Stuffed Apple-Cinnamon Rolls
1 package refrigerated pizza dough or 1 recipe Breadstick dough
2 cups shredded green apples (about 3 large apples)
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon flour
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 tablespoon sugar1⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 tablespoon melted butter1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
1–2 teaspoons milk
1. Preheat oven to temperature specified on pizza dough.
2. Spray a pie plate or similar dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the pizza dough into a rectangle approximately 12 x 18 inches. Using a pizza cutter, cut dough into 3-inch squares.
4. In a mixing bowl, combine the shredded apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and flour. Divide evenly by putting a spoonful on each square of pizza dough. Use your fingers to close each square of dough, wrapping dough around filling and pinching to seal shut forming a round ball. Place balls seam-side down in pie plate.
5. Combine the topping ingredients and sprinkle on top of the dough. Bake for 15–20 minutes or until the rolls are golden brown on top. Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes.
6. While the rolls are cooling, whisk the glaze ingredients until smooth. Drizzle on top of the rolls and serve.
