Apple Roll

Yield 4 rolls


  • 1 package dry yeast
  • 1 cup milk, scalded, cooled to 105° to 115°, and divided
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
  • 4 cooking apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 cup pecans, finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • Cinnamon Glaze

How to Make It

  1. Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup milk, stirring well; set aside.

  2. Sift together flour, 1/4 cup sugar, and salt in a large mixing bowl; cut in shortening with a pastry blender. Add remaining milk, eggs, and yeast mixture to flour mixture; stir well. Cover; refrigerate overnight.

  3. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; divide into 4 equal portions. Roll each portion into a rectangle 1/4-inchthick on a floured pastry cloth; brush each with butter. Arrange apple slices evenly over rectangles. Sprinkle each with one-fourth of brown sugar, coconut, pecans, remaining sugar, and cinnamon. Roll up jellyroll fashion, beginning at short side; moisten edges and seal. Place rolls, seam side down, on greased baking sheets.

  4. Bake at 300° for 55 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to a wire rack, and drizzle with Cinnamon Glaze. Slice and serve warm.
