Apple Butter Dinner Rolls

I just recently made another batch of my apple butter. And I thought it would be perfect to stir in to some dinner roll dough and it was.

I have made other breads before that would include jams or preserves which turned out nicely. This was no exception.

The brush of honey butter on top gives it that extra burst of flavor. Sort of like steakhouse dinner rolls.
