What do you get when you combine Apple Pie and Cinnamon Rolls? Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls of course!
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. It’s still hard but I have to be strong.
My taste buds are becoming more sensitive to sugar and these, surprisingly, aren’t that sweet. I mean, they are loaded with sugar, but it’s 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.
How to make Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls
You start off making these Cinnamon Rolls just as you would Cinnamon Rolls. When I am in a rush to make dishes that require yeast, I use Pillsbury Hot Roll Mix because it just makes the entire process easier. I simply follow the instructions on the box and allow the dough to rise. I used this mix to make my Pecan Bourbon Sticky Buns and Homemade Cinnamon Rolls.
In the meantime, I make my apple filling which is just apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter. I add a little cornstarch to make it thicker. I then allow the apples to cool because this will be my filling. From there, the rest is easy and straight forward! You rolls them up, slice them, and allow them to rise one more time and bake! Yep, it’s that simple. Although using the Hot Roll mix is easier to use (in my opinion), it will still take some time to make these Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls.
The Fall season is upon us and these Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls are the perfect start to Fall baking!
