With chopped apples slightly cooked in a brown sugar sauce, the small pieces of roll are tossed in a cinnamon sugar mix.
I have to admit, I love fruit. But I think it's best when it's covered in a delicious sauce and paired with something creamy. And I especially love my fruit warm with some amazing vanilla ice cream. This dessert is delicious on it's own, but gets that hot/cold, and sweet/tart combos that taste oh so good with the addition of vanilla ice cream.
Named for the dough that has been cut into bite sized pieces, this Caramel Apple Bubble is sure to please the whole family.
With chopped apples slightly cooked in a brown sugar sauce, the small pieces of roll are tossed in a cinnamon sugar mix. Once the dough rises and you bake the dessert, you have tender apple pieces combined with a dough bite that is crisp on the outside and delicate on the inside. The combination is bettered with a caramel sauce and topping that adds a buttery sweetness to the dessert.
For this 4 person dessert you will need 8 Rhodes Bake N Serv Dinner Rolls. Thaw them out to begin.
Using a kitchen sheers, cut each roll into four pieces.
Set those pieces aside for a few minutes to make the apple bottom.
In a small cast iron pan- mine is about 7 inches. Combine brown sugar and butter with a tablespoon cinnamon. Cook on medium heat to melt butter. Chop 3 medium apples and add to hot pan, cooking another 3 minutes until butter and brown sugar have combined into a sauce. Remove from heat and allow to cool a few minutes.
In a baggie combine cinnamon and sugar.
Toss roll pieces into the cinnamon sugar mix to coat each piece.
Place the roll bites around the pan in rings, adding one to the center point of the apples.
Continue adding pieces around the pan until it is full and you have used all pieces. Allow dough to proof one hour.
Bake at 350 degrees about 15-18 minutes, until rolls are browned. Immediately drizzle caramel topping over top of rolls.
Serve while still warm.
Top with ice cream if desired.
Here is the recipe.

Use your leftovers in a creative way and make Thanksgiving leftovers pizza this year. This pizza has a little of everything from Thanksgiving dinner all in one. Everyone will love it.
Every year, we end up with a ton of Thanksgiving leftovers. So this year we decided we would use our leftovers in a creative way and make Thanksgiving leftovers pizza. This pizza has a little of everything from Thanksgiving dinner all in one. It was a hit at my house! Everyone loved it.
9 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
1 1/2 cups mashed potatoes
1 cup stuffing
1 cup bite size turkey pieces
3/4 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
gravy and cranberry sauce, if desired
Start by setting your Bake-n-Serv rolls out to thaw on a greased surface. You want your rolls thawed, but don't let them rise.
Spray counter lightly with non-stick cooking spray. Combine 9 rolls and roll into a 13-inch circle. Place dough on a sprayed 12-inch pizza pan. Poke with a fork several times to prevent bubbles from forming.
Bake at 350°F 8-10 minutes, until crust is golden brown.
Remove from oven and spread crust with mashed potatoes. Add crumbles of stuffing and turkey pieces evenly on top of potatoes. Top with cheeses and return to oven until cheese melts, about 5-10 minutes.
And you've got your entire Thanksgiving meal on a pizza. This is the perfect recipe to use up those leftovers from Thanksgiving.
Start a new Thanksgiving tradition this year with these easy and fun Gratitude Rolls!
Today we have a fun new Thanksgiving tradition for you to try. And it's not DIY jewel encrusted napkin rings or anything like that. We're talking simple! That's right, we're looking out for you. As you already know, Rhodes helps make your Thanksgiving Day food prep a little easier anyway. So just put your bag of Rhodes rolls in the refrigerator the night before, and you'll be ready to whip out these fun Gratitude Rolls.
The idea is to hide little messages in your dinner rolls. Think fortune cookies! There are 4 shaped rolls that this idea will work well with.
The shaped rolls go in a muffin tin, but you could also fold up your messages inside Parkerhouse rolls.
After you've decided which kind of roll you want to make, just cut up some strips of parchment paper for your notes. There are a few different ideas for the notes that you can use. If you've got your guests around while you're preparing the rolls you could try one of these ideas:
1. Have each guest write some things they are thankful for on each strip of parchment paper. During dinner, each person shares what is on the paper as they eat their roll. For a little more fun, keep the notes secret and let everyone try and decide who wrote the note in their roll.
2. Exchange names and have each guest write a special note for that person.
If your guests won't be available until dinnertime, try one of these ideas:
1. Put the names of your guests in the rolls. Give each person the chance to say why they're grateful for other members of the family.
2. Play a fun Thanksgiving trivia game. Ask questions like "Which president made Thanksgiving an official national holiday?" or "What does the term cornucopia mean?" Here's a link to 100 Thanksgiving trivia questions at brownielocks.com.
3. Put fun questions or fill-in-the-blank notes in each roll. Here are a few ideas:
My favorite Thanksgiving memory is ________
One of my favorite things to do on Thanksgiving is __________
The very best thing at this meal is ________ (be sure to answer the rolls! :D)
I decided to make a tray of cloverleaf rolls. You just cut dinner rolls in half, then put three halves in each tin. Here they are with the notes put inside.
Then I covered them with sprayed plastic wrap and let them rise. In about an hour they were ready for the oven. 15-20 minutes at 350.
Here's the finished product. As you can see, some of the notes are sticking out quite a bit, so you may want to try tucking them in a little better before baking. I mangled a few trying to mush them in after the fact.
I actually really like the way the swirl rolls turned out!
Now the house smells amazing and the family can't wait to find out what surprise is in their roll!
Can you believe Thanksgiving is this week? Have a wonderful holiday and happy baking!
