Sweet Rolls

  • Combine flours and salt. In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, add milk and yeast. Add honey, eggs, and butter. Mix for 1 minute and add flour mix. Mix for 5-8 minutes. Dough should be elastic, and not sticky. Shape into a ball and place in a oiled bowl. Cover and proof for 1-1 1/2 hours or until doubled in size.
  • Oil a countertop, hands and rolling pin. Roll the dough into a 10x15 inch rectangle. Spread the apple butter on the dough leaving a 1/2 inch border. Roll the dough into a log. Cut into 6 equal portions and place in a 8x8 baking pan. Cover and let rise for 45 minutes or doubled in size.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake the rolls for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and cool before icing.

Maple Cream Cheese Icing

  • Cream together the butter and cream cheese. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use.
