TRIED 'N' TRUE: Serve this apple roll warm with whipped topping

I have revised this recipe to be a little bit easier for our times. You know how the old recipes were —  butter the size of an egg, pinch and a dab (also my all-time favorite), add flour by the handful. This original apple recipe came from Gene’s aunt, Ginnie Myles. I add sweetener so Gene can enjoy these also.

Apple Cinnamon Roll

3 cups flour

2 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons sugar

3 tablespoons butter, melted

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons milk

1⁄2 cup shortening

3⁄4 cup packed brown sugar

3 1⁄2 cups chopped apples

3 tablespoons lemon juice

2 teaspoon cinnamon

Raisins or nuts, if desired

• Sift flour, baking powder, salt and sugar.

• Add shortening and cut in.

• Add milk all at once and stir until just dampened.

• Knead and roll out 1⁄4 -inch thick, roll into an oblong shape.

• Brush with melted butter.

• Arrange apples on top.

• Blend with lemon juice to prevent apples from turning brown.

• Sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar.

• Roll up like a jelly roll and cut into 1-inch slices.

• Place on a well-sprayed or buttered baking dish.

• Bake 450 degrees for 10 minutes, then reduce heat to 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

• Serve warm with whipped topping or sauce. Your choice.
