Ingredients


  • Apple Cinnamon Filling
  • 3 large cooking apples, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 2-1/2 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
  • Dough
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 (2-1/4 tsp.) 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

Directions


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

For Dough:
Combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast and salt in a large mixer bowl.  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.

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.
