EASY 15-Minute Apple Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Print Friendly

These lovely apple cinnamon rolls were kind of an experiment . . . and they turned out amazing!! My little sister was over one afternoon and she needed an after-school snack . . . we looked through my pantry and fridge and decided to put two of my favorite things together: apple pie filling and cinnamon rolls. It is seriously a match made in heaven!

I just used the cinnamon rolls that you can buy in the refrigerated section of the grocery store and a can of apple pie filling. I place the pre-made cinnamon rolls in a 9×13″ baking pan about 2 inches apart. I then scooped a large spoonful of pie filling on top of the rolls.
The instructions on the cinnamon rolls package said to bake them at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, but with the apple filling on top, they actually had to bake a lot longer. I think that I baked them for about 18 minutes. Once I pulled them out of the oven, I drizzled the frosting that came with the cinnamon rolls package on top . . .
They were so good! I HIGHLY recommend that you make some for yourself! Plus, they are so easy. Anybody can do this! :)
These would probably be delicious if you made your cinnamon rolls from scratch and used homemade apple pie filling . . . but let’s be honest . . . I don’t really have time for that at this point in my life. :)
If you try this using homemade rolls, let me know! I would love to hear how they turned out!
Anyway, here is the “recipe” if you want to print it out!

1 can apple pie filling
1 tube package cinnamon rolls (found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store- mine had 8 rolls)
frosting (included with the cinnamon rolls)

Open package and place cinnamon rolls 2″ apart in a lightly greased 9×13″ baking pan. Scoop a large spoonful of apple pie filling on top of each cinnamon roll. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes (time will depend on your oven, so just check often). Remove from oven and drizzle with frosting while they are still warm.

    I wish we had packaged cinnamon rolls here in France.
    Anyway, we don’t even have cinammon rolls sold in bakeries, so I need to make my own… unless you consider giving a tube away and sending it to France? ;-D
    Have a lovely day!

    I made these last night…they came out horrible!!! I used non-flaky cinnabon rolls by Pillsbury and store brand apple pie filling. The apple filling didn’t stay on the roll and stuck to the pan (even though it was greased). I have since found many variations of this recipe and they all call for either a round cake pan or muffin tins. I’m thinking of trying the muffin tin so the apple filling stays on top. If anyone tries it this way before I do, please email me at Subject line: Apple Cinnamon Roll

    I took the can of cinnamon rolls and made them into a pie crust(exactly enough for a pie plate)and added my fresh apple filling. It was FABULOUS- Cinnamon Apple Pie.

    O h, these would be wonderful !!!!!I know they are !!! Here’s how I made mine…….. I broke up each biscuit into 3 or 4 pieces. Then I rolled them into rough balls. I put them in a muffin tin a few at a time… I chopped the apple pie filling smaller and added some along with a mixture of cinnamon and brown sugar, raisins and a few pieces of small chopped up walnuts, then added a few more pieces of dough till I had used it all. I baked it at 325 for about9 to 11 minutes… Wow….. Yummy
