This is a recipe that Kimmie recently brought to a church potluck.  It was so good that I knew I had to get a photo and get her recipe!  These Apple Cinnamon Pinwheels are the perfect blend of apple and cinnamon.  They are delicious eaten by themselves or served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  Next time you have company over make this delectable dessert and they will be asking for more!  These would even be great for breakfast!

Apple Cinnamon Pinwheels
Serves 12


For the Dough:
2 c. Flour
2 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Salt
3/4 c. Shortening
1/2 c. Milk

6 Granny Smith Apples
1/3 c. and 1 3/4 c. Sugar
1 tsp. and 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
1/8 c. Butter
2 c. Water


Preheat oven to 375.

In a medium bowl sift together the flour, baking soda and salt.  Cut shortening into the mixture then add the milk. Mix lightly.  Roll dough into a 15×12 rectangle.  Sprinkle 1/3 c. sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon over the dough.

Peel and grate the apples (or use a food processor with the grating blade) and spread over the dough.  Roll like a jelly roll and cut into 1/2 to 1 inch rolls using a sharp knife or a ” rel=”nofollow”>stainless steel scraper/chopper.  Place into a 9×13 baking pan.

Bring 1 3/4 c. sugar, the butter, 1/4 tsp. cinnamon and water to a boil in a pan over medium heat, stirring constantly. Pour over the pinwheels.  The sauce will be thin but it should thicken as it bakes.

Bake for 35 minutes or until lightly browned.  Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
