Great for breakfast or dessert!

Servings: 12
Serving Size: 1 Roll

• 4 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 package dry yeast
• 3/4 cup applesauce
• 1/2 cup skim milk
• 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
• 2 tablespoons butter
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup applesauce
• 1/3 cup granulated sugar
• 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
• 1 cup sifted confectioner's sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 1 tablespoon skim milk

In a large bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups of the flour with the yeast. In a small saucepan, combine 3/4 cup applesauce, 1/2 cup skim milk, butter and salt. Heat over medium heat, stirring continuously, until butter is melted. Add to the flour mixture. Add beaten egg. Combine and beat with mixer on low speed until combined. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Using a spoon, stir in 2 1/4 cups more flour.

Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface. Knead in enough remaining flour (up to 1/4 cup) to form a soft, smooth and elastic dough. Shape dough into a ball and place into a bowl that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray. Turn to coat all sides of dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size (about an hour).

Punch dough down and turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.

Lightly spray two 8 or 9 inch cake pans with cooking oil spray.

On floured surface, roll dough into a 12 inch square. Spread with 1/4 cup applesauce. Combine 1/3 cup granulated sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over applesauce. Roll up and seal seams. Slice into 12 pieces. Place 6 rolls into each prepared pan, with a cut side down. Cover and let rise until almost doubled (about 30 minutes). Preheat oven to 375°F.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden. Cool 5 minutes. Invert onto serving plate. Drizzle with a mixture of confectioner's sugar, vanilla and milk. Serve warm.
