Prep time: 45 mins
Cook time: 45 mins
Total time: 1 hour 30 mins
  • 6-8 Apples (peeled and shredded)
Sauce (Boil for 3 minutes):
  • 1 C Sugar
  • 2 C Water
  • 3 Tbsp. Butter
  • ¼ tsp. Cinnamon
Pie Dough (Mix together):
  • 2 C Flour
  • 1 tsp. Salt
Cut in:
  • ⅔ C Shortening
  • Sprinkle with 4 Tbsp. Water
  1. Gather the pie dough in a ball and roll out into a rectangle on a floured surface (about 9x13).
  2. Spread the shredded apples evenly over the pie dough.
  3. Mix together ½ C sugar and ½ tsp. cinnamon and sprinkle over the apples.
  4. Dot with butter.
  5. You may add chopped pecans, raisins, etc. at this time.
  6. Starting on the long side, roll up as you would a jelly roll.
  7. Place the edge side down in a 9x13 pan.
  8. Pour the syrup mixture around the roll.
  9. After about 30 minutes, spoon some of the syrup over the roll, so it will brown (you may want to do this several times.)
  10. You may also sprinkle sugar over the top of the roll before placing it in the oven.
  11. Bake for 40-45 minutes at 425 degrees.
  12. Let cool slightly and serve with half-n-half or ice cream.
