Slow Cooker Apple and Cinnamon Yeast Rolls

  • Cooking Time:

    3 hours for both batches
  • Servings:



Dry active yeast (1 pkg.)
1/2 c. warm water
3 T. sug­ar
1 T. cin­na­mon
1/2 c. apple but­ter
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp. salt
4 c. bread flour
4 T. melt­ed but­ter
2 T. brown sug­ar

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. Dis­solve the sug­ar into the warm water (105–115 degrees) in the bowl of a stand mix­er. Pour yeast over sug­ar water and com­plete­ly dis­solve.  Let rest for 5–10 min­utes or until bub­bling.
  2. Add the apple but­ter, egg and salt while mix­ing on LOW speed.
  3. Slow­ly stir in cin­na­mon and flour. Next, add 1/4 c. of the melt­ed but­ter. Con­tin­ue knead­ing with dough hook just until well com­bined. (Do not over mix or rolls will be hard!)
  4. Move the large dough ball to a floured sur­face and use a piz­za cut­ter to cut in half.
  5.  Cut each half into 12 equal pieces of dough and roll by hand. (Can wrap and refrig­er­ate or freeze the sec­ond half of dough, if desired.)
  6. Place a large piece of parch­ment paper in a round slow cook­er. Arrange 12 dough balls in the crock. Sprin­kle the rolls with brown sug­ar and driz­zle with remain­ing melt­ed but­ter.
  7. Cov­er. Crock on High for 1 hour.
  8. The rolls are done when they feel slight­ly firm and no longer tacky. Repeat with sec­ond batch, if desired.

I am a lit­tle con­fused about the amount of melt­ed but­ter. In the ingre­di­ents it only calls for 4 T (table­spoons, which is equiv­a­lent to 1/4 cup) and you add that to the dough. But then when you put the dough balls in the crock it says to driz­zle with remain­ing melt­ed but­ter. How much do we use then?
