Easy Apple Dumpling Rolls....

These won the favor of all my kids! They are quick to make and the flour can be soaked if you like or you could use plain unbleached flour too. You could also use fresh apples (grated) but I had some home canned applesauce that I put up last week that worked out just perfectly! (And also helps keep it quick.)

For the dough:
3 cups fresh spelt flour
1/2 t salt
1 1/2 T baking powder
3 T cane sugar
3 1/2 T melted butter
2/3 cup kefir
1 egg

Mix the dry ingredients, then blend in the wet (or if you elect to soak your flour, soak the butter, kefir and flour over night, then beat in the salt, sugar, baking powder, then the egg, and lastly the flour)
-you will need some plain or unbleached flour to dust for rolling-
-you will want to dust the area fairly well so as to easily roll the dough up-

Roll out your dough in large rectangle then spread with the following:
approx. 1 cup applesauce
then dust with cinnamon to your liking
sprinkle approx. 1/2 cup brown sugar and/or honey

Roll up into a jelly roll and slice into approx. 15 rolls.
Place in lightly greased 9x13.

For the sauce:
mix 1 can of frozen apple juice concentrate (no added sweeteners)
1/2 cup water (opt. drop or two of red food coloring for looks, gives the sauce a darker cooked apple look)
Pour sauce right over the top of unbaked rolls.
Yep! Right over the tops.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes until golden and the sauce has thickened.

See the nice sauce there on the right of the rolls? And in the middle?Oh its good!
Below is what they look like upside down, thought you might like to see how the sauce thickens. If you like, you may mix up a couple of cups of powdered sugar and a spoon of milk and drizzle over the tops, but they really don't need it- they're yummy just like this!

I usually take several recipes, add to and take away, and make my own. I tried something a couple of weeks ago where I had about 5 recipes laid out, and I took them and different things about them, to make one recipe that worked for me. Of course it took me about 3 tries to get it right...;-)

Thank you Pam!
My kids liked this so much, that some of them had the leftovers for breakfast today, along side a cup of homemade applesauce.
