For the dough
  1. Put all of the dough ingredients in the bowl of a dough-kneading food processor for 10 to 15 minutes, until a homogeneous dough has formed.

  3. Brown the apples for a few minutes, then set them aside.
  4. Place the dough on a flour-covered worktop and form a rectangle measuring approximately 30 x 22 cm.
  5. Spread the soft butter on top of the dough and sprinkle completely with the brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  6. Arrange the browned apple cubes and the crushed pecans on top. Roll the dough lengthwise.
  7. Slice into 10 rolls, then place them next to each other on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  8. Cover with a clean cloth and let stand for another hour at room temperature.
  9. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  10. Brush the tops of the cinnamon rolls with a bit of milk, then bake for about 25 minutes, until they are deep golden brown.
