Apple Filled Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Walnut Frosting are made with fresh apples that have been cooked down into a sauce with sugar and cinnamon and layered in a soft delicious cinnamon roll. Baked to perfection and topped with a Maple Walnut Frosting!
One of my favorite indulgences ever is cinnamon rolls. I look at pictures and drool and want. Usually I do not make because it only means that it has to be devoured and just one is never enough. That was the case with these apple filled cinnamon rolls I found over at An Opera Singer in the Kitchen. Noelle, the author of this awesome blog, truly is a singer and you can read all about her here! I was fortunate enough to have received Noelle’s blog for my Secret Recipe Club assignment this last month.
I knew that this time around I wanted to bake something and I absolutely love pumpkin. Noelle has 3 recipes on her blog that I have bookmarked to make – Pumpkin Fritters, Pumpkin Spice French Toast, and Fluffy Vegan Pumpkin Biscuits. However the winner ended up being nothing pumpkin but something I absolutely can’t resist, Apple Filled Cinnamon Rolls!
As you can tell, from the title of my post, I did change this recipe up. I decided to not make a vegan version and wanted to add maple and walnuts to the mix.
I liked the idea of an apple filling in the rolls. I felt it would help to keep them moist as well as taste delicious! I made my own apple filling with apples I got from my Field Goods
package. I love the filling! I did use real butter and that buttery taste was just too good to resist.
After Grumpy ate his first cinnamon roll, he went out into the kitchen and got seconds. I didn’t realize his seconds also included the half portion of what was left of the roll I took as I went out to get my other half and he had not only taken another huge roll, but my half! These did not go to waste by any means!
