Apple Cinnamon Roll Dessert

I saw something like this on Facebook when I was looking around one day. I wish I had saved the link so that I could share where the recipe originated but I didn’t even think about it at the time so I had to wing it when I tried it the other day.

What we ended up with was a wonderfully smelling, and tasting, dessert. I thought it would end up more like a cake… or a monkey bread sort of dessert, but the cubes of cinnamon rolls stayed separated and I just ended up spooning it on the plates when serving. No matter how it looked, the taste more than made up for it!

Here are the ingredients I used to make this dessert.

The first thing I did was to wash, peel, core and dice the apples and place them in a microwave safe bowl with the first amount of brown sugar, cinnamon and water, mixing to combine.

I wrapped the bowl in plastic wrap and cooked the apples on high heat for about 3 minutes, until they started to soften.

I cut up the cinnamon rolls into small cubes and placed them in my well greased 9 ” round baking pan.

I spooned the apples on top of the cubed cinnamon rolls.

In a small microwave safe bowl, I melted the butter/ margarine….

And then poured this mixture over top of the apples and cinnamon roll cubes.

I baked it uncovered at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, until the edges were browned and it was cooked through.

I placed the icing that came with the cinnamon rolls in a small bowl and microwaved it on high heat for about 30 seconds, so it was runny enough to drizzle over the cinnamon rolls/apples.

Then served it still nice and warm and fragrant on small plates. This would also be awesome topped with some vanilla ice cream!
