Cinnamon rolls get stuffed for fall with cinnamon apples.
When you’re having a party, there’s only one thing to do – pull out the purtiest recipe you’ve got in your pocket and wow your friends.
This recipe is one of those recipes. The ones that have all the girls exclaiming, “Why, Jessica. How DO you do it?” You’ll coyly tuck a stray hair behind your ear, bat eyelashes, and say, “Oh, really. This? It’s positively nothing.”
And you’ll mean it. Because this splendid recipe is easy easy easy. So easy, in fact, that you can plumb near forget you’re having a party, then pull together this Pinterest-worthy apple cinnamon roll ring in less than 30.
Here’s how to make it happen at your next soiree…
Start by dicing four apples. You can peel the outer skins, but there’s no need to if you’re in a hurry. Just core, dice and toss in a bowl.
Spice it up with caramely brown sugar, cinnamon, and melted butter.
Then grab two packs of these gorgeous Grands! Cinnamon Rolls. This is where the magic starts.
You’re gonna grab a piece of parchment and flatten each cinnamon roll out with a rolling pin.
Note: I specified parchment up there because (as you can see) I did not use parchment, and SO wished I had.
Second note: if the cinnamon rolls are sticking to your wooden rolling pin, just spray the tops of them with an eeny weeny bit of nonstick spray.
Place the flattened cinnamon rolls on a large pizza pan or baking pan, lined with a second piece of parchment paper.
Then just spoon your apple filling around the middle of the cinnamon roll ring.
Roll out that second tube of cinnamon rolls and set them on top of the apple filling. Match the top layer of rolls to the bottom layer of rolls. With fork or fingers, press the top and bottom cinnamon rolls together at the edges.
You’ll get a gorgeous ring that looks like apple-stuffed cinnamon rolls, and tastes like apple-stuffed cinnamon rolls, and makes you want to live in an apple-stuffed cinnamon roll.
Transfer it all to a pretty platter (if you please) then…
Drizzle it with the included Cinnabon icing.
Why, Jessica. How DO you do it?
“Oh, really. This? It’s positively nothing.” ;)
