Apple Cinnamon Rolls | Apple cinnamon roll recipe

An Autumn Breakfast Treat

I made a batch of butter laden brioche dough for some dinner rolls. Half was left in the fridge and I had up to 5 days to use it up. My family adores cinnamon rolls…they were truly in mourning when we could no longer get Sara Lee frozen cinnamon rolls at our supermarket. I knew I’d have to step up my baking game. So, with it being autumn and all, I decided to add some diced apples, sauteed with butter and cinnamon, to this batch of buns. No raisins for this bunch. No-sirree-bob. Adding apples to the mix was already pushing it, but the hubby ate 2 1/2 the first morning. A fine testimonial that these apple cinnamon rolls were A-OK.

Ingredients

  • ½ batch brioche dough, chilled (recipe linked below)
  • 2 baking apples, peeled, cored and diced
