    I made these today exactly as the recipe is written. I did use all the 4 1/4 cups of flour and still the dough was so sticky and challenging to work with. I am not a novice cook/baker and next time will use more flour. Cutting the rolls with floss with the sticky dough made them almost unmanageable to place in the lined pan. I think what was the most time consuming, but necessary, is to be sure to chop the apples in small cubes which I did.

      There was no way to add to my above comment. I baked these 30 minutes and they were brown and puffed up. Once cooled I found they were not baked completely through. My oven is calibrated correctly so I think more flour or longer baking time, or both. Also, I would spread half of the frosting next time since it would better on the side for those who want more. Great recipe so thank you. I try to make according to instructions first time around but will adjust next time.

        Hi Cindy, I’m happy you enjoyed these rolls! As you know, working with bread dough varies from kitchen to kitchen so I only give an approximation for the flour amount and advise to continue adding flour until a soft dough forms. I’d rather be more conservative because it’s easy to add flour, but too much flour added will ruin the dough. I’m glad it worked out for you in the end, even though they needed more time in the oven. I will make a note in the recipe to clarify those points for other bakers. Thanks for taking the time to leave feedback!

    Any suggestions for how I should alter the recipe if I don’t have instant yeast? I only have regular yeast, but these look fabulous and I really want to make them!

      Hi William, thank you! I’ve heard others using Splenda as a sugar alternative, so you might could try that in place of the sweetener in this recipe. If you do end up trying it, I would love to hear your feedback which might help others with the same question!
