Apples and cinnamon just seem to go hand in hand, don't they? So reworked my cinnamon roll recipe to include apples. What a treat! I'm not sure why I never thought of doing that before now! These are so great and a wonderful fall treat! They make two nice sized pans full of yummy goodness but you can split the recipe in half...or make the regular batch and freeze one...which is what I did. I made up both pans, baked them and frosted them both, then threw one pan in the freezer to thaw and reheat later! Yay for an easy dessert! Give these a try....you'll love them..I promise!
