Makes 2 dozen rolls


For the dough:

5 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
2 packages active dry yeast
1/2 cup water, hot
1/2 cup milk
3 eggs, beaten
Ginger-Apple Filling (recipe follows)
Nutmeg Plum Icing (recipe follows)


In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, salt, and ground ginger. In another bowl combine the yeast and the hot water, mixing well. Let stand to get frothy a few minutes and then add the a little of the dry mixture, the yeast mixture and the milk and the eggs in a mixer and begin to mix, adding a little at a time of the dry mixture until it is done and a soft dough is formed. Knead on a lightly floured surface until the dough is smooth and elastic about 8-10 minutes. Cover and let rest for about 10 minutes. Divide the dough into two equal portions and roll each portion into a 12 x 8 inch rectagnle about 1/2 inch thick. Spread the ginger apple filling evenly over each rectangle. Beginning at one of the rectangles, roll it up tightly like a jelly roll, making sure to pinch the seams to seal. Cut each roll into 12 pieces and place rolls on a greased baking sheet (butter). Cover and let rise in a warm draft free location until double in size or about 45 minutes. Pre-heat oven to 375°F. After the rolls have doubled in size, place in the oven and bake for about 30 minutes or until a stick inserted comes out clean. Place the Nutmeg Plum Glaze over the hot rolls and let cool.
