Ingredients

1 stick butter or margarine
2 cups water
1/2 cup shortening
2 cups finely chopped apples
2 cups sugar
1-1/2 cups self-rising flour
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Instructions

Melt butter in 13x9x2-inch pan. Heat water and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Cut shortening into flour until particles are like fine crumbs. Add milk and stir to form a ball. Knead on lightly floured pastry cloth or board until smooth. Roll dough into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle. Sprinkle cinnamon over apples and stir. Arrange apple mixture evenly over dough and roll up like a jelly roll. Dampen edges of dough with water to seal. Slice dough. Roll into 1/2-inch thick slices. Place in pan with melted butter. Pour sugar syrup mixture around rolls. Bake 55 minutes at 350 degrees.
