  • 1 loaf of Rhodes Bread dough (found in freezer section), thawed and risen
  • 6 Baking Apples (Granny Smith, Jonathan), peeled and sliced
  • 1 stick Butter
  • ¼ Cup Granulated Sugar

  1. Peel and slice your apples.
  2. Melt butter in saucepan and cook apples for a few minutes. Add in the sugars, cinnamon and vanilla, and cook until tender.
  3. Spread the bread dough out on a rimmed cookie sheet in a large rectangle and place the apples all the way down the center.Using a pizza cutter, cut the same amount of strips on each side of the apples.
  4. Fold the top two strips, down over the apples to create the end of the braid and prevent apples from spilling out.
  5. Take the next strip and pull to the other side of the braid. Now from the other side of the braid take that strip and pull to the other side. Braid the bread down to the other end. (Be sure to fold over the last two strips on the end just like you did for the beginning).
  6. Bake at 325 until golden brown. If desired, top with toasted almonds and cream cheese frosting
