I love the pillowy soft crust and a velvety apple pie filling of these mini apple pie like treats. Excellent for parties, even potlucks, and holidays! A fabulous addition to your long list of Christmas must-have this year and the years to come.

Ingredients

2 13-oz packages refrigerated cinnamon roll dough, I used Pillsbury
1 21-oz can apple pie filling
Icing, from cinnamon roll package, or ice cream

HOW TO MAKE CINNAMON ROLL APPLE PIE CUPS

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 375 degrees F or 190 degrees C.

Step 2: Use a nonstick baking spray to grease a 12-cup standard muffin tin.

Step 3: Unroll a cinnamon roll package on a light flour work surface. Using your fingers or a rolling pin, flatten the dough.

Step 4: Into each muffin cup, press individual flattened cinnamon roll to fit.

Step 5: Spoon until 3/4 full the apple pie filling per muffin cup.

Step 6: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 15 to 18 minutes or until puffy and golden.

Step 7: Allow cooling in the pan for at least 10 minutes. Take them out of the cups by sliding a small spatula around the edges.

Optional: Drizzle the cups with icing, but first heat the icing in the microwave on low for at least 10 seconds. Serve them alternately with ice cream or caramel sauce. Enjoy!

Notes:

1. Follow the specified package direction when using any kind of cinnamon roll dough.

2. To make a homemade apple pie filling, simmer 4 large (peeled and sliced) apples, 2 tbsp butter, 1tbsp lemon juice, half a tsp cinnamon, and 1/4 cup sugar in a saucepan for about 5 to 7 minutes over medium heat until soft.

3. If using large cinnamon rolls, you need to slice them to fit the muffin cups.

4. These cinnamon roll apple pie cups you can make a day ahead, you just need to store them in an airtight container at room temperature. Or freeze them for up to 2 months.