There's just something about pull apart bread that is just so wonderful. With Fall in full swing, I wanted to create a festive version that would be great for now through December
One of my all-time favorite posts is my Coconut Lemon Pecan Pull Apart Bread! It's an original recipe and it came together brilliantly. There's just something about pull apart bread that is just so wonderful. With Fall in full swing, I wanted to create a festive version that would be great for now through December. Pumpkin everything is everywhere already so why not jump on the bandwagon? Once you see how easy this is to put together you'll run out and grab everything to make it yourself. At least that's my hope. I can just about guarantee you'll love it, I know I certainly did! So come with me while I show you how quick & easy this yummy dessert is! Gather all of your ingredients. It's so much nicer having everything right at your fingertips ready when you need them. I used one of the loaves of Rhodes bread, but you certainly can use the rolls - you'll just thaw them and then combine them in to one ball (usually 10-12 rolls, depending if you use the regular sized or the Texas rolls). The rest of the ingredients you'll need are: granulated sugar, chopped pecans, pumpkin pie spice, and softened butter. Once your loaf has thawed (but still cold), you'll roll it in to a 12x16 rectangle. If you've followed my Rhodes posts for a while, you know that rolling the dough out is my least favorite part! But with that said, if you start to roll it out and then let it rest you'll have better success without much frustration of it shrinking on you! Spread evenly with 1/3 c. softened butter. Sprinkle your dough evenly with granulated sugar, pumpkin pie spice and chopped pecans. The smaller the chopping, the better. It will work better for your layers if you have small bits rather than whole or partially chopped pecans. Cut your dough in to even strips about 2 inches wide. Carefully top one on top of another until they are all stacked. Take your time, the toppings are only loosely on the dough. You'll have to pat them down occasionally to keep it all in place. You'll then cut your strips in to squares. You can either use a bread or serrated knife, pizza cutter or stainless steel scraper & chopper (which is what I used). I didn't count the number of pieces I ended up with, so I'll say... it was.. a good amount! Squish each section of squares together in a loaf pan. With only a little bit of budging you should fit all of your pieces perfectly. Don't worry about lining them up exactly, you'll just want to shove them in anywhere there is a space. Be sure and round up all of the sugary pecan goodness that you've probably left on the table and throw it on the top of your pieces. Cover and let rise until almost double (but don't let rise to the top of the pan, that will be too much). I set my loaf pan outside for 10 minutes in the blazing hot heat and it was just the right amount of time. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. About 20 minutes in my loaf was as golden brown as I wanted it to be, so I covered it with foil for the last 10 minutes. There's nothing worse than having the top brown but the bottom raw. 30 minutes was the perfect baking time for me. Cool in pan for a few minutes, loosen edges and then transfer to cool on baking rack if desired. While your loaf is cooling you'll want to get your glaze ready. This is the perfect topping for the pull-apart bread! Mix together melted butter, powdered sugar and pumpkin puree and you've got yourself the perfect glaze. You'll want to wait until the loaf is almost completely cooled before glazing. Otherwise your glaze will just melt (which a little bit of melting is OK). Drizzle the desired amount on top of the loaf and reserve about 1/4 for individual servings. Best if served right away. Enjoy!
I've got the perfect addition to your Holiday feast right here! The delicious taste of butter adds just the right flavor to these Kaiser rolls.
These delicious buttery rolls are the perfect addition to any feast!
I declare that rolls are the perfect side! They pair so well with almost anything and sometimes can even stand alone when paired with a protein. There are so many different styles of rolls which makes them so versatile. What's not to love?
I especially love the smell of fresh baked bread. It is so light and heartwarming! I literally had to restrain myself from snitching a roll before dinner tonight.
These pretty rolls take a simple meal and make it elegant and fancy. The amazing thing is that once you know how, these rolls are so easy to make!
Doesn't it look beautiful? And perfect? My guests couldn't believe that I tied these rolls in a knot all by myself! I couldn't claim that I made them myself, ya know, because Rhodes provided the dough... But I still felt pretty darn proud...
Now you can easily create these pretty rolls too!
Check out these Step-by-Step Instructions:
1. Set rolls out to thaw (about 2-3 hours).
2. Roll into a 12 inch rope and spread melted butter across the dough.
3. Tie the rope dough into an overhand knot... like so!
4. Take the end that hangs over the loop and pull it under and up through the middle! You got this!
5. Now grab the other end and bring it up over the loop and pull down through the middle! Ta-da!
6. Set those cute little knots on a baking sheet to raise until doubled!
7. Once they are light and fluffy. Place them in the oven at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
Don't forget to find a basket with a pretty napkin to show off your fancy rolls during your dinner feast!
I hope you enjoy these delicious and buttery rolls as much as we did!
Make delicious Rhodes Butter Knot Rolls
Hello there, I am Jennie from the blog Craft-O-Maniac and I am thrilled to share this easy and most delicious recipe with you all today. Who here loves hot out of the oven rolls? ME TOO! Today its all about these pretty Rhodes butter knot rolls.
Take out 12 frozen Rhodes rolls and place them on a sprayed cookie sheet. Let them unthaw until they are soft enough to roll, but still cold to the touch. Start by rolling them into a 9 inch long piece. I didn't actually use any flour nor did I use the counter to roll it out on. I just used both my hands and held the dough in my hands rolling the dough ball back and forth until it gave me the size I wanted. Once you have done that, tie the dough piece into a knot and place into a sprayed cupcake tin.
Cover the rolls with a sprayed piece of plastic wrap, and place the sprayed side down on top of the rolls. Let the rolls now rise to double in size. Next melt some butter, and with a brush lightly brush the tops of each roll with some butter.
Finally, place the rolls in the oven at 350 for 12-13 minutes. Enjoy.
These are so delicious with a nice toasty top. Your family's will love them as much as mine.
