Apple-Fllled Jack-O'-Lanterns, American

Halloween is a fun time for both children and adults - perhaps because all of us enjoy a brief escape into the wonderful world of make-believe. Monday evening when little hobgoblins, ghosts or beautiful creatures come a-knocking on the door, why not drop "Fun Foods" into their loot bags? A real Halloween treat is an apple filled yeast roll decorated like a Jack-O'-Lantern. After the rolls are baked, the little "Trick or Treaters" in your house can add their personal touches by decorating the rolls like Jack-0'-Lanterns with orange colored powdered sugar frosting and Halloween candy for the eyes and mouth.

Apple-Fllled Jack-O'-Lanterns

  • 1 (1 lb.) loaf frozen bread dough
  • 2 medium cooking apples, finely chopped (1½ cups)
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsps. butter or margarine melted
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
Preparation Instructions

Let loaf thaw to room temperature. Cut loaf into 8 pieces. Roll or stretch each piece into a 4-inch circle. Mix apples, sugar and cinnamon. Place spoonful of apple mixture on center of each piece of dough. Bring edges together and seal tightly. Place each roll, seam side down on lightly greased sheet pan, 2½ to 3 inches apart. Gently flatten to form circle. Brush rolls with melted butter or margarine. Let rise in warm place, free from drafts, until doubled in size. Bake in a 375-degree oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool on absorbent paper, and then decorate with icing and Halloween candies.
