Cinnamon Bun Apple Cobbler
- 4 medium Granny Smith apples (about 2 lbs/1 kg)
- 1 lemon
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) flour
- 1/2 tsp (2 mL) ground cinnamon
- Cinnamon Buns & Glaze
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
- 1 pkg (8 oz or 235 g) seamless crescent dough
- 3 tbsp (45 mL) granulated sugar
- 1 tsp (5 mL) ground cinnamon
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped pecans (optional)
- 1/2 cup (125 mL) powdered sugar
- 1/2 tbsp (7 mL) milk
Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). For the filling, cut the apples lengthwise around the core into 4 pieces with a Utility Knife. Cut the pieces in half lengthwise. Using the Simple Slicer on the #3 setting, slice apples over the 4-qt. (4-L) Stainless Steel Mixing Bowl.
Zest the lemon using the Microplane® Zester to measure 1 tsp (5 mL). Juice the lemon with the Juicer to measure 2 tbsp (30 mL). Add the zest, juice, and remaining filling ingredients to a mixing bowl; mix well with the Small Mix ‘N Scraper®. Place in the Medium Rectangular Baker. (The baker will be very full, but the ingredients will cook down.)
For the cinnamon buns, place the butter in a 1-cup (250-mL) Prep Bowl; microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 30 seconds or until melted; set aside.
Place the baker in the microwave. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 7 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking.
Unroll the dough onto the flat side of the Large Grooved Cutting Board. Brush with the melted butter using the Chef’s Silicone Basting Brush. Combine 3 tbsp (45 mL) of sugar and 1 tsp (5 mL) of cinnamon in the Flour & Sugar Shaker; sprinkle evenly over dough.
Starting on the long side, roll the dough into a tight log, pinching the seams to seal. Using Pizza & Crust Cutter, cut the dough into twenty ½" (1-cm) thick slices.
Using Silicone Oven Mitts, carefully remove the baker from the microwave. Sprinkle with pecans (optional). Top with the dough slices, cut-side down. Bake, uncovered, for 15–17 minutes, or until the buns are golden brown and the apples are tender.
Meanwhile in a 2-cup (500-mL) Prep Bowl, mix the powdered sugar and milk with the Mini Mix ‘N Scraper® until well blended. (The icing will be thick.) Spoon the icing into a small resealable plastic bag. Trim a small corner off the bag and drizzle the icing over the cinnamon buns. Serve warm.
