Apple butter in a blanket

I have the winter blues. Like the rest of the country, it’s cold in Oklahoma and I miss my sun dresses.

It’s the coldest it’s been since we have moved here but still a lot warmer than the weather we are used to in Missouri. Either way I got the blues and only warm bread can soothe them.

I saw this apple butter in the grocery store last Saturday and despite it not being on my list, I knew I wasn’t leaving without it. It looked like something I needed.

Random buy= totally worth it

D-Money and I brainstormed some ideas for how to use the apple butter and came up with apple butter in a blanket. Really, it was the hubs vision but I am taking credit since I made it. It’s best served warm and makes one amazing breakfast for champions or delicious dessert.


Snuggle up on your couch with these, a movie and wait for winter to thaw. Spring is coming folks!

Ingredients (dough):

1 ¼ HOT water (talking about 80 Fahrenheit or 27 Celsius)
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 ½ cups organic bread flour
2 teaspoon bread machine dry yeast

Ingredients (inside dough):

apple butter
cinnamon and sugar mixture


Add the ingredients under the Dough heading as they are listed into your bread machine. Allow bread machine to knead the dough. When the bread machine is finished kneading, take the dough and form a ball with it and then split it in half. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.


Roll out half of the bread ball relatively thin and in a semi square (it won’t be perfect, mine was not), the other half of the bread ball can be saved for later use.


Spread apple butter on the dough and using a knife, cut the flattened dough into triangles.


I did this backwards and cut first and spread second, it was a mistake and messy. Roll the triangle bread long ways and place on an ungreased cookie sheet and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar mixture. Repeat this about 20 times and bake for 10 minutes.

Totally imperfect but amazing non the less

Enjoy and stay warm!
