Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Published by at 4:08 pm under Desserts

Walking our dog Chester on our street has given us the opportunity to befriend a lot of our neighbors. One in particular loves chatting with us all the time, and was generous enough to give us a bunch of apples from his apple tree. We thought it would be fun to make a dessert with it, so we came across a recipe for Apple Cinnamon Rolls. It’s quite a lot of work to do everything from scratch, but we had all the ingredients at home, so we gave it a shot.

I love the colors of these apples! And I love it more because they were free.

Cut the roll into equal pieces and place in the bottom of a greased 9x13 baking pan. Cover the pan with a clean towerl and allow the rolls to rise until at least doubled in size, about 1 to 1 1/2 hours. You can also let them rise overnight in the fridge.

After baking in a 350-degree oven for 30-35 minutes, the rolls should come out golden brown.

    Great job! These look so soft and flavorful. I guess we can all thank Chester for this recipe.

    That looks delicious! I’ve been wanting to try make some cinnamon rolls, but I was too intimidated by all the work. Yours turned out looking great!

    These look amazing! On a Sunday morning these would totally hit the spot:)

    Huyen – it was definitely a lot of work! Daniel pretty much did the whole thing himself! I’m sure yours would turn out great too – you have the hands of a baker! Good luck!!

    Your cinnamon rolls look wonderful – and I love the idea to add apples. Fantastic! Lately I have been starting to crave more of the “autumn” foods – like apples and cinnamon. I will definitely give these a try!

    Oh yum! It looks sooo good! I bet the whole house smelled really good while it’s baking =)

    Totally worth the effort, especially when you have everything on hand. Sounds sweet enough to eat without a glaze too.

    My problem with this…I would eat the whole pan! I have not made cinnamon rolls in a long while…need to try this one…

    I just made two loaves of raisin bread and your cinnamon rolls are just down my alley. Beautiful presentation! If you like cinnamon the way I do, suggestion, increase cinnamon to a tablespoon –the flavor and scent is wonderful. Touché!

    Hey! The rolls look delicious! I was wondering how much of sugar, yeast, butter, milk and eggs to add to the batter???? And also, how many apples to the mixture?? Thanks!!
