Apple Cider Cinnamon Rolls
Prep: 1 Hour + Rising
Bake: 30 Min.
Makes: 1 Dozen
3¼ cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup sugar
1 package (¼ ounce) quick-rise yeast
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup 2% milk
¼ cup apple cider or juice
¼ cup plus ⅓ cup butter, softened, divided
2 cups finely chopped peeled tart apples
1¼ cups packed brown sugar
¾ cup finely chopped walnuts
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
APPLE CIDER CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
2 cups apple cider or juice
1 cinnamon stick (3 inches)
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
¼ cup butter, softened
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1. In a large bowl, combine 2¼ cups flour, sugar, yeast and salt. In a small saucepan, heat the milk, cider and ¼ cup butter to 120°-130°. Add to dry ingredients; beat just until moistened. Add egg; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Roll into a 15×10-in. rectangle. Spread remaining butter to within ½ in. of edges. Combine the apples, brown sugar, walnuts and cinnamon; sprinkle over butter.
3. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut into 12 slices. Place cut side down in a greased 13×9-in. baking dish. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes.
4. Bake at 325° for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. For frosting, place cider and cinnamon stick in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced to ¼ cup, about 20 minutes. Discard cinnamon stick; cool cider.
5. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy. Add confectioners’ sugar and reduced cider; beat until smooth. Spread over warm rolls.
