TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 cup warm milk (70° to 80°)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4-1/2 cups bread flour
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup finely chopped peeled apples

  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt


  • 1. In bread machine pan, place the first seven ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed). When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a well-floured surface.

  • 3. Place cut side down in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake at 325° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 4. In a small bowl, beat the icing ingredients. Spread over warm rolls. Yield: 12 servings.
