Last but not least, the piece de resistance, Sweet Apple Cinnamon Rolls with Caramel Frosting! These are killer guys, trust me on this one. I decided to spice up my normal tried and true cinnamon roll recipe. They are gooey just like the classic, but are studded with sweet apples and topped with a decadent caramel frosting.
If you talk to my daughter Samantha, she will tell you that her favorite food in the world is mommy’s homemade Cinnamon Rolls. When she eats anything, she rates is on what I like to call "The Cinnamon Roll Scale". If she really likes something that I have made, she will say it’s almost as good as my cinnamon rolls. Not many recipes have achieved "Cinnamon Roll" status, but if I can get close, I know it’s a good recipe. She helped me put these together the other day when we made them for a family get together. Although she was a little nervous about apples being in her cinnamon rolls, the caramel frosting soon won her over.
Sweet Apple Cinnamon Rolls make me want to put on a big chunky knit sweater and drink some hot apple cider. They are the best treat for a cool fall night or a fun treat for brunch with family. I recommend eating them warm right out of the oven with the sweet melted caramel frosting. Cinnamon rolls are definitely a labor of love. They take time and patience to put them together. In the end though, that first bite into the warm sticky roll with drippy frosting will make you forget all the time they took to put them together. I love making these on the weekend because they fill the house with all the smells of fall; cinnamon, apples, caramel...be right back, got to make some now!
If you make this recipe, make sure you share a photo with me, I’d love to see all of your creations! #SaporitoKitchen
