These amazing Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls combine the delicious flavors of a soft and fluffy cinnamon roll and everyone’s favorite fall dessert, apple pie! These homemade cinnamon rolls are super easy and are made with crescent dough! Easy and delicious!
Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls are the perfect easy fall dessert recipe that you will eat all apple season long! Are you an apple person or a pumpkin person? While I enjoy both, I definitely prefer apple recipes! In September and October, gimme all the apple recipes. Once Thanksgiving rolls around, I like a good pumpkin muffin or pie, but would always choose the apple pie over the pumpkin.
I like to bake but I especially love when I can find a recipe that takes a shortcut, like using a pre made dough or canned filling. Semi-homemade desserts can be just as good as completely homemade and certainly makes your life easier.
When I am entertaining, I always take a shortcut for dessert and focus on the main meal. Just because you are taking a shortcut doesn’t mean you are cutting short on any of the flavor! These Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls use a crescent dough and the flaky, butter layers makes these so good!
Cinnamon rolls are most definitely one of my favorite fall breakfast recipes but when combined with apple pie, they are even better! These rolls are perfect for a weekend breakfast or even for Thanksgiving morning!
