Caramel Apple Cinnamon Buns (137 calories, 4g fat)
Average SMALL SIZE cinnamon bun (350 calories, 15g fat!)
Ours uses a seamless refrigerated dough sheet you find at the market - granny smith apples - caramel dip... etc...
You'll Need: baking sheet, nonstick spray, microwave-safe bowl, rolling pin (optional), small bowl
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray. In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave apple for 1 minute, or until slightly softened. Add remaining filling ingredients and thoroughly stir.
Unroll dough on a dry surface with the long sides on the left and right. Roll or stretch into a large rectangle of even thickness. Evenly spread filling onto dough, leaving a 1-inch border. Tightly roll up dough into a log. Pinch the long seam to seal. Turn log so the seam side is down. Cut widthwise into 8 equally sized buns, and lay buns on the baking sheet, swirl sides up.
Bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. In a small bowl, mix powdered sugar with 1 teaspoon cold water until dissolved. Thoroughly mix in caramel dip. Drizzle over buns and enjoy!
