If you are needing a quick breakfast or dessert idea, these Easy Apple Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing will be perfect. Since we use store bought crescent sheets, they come together quite quickly.
Easy Apple Cinnamon Rolls
Our family really enjoys cinnamon rolls for both breakfast and dessert. Cinnamon rolls from scratch can take a bit of time to prepare and bake. In the past, I have made quite a few recipes using store bought crescent sheets and they work great when I am in a pinch. Since we have been making all things apple these past few weeks, I decided it was time to make some quick and Easy Apple Cinnamon Rolls.
These cinnamon rolls are so simple, they take less than 30 minutes from start to finish. I used store bought apple butter but you can also use Homemade Apple Butter if you have some on hand. I topped our rolls with a Cream Cheese Icing that is super simple. The icing melts right into the rolls so nicely. Oooey and gooey just like we like them.
Grab yourself some crescent sheets, apple butter, and a few other items you probably have on hand and whip these yummy rolls up in a jiffy.
These easy cinnamon rolls were a huge hit with my gang. I made them for the first time last fall and they always vanish as soon as they are iced.
