  1. Step 1
    Preheat the oven to 425° F degrees.

  2. Step 2
    In a large bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Create a well in the center and pour in the buttermilk, 1/4 cup apple butter, and 4 Tablespoons of melted butter.

  3. Step 3
    Slowly beat on low with a mixer until a soft dough forms. You can also use a fork.

  4. Step 4
    Place the dough ball on a floured surface and knead a few times to make the dough more manageable. The dough is very sticky. Pat out to form a 10x14 rectangle, making sure to keep flour underneath and to keep it evenly patted out.

  5. Step 5
    Spread the 6 Tablespoons of apple butter over the dough, making sure to not go all the way to the edges.

  6. Step 6
    In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, sugar, and cinnamon and sprinkle over the apple butter.

  7. Step 7
    Gently and slowly start to roll up from the shortest side. The dough may stick to your work surface, so use a butter knife to gently loosen the dough as you roll.

  8. Step 8
    Cut a very small piece of each end to even it up. Cut the dough roll into 9 even pieces. Place the rolls cut side down into an 8x8 pan that has been coated with 1 Tablespoon melted butter.

  9. Step 9
    Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven.

  10. Step 10
    Beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, and 2 Tablespoons of apple butter until creamy. Spread over the slightly cooled rolls. Serve immediately.
