Apple Cinnamon Pull Aparts
(printable recipe at end of page)
(recipe makes 1 ring of pull aparts)

1-2 Envy Apples, peeled 
2 cups Buttermilk Baking Mix
1/4 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/2 cup Milk
2 ounces solid Cream Cheese
1/3 cup Sugar
1/3 cup packed Brown Sugar
1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup Powdered Sugar
1-2 tablespoons Milk


Cut the apples off of the core. This will leave slices like the picture on the left. Cut the slices in half. If necessary, cut the slices in half again, per picture #2. Taking the cut slices a little at a time, hold the flat edge on your cutting board like, picture #3 and chop small pieces, like picture #4.
Add baking mix, and cinnamon to a large bowl. Mix together with a spoon. Add the chopped apple pieces.
Add the milk, and stir together to form a ball.
Form 16 balls of equal sized dough.
Cut the cream cheese into 16 equal sized pieces.
Wrap each ball of dough around a piece of cream cheese.
As you form them into balls, make them look nice, as these are pretty close to how they will look when baked. In a separate bowl, mix together the white and brown sugar, and cinnamon. In another separate bowl, melt the butter. Take each ball of dough, roll it in the butter, and then into the sugar cinnamon mix.
Once rolled, place the dough balls into a 4-5 cup ring mold, that has been buttered. I used the pan above with the small one in the middle because I don't have a ring mold. This is simple to do. Just butter each pan. 
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30-40 minutes. They should be light golden brown when they are done. Immediately flip over to a serving platter. Then flip back over to serve. You can also just take the small inside pan out, and use a spatula to remove them.
Make a little bit of a drizzle by whisking sifted confectioner's sugar and milk together. 
Drizzle over the warm rolls and enjoy! Don't forget a big cold glass of milk!

Well, this was my first recipe of #appleweek, and I hope you enjoyed it! Don't forget that I will have more apple recipes for you every day this week, all featuring fresh and delicious Envy Apples! Please stop by and give them a look. They are all yummy and fun to make!
