Serve it warm and you'll find that the fresh cooked apples in the filling deliver exceptional taste.

Yields 20 servings

Dough:
3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water 
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup prepared caramel topping

Apple Cinnamon Filling:
3 large cooking apples, peeled, cored and chopped
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup Karo® Light Corn Syrup
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon


Directions
For Dough:
In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast and salt.  Heat water, milk and butter until very warm (120° to 130° F).  Gradually add to flour mixture.  Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electic mixer, scraping bowl occasionally.  Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.  Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes.  Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Roll dough to 20 X 12-inch rectangle; spread evenly with Apple Cinnamon Filling (see below).

Beginning at long end, roll up tightly as for jelly roll.  Pinch seam to seal; join ends together to form a ring.  Place, seam side down, on greased baking sheet.  Cut 2/3 through ring at 1-inch intervals.  Twist each section sideways to expose filling.  Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 350° F.   Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until done.  Remove from sheet; cool slightly on wire rack.  Drizzle with caramel topping; serve warm.

For Apple Cinnamon Filling:
Combine apples, flour, brown sugar, butter and corn syrup in a saucepan.   Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.   Cook 3 minutes, stirring constantly.  Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until thick.  Stir in cinnamon.  Cool completely.
