"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

4 c. chopped apples (1/4' in. pieces) 1/2 tsp. nutmeg 2/3 tsp. cinnamon 1/2 c. sugar 2 c. flour 1 tsp. salt 2 tsp. baking powder 3/4 c. shortening 1/2 c. milk
Sauce 2 c. sugar 2 c. hot water 1/4 c. butter
Mix together chopped apples, nutmeg, cinnamon and sugar and set aside. Prepare dough by cutting shortening into flour, salt and baking powder then add milk and make into a dough ball. Roll the dough out. Spread the apple mixture over the dough and roll up. Cut into 3/4 in slices "like jelly rolls" and place the cut rolls into a 9 X 13' pan.
Sauce Boil the water and add butter and sugar. Bring mixture to a boil. Pour over the rolls and bake at 400º for 30 minutes.
These are the best. Mom made these apple rolls almost weekly during the fall when the apples were plentiful.
