For the filling:

  1. It is best to weigh the butter 1 hour in advance and set aside to warm up. It is important that it paints well and easily. Peel and coarsely grate the apple, sprinkle with a little lemon juice. Mix cinnamon and sugar.
  2. Roll out the yeast dough into a rectangle, then first spread the butter evenly over the dough, then distribute the grated apple and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Roll up the dough from the long side and cut into 2-3 cm thick slices.
  3. Grease a casserole dish or large springform tin with butter and place the snails cut-side down or up in the tin. Not too tight, because they still need some space to rise. Cover the dish and let it rise again for 30 minutes in a warm, draft-free place.
  4. The cinnamon rolls are baked in the preheated oven (200° C, top and bottom heat) for 25 minutes. In the meantime, mix all the ingredients for the glaze and spread over the freshly baked snails. Allow the cinnamon rolls to cool for about 20 minutes before serving.
