Servings: 5 rolls


  • 1 can cinnamon rolls (or your homemade dough of choice)
  • 1/2 cup apple pie filling (store-bought or homemade of your choice)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar


  • Preheat oven according to the instructions for your cinnamon rolls.
  • Unroll one cinnamon roll at a time, and roll it out with a rolling pin, making the dough flatter and wider strips.
  • Line the inside of the cinnamon roll dough with the apple pie filling (and replace any cinnamon that came off the dough).
  • Roll the dough back up, making sure the dough is rolling overtop of the apple pie filling and is not pushing the apples out.
  • Place the cinnamon rolls in an ungreased pan, and bake 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Combine honey and brown sugar, drizzle over warm cinnamon rolls, and enjoy!


Make sure to buy the cinnamon rolls that are rolled up, not sliced. If you use Pillsbury, you need to buy the Grands Cinnamon rolls, not the original.
When rolling the apples into the cinnamon rolls, roll from the sides of the dough (what will be the top and bottom of the cinnamon roll). It helps to roll the dough overtop of the apple pieces and keeps them from seeping out the sides.
