You will definitely be getting a few pats on the back when you serve up Slow Cooker Apple and Cinnamon Yeast Rolls made with cinnamon and apple butter.

  1. Pour warm water (105-115 degrees) and sugar in stand mixer. Pour yeast over sugar water and let rest for 10 minutes.
  2. Turn mixer to low and add the apple butter, egg and salt.
  3. Slowly stir in cinnamon and flour. Next, add the melted butter. Knead the dough on a floured surface at this point, or in stand mixer with dough hook for 5-7 minutes. Dough will be quite tacky.
  4. Re-flour work surface and using a floured knife, cut the dough into 4 quarters. Next, cut each quarter into 6 equal pieces, to make 24 small pieces. Create little dough balls by forming in hand.
  5. Place a large piece of parchment paper in crock, and press down. Arrange 12 dough balls in the crock. Sprinkle the rolls with a little brown sugar.
  6. Cover. Crock on High for 1-1 1/2 hours. While these first 12 are cooking, keep next 12 covered with plastic wrap on counter, or place in fridge for another time.
  7. The rolls are done when they feel slightly firm and no longer tacky. Repeat with second batch. Total crock time for both batches will be 3 hours max.

Happy Crocking!
