Super-Size It ....

My friend Michelle, over at Big Black Dogs, posted her Cinna-Bites using Lou's Sweet Dough. I was in such a hurry to copy the recipe, because Lou is (IMO) "The Dough Master", that I kind of missed the part where she said that "it makes 2 large loaves of Challah or 2 bundt pans of cinna-bites" ... LOL ! What we have here is "super-sized Buns!


3 apples, peeled, cored and chopped finely
1 cup raisins
1 cup walnuts, chopped
Cinnamon & Nutmeg, to taste
1/2 cup granulated brown sugar

Combine apples, nuts and raisins in a large bowl. Sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg, stir gently to coat apples. Roll out the dough, brush with melted butter. Spread filling over dough and roll up. Cut in 1-inch pieces, place cut side down on buttered sheet pan. Cover with towel and allow to rise until double in bulk. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown. I just mixed up a cup of confectioners sugar with about a Tbsp. of milk and brushed it over the hot buns as soon as they came out of the oven.

Note: This made 15 "super-size" buns.

Hey, anyone would eat 2 of these at a time so why not make it easy and just "super size" 'em!!!

LOL!!! It is a large recipe, but so worth it!!

LOL ... the food critic is so happy I made this error, he consumed 2 of them immediately. If only what he ate would stay off my hips :)
