Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Directions:

In a small bowl, stir together the yeast, water and 2 tsp sugar and let it sit until it foams up, about 10 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl add the milk, melted butter, egg, sugar, and salt and mix until well combined.
Add about half of the flour and mix until smooth then mix in the yeast mixture.
Slowly add the remaining flour until combined, if using a mixer you will have to switch to using your hands or a wooden spoon.
Remove the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes.
Put dough into a greased bowl, cover with a tea towel, and set aside to allow the dough to rise, about 2 hours.
Meanwhile Toss the apples in a large bowl with lemon juice to keep them from browning and set aside.
Pour cornstarch into a large saucepan and slowly whisk in water to prevent the cornstarch from getting lumpy.
Mix in the sugars, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a pinch of salt and bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat.
Allow to come to a hard boil, stirring constantly for 2 minutes.
Add the apples and bring back to a boil then reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for 15 minutes or until apples soften to the desired texture.
Remove from heat and set aside.
When dough has risen punch the dough down and remove from the bowl.
Roll the dough out on a well-floured surface into roughly a 16×24 inch rectangle
Spread the softened butter over the dough.
Mix the brown sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle evenly across the butter.
Spread the apple mixture over top of the the brown sugar.
Roll into a log, starting lengthwise; the log should end up approximately 24 inches long.
Slice evenly to create the seperate rolls.
Line a 9×13 baking pan with parchment paper and place the cinnamon rolls in the pan, making sure they are not touching.
Cover with a clean dish towel and allow the dough to double again, about 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 375?F.
Bake the rolls for about 22-25 minutes.
If a glaze is desired, mix powdered sugar, milk and vanilla together with a whisk.
Drizzle the glaze over top of the cinnamon rolls and serve.
