- Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). For filling, cut apples lengthwise around the core into 4 pieces with Utility Knife. Cut pieces in half lengthwise. Using Simple Slicer on #3 setting, slice over Stainless (4-qt./4-L) Mixing Bowl.
- Zest lemon with Microplane® Zester to measure 1 tsp (5 mL). Juice lemon with Juicer to measure 2 tbsp (30 mL). Add zest, juice and remaining filling ingredients to mixing bowl; mix well with Small Mix ‘N Scraper®. Place in Medium Rectangular Baker. (Baker will be very full, but it will cook down.)
- For cinnamon buns, place butter in (1-cup/250-mL) Prep Bowl; microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 30 seconds or until melted; set aside.
- Place baker in microwave. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH 7 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking.
- Unroll dough onto flat side of Large Grooved Cutting Board. Brush with melted butter using Chef’s Silicone Basting Brush. Combine 3 tbsp (45 mL) sugar and 1 tsp (5 mL) cinnamon in Flour/Sugar Shaker; sprinkle evenly over dough.
- Starting on the long side, roll dough into a tight log, pinching seams to seal. Using Pizza Cutter, cut dough into twenty (½-in./1-cm-thick) slices.
- Using Silicone Oven Mitts, carefully remove baker from microwave. Sprinkle with pecans (if using). Top with dough slices (cut-side down). Bake, uncovered, 15-17 minutes or until buns are golden brown and apples are tender.
