Apple Surprise Rolls
1 16-ounce package hot roll mix
1 medium cooking apple, finely chopped (1 cup)
1/4 cup mixed dried fruit bits or raisins
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Nonstick cooking spray
1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar
1-1/2 to 2 teaspoons milk
1. Prepare hot roll mix according to package directions. Knead the dough; allow to rest as directed. Meanwhile, for filling, in a small bowl stir together apple, dried fruit bits, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Lightly coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray; set aside.
2. Divide dough into 16 pieces. Flatten each piece into a 3-inch circle. Spoon 1 rounded teaspoon of filling onto each circle. Shape the dough around the filling to enclose, pulling dough until smooth and rounded. Place, rounded sides up, on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until nearly double in size (about 30 minutes).
3. Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden. Cool slightly on a wire rack.
4. For icing, in a small bowl stir together powdered sugar and enough milk to make of drizzling consistency. Drizzle over rolls. Makes 16 rolls
