Apple Cinnamon Rolls

We couldn’t let apple season pass by without one more apple recipe: Apple Cinnamon Rolls.  Reminiscent of traditional cinnamon rolls, these used freeze dried apples in the dough as well as the filling to give it that ultimate apple kick.  So even if you don’t get to go apple picking this autumn, you can still enjoy a baked apple treat, topped with cinnamon cream cheese frosting no less.

Thanksgiving Breakfast – Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Cobbler with Cinnamon Maple Whipped Cream


As I’ve mentioned before, Thanksgiving is my favorite food holiday.  This is the holiday that I scour my favorite food magazines, scroll through my favorite food blogs and visit numerous websites looking for the perfect new recipe to take to our family get together.  We, like so many other families, spend the night together Wednesday night so Thursday morning is literally wall to wall food from the moment we wake up till the moment we go to sleep that night.  In years past, Carmi and I have shared some family favorites, exciting new side dishes as well as an entire series on using up those leftovers.  This month we will be sharing some delicious breakfast options that don’t take a lot of time or effort but will still wow and impress your family Thanksgiving morning.  Of course, if your family is staying for several days, these next few posts would also work perfectly for the weekend after turkey day.

Yay for Fall! Apple Pie


For the almost 25 years that I’ve used the Ankarsrum, I’ve always told people that pie dough was the one thing this amazing machine couldn’t do.

It all comes together to form pie dough.

As we’ve gone over many times before, you CAN NOT put cold butter in the Double Whisk Bowl or you will end up with broken gears and bent wires. In case you missed that, click HERE for a quick refresher on how to properly use the beater bowl and whisks.

I’ll be honest, it has always bothered me that I couldn’t make pie dough with my Ankarsrum. I mean come on, it can do just about everything else. Except sadly, a load of laundry! So I set out to figure out a way to make it work even using cold butter.
