Apple Cinnamon Rolls


1/2 cup butter

2 cups sugar

2 cups water

1 1/2 cups sifted self-rising flour

1/2 cup shortening

1/3 cup milk

2 cups finely chopped apples

1 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350°

Melt butter in a 13"X9"X2" baking dish or sheet cake pan. In a saucepan, heat sugar and water until sugar dissolves. Cut shortening into flour until particles are like fine crumbs. Add milk and stir with a fork only until dough leaves the side of the bowl. Turn out onto lightly floured board. Knead just until smooth. Roll dough out into a large rectangle about 1/4" thick. Sprinkle cinnamon over apples. Then pour apples evenly over the dough. Roll up dough like a jellyroll. Dampen the edge of the dough with a little water and seal. Slice dough into about 16 slices 1/2" thick. Place in pan with melted butter. Pour sugar syrup carefully around rolls.

Bake 55-60 minutes.
