Sunday Morning Cinnamon Rolls

These cinnamon rolls are the best I’ve ever made and I got the recipe from this little cook book I bought ten years ago at the local pumpkin farm where I grew up as a kid.  It’s a small cook book of goodies they sell at the refreshment stand when the farm is open for Fall.  Everyone wants another.  I couldn’t wait to eat one.  And then lick the icing off my fingers.
This is what you need to make these great goodness.

1/2 c. milk
2tbsp. butter
1/2 c. applesauce
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 egg, beaten
1 pkg. yeast
1c. all-purpose flour
1c. bread flour
1/3 c. brown sugar
1tsp. cinnamon
2tbsp. butter (melted)

In saucepan, heat milk and 2 tbsp. butter just until warm.   Mix applesauce, sugar and salt in mixer bowl.  Add milk mixture and beat with mixer until mixed.  Beat in egg and yeast.
In another bowl mix flour together. Add half of flour mix to applesauce.  Mix together.  Add rest of flour(dough will be very soft).  Turn into greased bowl, cover and let rise.
Punch down dough.  Turn onto floured surface and knead a few times.  Roll dough into 12x 10 rectangle.
Mix together brown sugar and cinnamon.  Brush surface of dough with butter and sprinkle with sugar mix.  Cover and let rise.
Bake rolls at 350 for 20min. or till golden brown.  Cool and drizzle with Pillsbury  cream cheese frosting.  Makes 12 rolls.
