Apple Filled Sticky Buns

Who doesn't love an ooey gooey sticky bun?  I sure do, but have been reluctant to make them because of the time it takes with preparing the dough.  This version is a little bit of a shortcut using a Pillsbury Hot Roll Mix.  It's also healthy because I've added apples in the filling (well at least the apple part is healthy), so you have an excuse to eat them.  I made half of the batter with just the cinnamon/brown sugar filling, and 1/2 with the apple filling.  I really liked them with the apple filling. 


1 16 oz package hot roll mix
3 Tbsp butter melted
2/3 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 apple, peeled and finely chopped- I used a gala apple which worked great
Sticky Bun Syrup - whisk together 2/3 cup confectioners sugar, 1/4 cup melted butter, 2 Tbsp pure maple syrup and 1 egg white until smooth
Maple Glaze - Prepare when rolls are almost ready: melt 3 Tbsp butter in a small saucepan over med heat, whisk in 1/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar, 2 Tbsp maple syrup, and a pinch of salt until blended.  Add 3 Tbsp milk, bring to a boil, whisking constantly.  Reduce heat to med-low, simmer, whisking constantly, 3-4 mins until golden brown and glossy.  Use immediately

Spoon sticky bun syrup into 2 9" pie or cake pans or 1 large casserole pan.  Prepare roll mix according to box directions, cover the dough and let it stand 5 minutes.  Roll dough on a floured surface into an 18 x 10" rectangle.  Using a pastry brush spread the melted butter over dough.  Stir together the brown sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over butter.   Sprinkle apples over cinnamon/sugar.   Roll up the dough tightly, starting at the longest end.  As your rolling brush off excess flour from the dough with a dry pastry brush.  Cut into 18 slices with a serrated knife.  Place 1 in center of each prepared pan and 7 slices around the center.  Cover pans loosely with saran wrap, and let rise in a warm place 85 degrees to proof - double in size.  The way I did this: I set my oven to 170 degrees (the lowest setting) once it hit this I shut it off and put the buns in the oven for 35 mins until doubled in size.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees, uncover rolls and bake for 15 to 20 mins or until golden brown and done all the way through.  Cool in pans for 5 minutes.  Meanwhile prepare the glaze and brush over rolls.  Serve immediately.  Cover any remaining rolls with saran wrap, these can be reheated individually in the microwave for about 20 seconds at 50% power to achieve the ooey gooeyness again the next day.
