Remaking fun or...?

I can't decide if I'm happy that this remake is catching on or if I'm sad that people seem to love the remake more than the original song from Architecture In Helsinki. And what's more, some people seem to not even know it's a remake! As Dr. Dog himself would say, "Shame, Shame". But when all is said and done, I have a fondness for both.

It's snowing!! And I'm baking cinnamon rolls stuffed with apples! And listening to the new Feist album! Jealous? Don't worry, this can be you too.

Feist album download/listen link: here


2 Cups shredded green apples
3 Tablespoons brown sugar
1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 Tablespoon flour

1 Tablespoon melted butter
1 Tablespoon sugar
1/4 Teaspoon ground cinnamon

6 Tablespoons powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon melted butter
1/4 Vanilla or almond extract
1-2 Teaspoons milk

Pre-heat oven to temperature specified on your bread dough

Spray a pie plate (or similar dish( with nonstick cooking spray and set aside

On a lightly floured surfce, roll dough into a rectangle (about 12x18), cut dough into 3-in squares

In a mixing bowl, combine the ingredients for the filling and mix well.

Spoon filling onto each square of dough. Use your fingers to close each square of dough, wrapping dough around filling and pinching to seal shut forming a ball. Place balls seam side down in pie plate.

Combine the toping ingredients and sprinkle on top of the dough. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the rolls are golen brown on top. Remove from the oven and cool for 10 minutes

While the rolls are cooling, whisk the glaze ingredients until smooth. Drizzle on top of rolls and serve.
