Recipe type: dessert
2½ tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1½ cup store bought apple pie filling
¼ cup all purpose flour
¼ cup + 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
¼ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
¼ cup cinnamon baking chips
1 can (12.4 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated cinnamon rolls
icing from the cinnamon rolls package (optional)
whipped cream (optional)
caramel-flavored syrup (optional)
preheat oven to 400F. lightly spray muffin or cupcake tin.
mix together butter, flour, brown sugar, walnuts, and baking chips. set aside
take out 1½ cups of apples from the filling container (i don't like a ton of the apple sauce that comes in the storebought filling containers...so i separated the apples as much as i could.) chop into small pieces. set aside
take each cinnamon roll and flatten into a thin disc. place each in a muffin cup. press them down firmly into each muffin/cupcake cup and try to bring them up the sides as much as possible. (see pic above)
place a spoonful of apple filling into each cup
top each with the brown sugar/walnut mixture
bake for 10-15 minutes or until the cinnamon rolls are fully cooked.
take out of the oven and allow to cool slightly before taking out of muffin/cupcake tin
drizzle each with the icing and top with whipped cream and caramel (optional)
