  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature


  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 34 tablespoons heavy cream


  • Dough: Combine 3 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt into the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
  • In a medium microwave safe bowl, heat the milk and butter for 2 to 3 minutes until it’s very warm (120° to 130°F).
  • Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and blend for 2 minutes on medium speed, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary. Add the eggs and 2 more cups of flour and blend for 2 more minutes at medium speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough, you might not need it all. Replace the paddle attachment with the dough hook and blend on medium speed for 5 to 8 minutes until smooth. Alternately you can knead the dough on a lightly floured surface using your hands for 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Cover and let rest 10 minutes.
  • Roll each half of the rested dough into a 12×10 rectangle on a lightly floured work surface.
  • Filling: While the dough is resting prepare your filling. In a large bowl combine sugars, flour, and cinnamon and stir. Add in the melted butter and blend until combined.
  • Divide the mixture in half and spread evenly onto each rolled out dough.
  • Sprinkle the diced apples evenly on top of every. Roll up the dough tightly from the long side and then slice the dough into 1 1/2- inch portions.
  • Coat 2, 9×13-inch baking dishes with nonstick spray and place the rolls into the pans. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes, or until doubled in size.
  • Crumb Topping: In a medium bowl mix together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and butter.
  • Using your hands combine the mixture until crumbs form when squeezed together.
  • Sprinkle all the rolls evenly with the crumb topping.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake the rolls for 30 minutes until lightly golden. Allow them to cool barely before icing.
  • Icing: In a medium bowl mix together the powdered sugar, butter and vanilla. Whisk in the cream until smooth.
  • Drizzle the icing on the barely cooled rolls.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature
