Apple Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes

 I was looking for something to make with my 20 lbs of apples we picked a couple weeks ago. I also needed something for a bake sale at church so I went with these.

Apple Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes-
2 cups milk
2 1/4 tsp yeast
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp salt
6 1/2 cups flour(I used white whole wheat)
2 eggs
1/4 cup butter, room temperature

1/4  cup butter, melted
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
3 tbsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
2 cups finely chopped apples

Heat milk to 110 degrees. Add yeast and sugar to a bowl and pour in the milk stir to dissolve. Add salt and two cups of flour and beat for two minutes. Beat in eggs and butter. Stir in the remaining flour half a cup at a time, beating well after each addition. Switch to the dough hook and knead for 2 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl and cover with a towel. Place in a warm place and allow to rise for 40 mins or until dough is doubled. Line cupcake pan with paper liners.

Once dough has risen, roll out into 1/4 inch thick. Spread dough with melted butter. Mix filling ingredients together and spread over the top of the dough. Starting with the long end first, roll up dough jelly roll style.  Cut into 1 inch strips.  Take strip and fold in half to form the letter c and place into the cupcake pan.(This recipe makes about 24 cupcakes, I made 12 and put the extras in another pan like traditional cinnamon rolls), cover and allow to rise for another 40 mins. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook rolls for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

1 cup powdered sugar
2 tbsp milk

Once rolls have cooled, mix glaze together and drizzle over rolls. Eat and enjoy!

**These were really tasty and a fun twist on the traditional cinnamon roll. They were also really cute in the cupcake tin. Next time I might use less sugar in the filling and make sure you mix the filling RIGHT before you are ready to put it on the dough, otherwise it makes a big mess!
