Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Apple Cinnamon Rolls

The addition of apples and cinnamon to bread certainly adds a wow factor that brings delight to each bite.  Cinnamon and apples has to be one of my all time favorite flavor combinations, it just tastes so good!  However, you can easily substitute the filling for chocolate chips (yum!) or use raisins instead of apples.  Whatever you chose to put in them, these rolls lie somewhere between challah and dinner rolls, are fun to bake, and are simply delicious!
