Celebrate Fall! Nothing says Autumn like caramel, apples and cinnamon. Try this
delicious Caramel Apple Twist. Your family will thank you.
16 Rhodes™ Dinner Rolls, thawed and risen
2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled,
cored and chopped
12 caramel cubes, cut into fourths
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup chopped almonds, divided
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 cup prepared vanilla icing
Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Combine 8 dinner rolls into
a ball and roll into a 6 x 16-inch rectangle. Repeat with remaining rolls. Cover
with plastic wrap and let rest.
In a large bowl combine apples, caramels, brown sugar, 1/2 cup almonds, cinnamon
and flour. Remove wrap from dough.
Divide apple mixture equally between the two rectangles and spread down the center
of each rectangle. Fold both edges of each rectangle over the filling, overlapping
slightly, and pinch together to seal.
Place both filled rectangles on a sprayed baking sheet and carefully braid them
together. Press ends together. Cover with sprayed plastic wrap and let rise 15-20
Remove wrap and bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until lightly browned.
Cool slightly. Microwave vanilla icing for 10 seconds. Drizzle over twist and sprinkle
with remaining 1/4 cup of almonds.
