2large or 3 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and small-diced
For the glaze:
1/4teaspoonSpice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract
For the dough:
In a large bowl, combine milk, water, butter, sugar, eggs, salt and yeast. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 2 minutes (if using a stand mixer, use the paddle attachment.) Add enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.
If using a stand mixer, switch to dough hook and knead on medium-low speed for 3-4 minutes.
If kneading by hand, turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Place in a large oiled bowl and turn to coat all sides of dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 1-1/2 hours.
Once doubled in size, punch down dough. Roll out on a floured surface into a 15 by 9-inch rectangle.
For the filling and baking:
Combine melted butter, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Spread all over dough. Sprinkle chopped apples over top. Beginning at the longest (15 inch) side, roll up dough and pinch edges together to seal. Cut into 12 slices.
Coat a baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. Place cinnamon roll slices close together in the pan. Cover pan and let rise until dough is doubled, about 45 minutes.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown.
For the glaze:
Mix all ingredients together. Whisk in milk 1 tablespoon at a time until the glaze reaches desired consistency. (If you like a thinner consistency glaze, add more milk.) Spread over slightly cooled rolls.
