Apple-Cheese Cornucopia Rolls
Makes 12 rolls
4 to 4-1 / 2 cups all-purpose flour
1 / 2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 envelope FLEISCHMANN’S RapidRise Yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3 / 4 cup milk
1 / 4 cup water
1 / 4 cup butter or margarine
1 large egg
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 / 4 cup sugar
1-1 / 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 / 4 cup chopped pecans
1 / 4 cup raisins
1 medium apple, peeled, cored and finely diced
1 egg white
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon sugar
In a large bowl, combine 1 cup flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, salt and nutmeg. Heat milk, water and butter until very warm (120o to 130oF). Gradually add to flour mixture. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add egg and 1 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.
Divide dough into 3 equal pieces; roll each piece into a 9-inch square. Cut each square diagonally from corner to corner, forming 4 triangles. Position each triangle with the point at the top and away from you. Place a large spoonful of Apple-Cheese Filling on the right-hand side of each triangle, leaving a 1 / 4-inch border; moisten cut edges with water. Fold and stretch left side of each triangle over the filling; tuck under the right side. Pinch tip of dough to ensure that the filling is enclosed, forming a cornucopia. Place, about 2 inches apart, on a large greased baking sheet. Spoon any leftover filling on to each roll at the opening of the cornucopia. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until puffy, about 30 minutes.
Beat egg white and 1 tablespoon water together; brush over dough. Sprinkle evenly with sugar. Bake at 350oF for 20 minutes or until done. Remove from sheet; serve warm.
In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese with sugar and cinnamon until smooth. Stir in nuts, raisins and apple.
