  • 1 envelope active dry yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water (100-110 degrees F)
  • 3/4 cup milk, scalded
  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) margarine
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 1/2 cups (about) flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups peeled, chopped apples
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons hot water


  1. Sprinkle yeast over warm water and set aside for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, combine hot milk, margarine, sugar and salt in a large mixer bowl; let stand until margarine melts.
  3. Beat in 1 cup flour.
  4. Add yeast mixture, cinnamon and egg, beating until combined.
  5. If using a heavy-duty mixer, beat in remaining flour to make a sticky dough. If using a hand mixer, stir in remaining flour with a spoon.
  6. Turn dough onto a floured board and knead 5 to 10 minutes, until soft and elastic, adding additional flour if necessary.
  7. Place dough in a greased bowl and turn to grease top. Cover and let rise about 1 1/2 hours, until doubled in bulk; or cover and let rise overnight in the refrigerator.
  8. Bring dough to room temperature before continuing.
  9. Punch down dough and divide into thirds. Shape one-third of dough into a flat disc.
  10. Toss with one-third of the apples.
  11. Arrange apples and dough in six mounds on a greased baking sheet.
  12. Repeat with remaining dough and apples.
  13. Cover and let rise at room temperature until doubled in bulk, about 1 hour.
  14. Uncover and bake at 350 degrees F for about 15 minutes, or until golden.
  15. While still warm, drizzle with glaze made by stirring together powdered sugar and water.
  16. When cool, store in plastic bags.
