roll. Use plain dental floss or a sharp knife to cut the dough into 12 one-inch slices. 7️⃣ Place the slices onto a lightly 9x13 pan. Cover and let rise 30 to 45 minutes. 8️⃣ Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake the rolls for about 18-22 minutes, until just kissed with brown on top and apples are soft. 9️⃣ Drizzle remaining 1/2 cup caramel sauce on top of the rolls while still warm. Sprinkle with chopped nuts (optional). Serve immediately or cool and store. Stays good for 3 to 5 days..
