Apple Pull-Aparts

3-4 cups flour
2 tbsp sugar
1 package rapid rising yeast
1/2 cup softened butter or margarine
1 cup milk
1 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten

Golden apple filling:
1 cup peeled, chopped apples
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Combine 1 cup flour, sugar, yeast and salt. Heat milk and 2 tbsp butter to 120 F. Add egg and blend. Add milk mixture to flour mixture and beat until smooth. Add only enough of remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead until smooth and satiny. Cover and let rest 20 minutes. Divide dough into 32 pieces, flatten each piece in palm of hand and fill with approximately 1/2 tsp golden apple filling. Pinch edges together, roll to form ball. Melt remaining butter, dip balls in butter. Arrange 16 filled balls in well-greased 10" tube pan so they just touch in single balls, sprinkle with 1/2 of remaining apple filling. Add remaining balls, sprinkle remaining apple filling over top. Cover, let rise 20-30 minutes. Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes or until golden. Cool 10 minutes. Invert onto serving plate. Makes 10 servings.
