Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls

In my former life, I think I was a chubby mummy.

apple-pie-cinnamon-rolls I don’t mean thick I mean obese. I had to have been. How would I come up with the things I come up with if I didn’t crave them from a deep place within me? I am a lover of fried and baked dough with yummy sweetness on them. I can’t tell you the last time I ate at Cinnabon. Actually, it has been about 5 years ago. Sure I have had cinnamon rolls since then, but do you want to know why I haven’t had Cinnabon cinnamon rolls? Hmm? Hmm? That is because they are dangerous and I am like an addict when it comes to them!!!! I LOSE MY MIND. Seriously! You know that you can be a sugar addict, right? Well I am one and Cinnabon is my substance of choice. If I have just one, just one, like an addict, I will keep going back for more and more. So, I only eat cinnamon rolls and sugary things that I know I can walk away from. Its still hard but I have to be strong.

But these rolls that you are looking at right now, yea that thing in the picture,  are about 10 feet away from me as I type and I am getting jittery just thinking about them. These buns belong on Cinnabons menu because that craving I get for Cinnabon, is exactly what I have right now for my Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls. I’m telling you guys, they are dangerous.

apple-pie-cinnamon-roll My taste buds are becoming more sensitive to sugar and these, surprisingly, aren’t that sweet. I mean, they are loaded with sugar, but its not “sugar city” in your mouth. They are wonderfully pleasant and delicious. I just can’t get enough. I dare you to make them and try to walk away from them. Go ahead! I triple-dog-dare you. Once you eat them come back to me and let’s talk about how we need to start an AA group for sugar addicts.

Instructions
  1. Directions
  2. First thing we are going to do is make the apple pie filling. In a large skillet, melt the stick of butter on medium heat. Once the butter has melted add both sugars and stir until they slightly dissolve. Now add the apples and stir to make sure the apples are evenly coated. The apples will begin to release water and that is okay. Just keep stirring for about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add the corn starch to the cold water in a separate small bowl. Use a fork to whisk to make sure that the cornstarch is completely dissolved. Pour the cornstarch mixture into the apple mixture and continue to stir. You will notice the mixture getting thicker; add the nutmeg and cinnamon to the apples. Continue to stir for about 10 minutes until the apple mixture is nice and thick like apple pie filling. Once this happens, take off the heat and allow to completely cool before using. You can put it in the fridge if you are in a hurry, but it must completely cooled.
  4. Let's make the dough, take all of the contents out of the Hot Roll Mix box and pour the flour mixture into bowl along with yeast. Use a whisk to blend the dry ingredients. Add the butter, egg, and water and mix with a wooden spoon. Turn to a lightly floured surface and knead for about 5 minutes until the dough is smooth. Allow to sit for 5 minutes, covered.
  5. Now, roll out your dough in a long rectangle. Your measurements should be somewhere in the ball park of 18X20. Now, smooth out the 5 tbsp of butter on the dough but leaving about an inch of the border unbuttered. Sprinkle the other cup of brown sugar on the dough and sprinkle some extra cinnamon on top of if you want.
  6. Take your cooled apple pie filling and spread it on the buttered part of your dough. NOTE: You may not need the entire pie filling. I only used about ⅔ of what I made but use your best judgment. You can take what is left and pour on top of the cinnamon rolls as it bakes if you want.
  7. Now with the end closest to you, begin to roll your dough, tightly, into a log. With a sharp knife, cut into 1 inch rolls and place in 9 inch round pans sprayed or buttered. Place in a warm place and let double in size for about 30 minutes.
  8. Preheat oven to 375 Degrees
  9. Now that the buns are ready, bake in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes until golden brown. To make the drizzle, add all of the contents in a bowl, powdered sugar, butter, vanilla, milk, cinnamon, and salt, and whisk until it becomes a nice thick glaze and pour on top of the warm rolls and serve!
