Apple Cinnamon Rolls

rolls1Everyone falls in love, right?  Let me just say I completely agree, because I am in love with cinnamon rolls!  I have been for sometime.  Nothing beats homemade though, nothing, not even Cinnabon! Homemade is great, and somehow just tastes more wholesome than store-bought. I am not going to lie, if I don’t have time to make homemade I make store-bought, but I prefer homemade, who doesn’t?

I don’t have a recipe for you, but just some tips when making cinnamon rolls.  When rolling out the dough, I lay down plastic wrap and sprinkle it with flour, then there isn’t a mess to clean up.  You can use any cinnamon roll recipe off pinterest and just add one granny smith apple.  I cut the apple in tiny pieces and add a little lemon juice, it keeps the apples from turning brown.  Then I just add the apples on top of the cinnamon/sugar mixture, then roll!  I save a few apple bits to put on top of the cinnamon rolls before baking.

I am not going to lie, these things are amazing!  I could eat and eat and eat them!  If you have never made homemade cinnamon rolls, they really aren’t hard! The recipe is simple and you can whip it up pretty quick.  Now you can even find yeast free recipes on pinterest, but I really like using active yeast, I like how well the rolls rise.  So yummy.  For icing I use my own recipe, 2 tbs butter, 1/4-1/2 cup of powdered sugar, and one or two tbs of milk (or add milk till its spreadable consistency).
