Apple Fritter Bread

Since it's apple harvest time, I will be trying out some new apple recipes.  This is the first recipe I tried.  It is best warm, out of the oven.  John LOVED this bread.  He said it was better than eating an apple fritter.

Recipe from: Flour Me with Love (She has lots of step-by-step photos if you need them)

Dough:
3 C flour
1 package yeast
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 C brown sugar
1/4 C water
1 egg, beaten
3/4 C milk
1/4 C butter

Filling:
6 small apples, peeled & diced
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 C brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 Tbsp. butter
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. cornstarch

Glaze:
1 Tbsp. butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 C powdered sugar
3 tsp. half & half (I used  milk instead)
 In a skillet, cook apples, lemon juice, brown sugar, vanilla, butter, cinnamon & cornstarch until mixture is thickened.  Set aside to cool.
Heat the milk in a small saucepan until it bubbles; remove from heat. Add the butter and stir until melted; set aside.
Put flour, yeast, brown sugar and salt in a bowl, mix well.
 
Add the water, egg and milk/butter mixture.

Mix until dough forms into a ball; knead for an additional five minutes.
Preheat oven to 350.
On a well floured surface, roll dough into a rectangle. 
  
Evenly spread apple mixture over dough.
Cut dough into even squares (I cut 20 squares).

Carefully stack pieces of dough onto each other forming four piles.(use a spatula, it makes stacking much easier!)

Place piles of dough into prepared pan.
Bake 45-50 minutes; until golden brown.  Wait a few minutes and  remove from pan.

Mix butter, vanilla and powdered sugar into a bowl.  Add half & half; stir until you get a creamy consistency. 

Pour on glaze and allow to setup for a few minutes.

Pull some apart and enjoy!
