The buns themselves, they taste milky good; and with ith the buttery apple filling, these buns are ah-ma-zing.
Step 1: Ingredients and Method
1 1/4 c milk (no skim nor 1% milk please. I'd go for 3% or 2.8% at least)
1/4 c sugar
1 heaping tsp instant yeast
4 c flour
Heat milk to lukewarm, stir in sugar, let stand for a for 30 seconds then stir in yeast. Let stand until yeast is softening
Add in flour one cup at a time, knead. Cover and let stand until doubled in size, in warm area
Meanwhile, make the filling
2 apples, as long as they are sweet
2-3 tbsp sugar
lime juice of 1/2 lime
1 generous tbsp butter
2 tsp of cornstarch diluted in a little milk
Skin and slice apples into small thin quarters. Place apples in a pot, turn on heat low-medium. Add in butter, stir until melted and apples starting to soften. Stir in sugar until melted. Cook until you feel the apples are soften enough (depending whether you want them to be a bit crunchy or totally soften).
Pour in cornstarch mixture, stir quickly, to thicken. Take off from heat and let cool to room temperature.
Divide dough into 8 balls. Flatten each with your hands and fill center with 1 generous apple filling, seam to seal
