Frozen Apple Rolls

It's apple season!  Yay!  I was lucky enough to have a neighbor let me pick apples off his tree last week and I got to make my favorite apple dish over the weekend.  It's quick. It's easy.  It is a great way to store apples to enjoy during the cold winter months.

 And yes, it is another one of those beloved recipes that my grandma and mom have made as long as I can remember.

Frozen Apple Rolls

2 cups flour                                                                  Syrup: 2 c. sugar
2 t. baking powder                                                                   2 c. water
1 t. salt                                                                                     1/4 t. cinnamon
1/2 c. milk                                                                                1/4 t. nutmeg
2/3 c. shortening                                                                       6-10 drops red food coloring
2 1/2 c. grated apples                                                                2 T. butter or margarine

Sift dry ingredients, cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Add milk all at once and stir until flour is moistened.

On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into an 18 by 12 inch rectangle about 1/4 inch thick. 

 Spread grated apples over the dough.  

Roll up like a jelly roll.  

Cut the log into 8-10 pieces.  

Place on cookie sheets and place into freezer.  
 
When the rolls are frozen solid, you can put them into freezer bags.

When ready to bake, place frozen rolls in an ungreased 9x13 pan.  

Make syrup by placing all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. 


 Pour over frozen apple rolls.  

Bake at 375* for 35-40 minutes.


For some reason, I keep finding bowls that look like this.  Apparently, the family approves of a long time family favorite recipe.

What is your favorite apple recipe?  How do you store the summer and fall flavors for the winter?
