Apple Pie Rolls
It is a crisp fall day and that always makes me think of apples and pumpkins. I have had making these little apple rolls on my mind for a week and they finally made it to the top of the pile today. This is a perfect dessert for 2 people or 10, just increase the number of apples you use. I used 2 apples and got 9 apple rolls.
I used a Granny Smith and a Gala apple because that is what I had and I like the flavor of the gala a lot in pies especially with the crispness of the granny smith apples. Whatever apples you use just make sure they are a cooking apple.
Some of the more common apples we find in grocery stores. There are many more that are good for cooking and lots of regional apples. One of favorite New England apples is a Gravenstein. Mutsu’s are becoming a little more common and it is one of my all time favorite apples for baking and cooking, it’s great raw also.
