Frosted Apple Squares


If you like apple pie squares, you'll love this sweet roll version—a fresh apple filling is encased in a rich, buttery dough. Best of all, you can make it ahead, and pop it in the oven in the morning.

Advanced Serves
SKILL LEVEL 24 squares
3-3/4 to 4-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 (2-1/4 tsp.) envelope Fleischmann's® Quick Rise Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1 cup butter or margarine
3 egg yolks
Apple Filling
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
3 tablespoons Fleischmann's® Corn Starch
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg yolk, slightly beaten
3 medium cooking apples, cored, peeled and thinly sliced
Powdered Sugar Glaze
2 cups powdered sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons milk

Combine 1-1/4 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast and salt. Heat water, milk and butter until very warm (120oF to 130oF). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg yolks and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.

Divide dough in half; roll half of the dough on lightly floured surface to fit the bottom of ungreased 15-1/2 x 10-1/2 x 1-inch jelly roll pan. Place in pan, pressing dough up sides. Spread with Apple Filling. Roll remaining dough large enough to cover filling. Place over filling; seal edges together. Snip surface of dough with scissors to let steam escape. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.

Bake at 375oF for 20 minutes or until evenly golden. Drizzle with Powdered Sugar Glaze. Let cool in pan; cut into squares.

Apple Filling: Combine water, sugar, cornstarch,  cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in large a large saucepan. Stir in egg yolk and  apples. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly until thick, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool.

Powdered Sugar Glaze: Stir powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl until smooth.
