Ingredients

1/2
cup butter or margarine
2
cups sugar
2
cups water
1 1/2
cups Gold Medal™ self-rising flour
1/2
cup shortening
1/3
cup milk
2
cups finely chopped peeled baking apples (2 medium)
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Place butter in 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish; place in oven to melt. In 2-quart saucepan, mix sugar and water. Heat over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves. Set aside.
  • 2 Place flour in medium bowl. With pastry blender or fork, cut in shortening until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Add milk; stir with fork just until mixture begins to pull away from side of bowl.
  • 3 On lightly floured surface, knead dough just until smooth. Roll out dough to 12x10x1/4-inch rectangle.
  • 4 In medium bowl, gently stir apples and cinnamon until coated. Sprinkle apples evenly over dough. Beginning with long side, roll up jelly-roll fashion. Cut into 16 slices, each about 1/2 inch thick. Arrange slices in baking dish over melted butter. Pour sugar syrup carefully around and over rolls. (This looks like too much liquid, but crust will absorb it.)
  • 5 Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 15 minutes before serving.

Expert Tips

For a cranberry-apple version, use 1 cup chopped fresh cranberries and 1 cup finely chopped peeled apple.

To make Apple-Raisin-Pecan Cobbler, sprinkle 1/2 cup raisins over melted butter in baking dish and arrange dough slices over raisins. Sprinkle top with 1/2 cup chopped pecans before baking.
