Apple Pie Rolls With Cream Cheese Frosting


These apple pie rolls will satisfy all your fall cravings! There’s something so special about apple pie aroma – it’s so warming and cozy! And who doesn’t love cinnamon rolls? Well, I’ve combined the two to give you this recipe! If you’ve tried my cinnamon roll recipe, you already know how delicious those are! I took my classic cinnamon roll recipe and added caramelized and spiced apple pie filling, creating an unforgettable fall dessert. And don’t forget the cream cheese frosting! I love to make a large batch of the frosting and add extra on my roll!

These rolls are so incredibly soft and fluffy, thanks my secret ingredient: heavy cream. It’s added the 10 minute baking mark and it makes these apple pie rolls simple extraordinary! The cream adds a bit of needed moisture to the rolls and pan, preventing them from drying out.

If you want to serve these for breakfast or brunch the next day, these are great to make ahead of time! Simple follow the recipe and instructions, then assemble the rolls in your baking pan and allow them to proof for 15 minutes. Then, cover the pan with plastic wrap and place the pan into the refrigerator until you’re ready to bake! Bake at the same temperature, and don’t forget to add the cream after 10 minutes!

I like to use Granny Smith or Golden Delicious apples for this recipe. You can peel the apples or leave the peel on.


And here’s a before after of the apple pie filling. This smells soo incredible! You’ll want to eat it straight out of the pan!

I like to spread about half of the cream cheese frosting onto the rolls as soon as they come out of the oven, allowing the frosting to melt and coat the rolls really well!
