This Woman Smashes Cinnamon Rolls Into A Muffin Tin And Creates This Delicious Dessert

This is a fun and easy apple pie cupcake recipe using cinnamon roll dough, fresh apples and cinnamon. These cupcakes are made with store-bought cinnamon rolls that have been flattened into discs and placed into cupcake cups. Then, we fill them with sautéed apples and top with a streusel topping. When chopping your apples, it can be helpful to spritz them with a little lemon juice (teaspoon or so). This way, they will not brown or discolor.

You Will Need
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and diced in to 1/4-inch cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Juice of half lemon (about 1 1/2 tablespoons)
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 can (12.4 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated cinnamon rolls
  • whipped cream
  • caramel-flavored syrup
 
Directions
  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Lightly spray 8 regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. In 10-inch skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. Add apples; cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons brown sugar, the cinnamon and salt. Cook 5 minutes longer or until tender. Stir in lemon juice.
