Well hello! Anyone reading still? I know it's been forever...so let's try a heavenly recipe that will make up for it! This was a happy accident I tried while using up a box of honeycrisp apples. **I would however highly recommend a Kitchenaid or similar large mixer for this one...
2 1/4 C. lukewarm water
1/3 C. + 1 T. honey
1 1/2 T. yeast (heaping)
1/3 C. + 1 T. oil
4 C. flour
Add all above ingredients to mixer, and mix on low until wet. Turn to med, and mix for 10 min.
Add 3 C. additional flour, and mix until thoroughly combined.
Turn out onto floured counter, and roll into a giant rectangle...roughly 1 1/2 foot by 2 foot.
3/4 C. butter (1 1/2 sticks)
1 C. brown sugar
2 C. peeled, diced apples, any variety...(the sweeter the better)
1 T. cinnamon
Mix filling ingredients in a small bowl, and spread evenly (using a rubber spatula) over rolled out dough...
1 brick of cream cheese, at room temp.
1/2 C. apple butter
1 C. (or more) powdered sugar
