The 'Little Spice Jar' recently debuted a recipe for caramel apple cinnamon rolls. Cinnamon buns are a bakery-style treat that is synonymous with lazy Sunday mornings. This recipe puts a seasonal twist on the beloved pastry by adding Granny Smith apples.

The caramel apple cinnamon rolls are based on the recipe used to make traditional cinnamon buns. The base of the dessert consists of a sweet dough that is infused with a cinnamon sugar glaze. However, this recipe kicks things up a notch by adding pieces of Granny Smith apples, chopped pecans and caramel sauce. When served hot, the tartness of the apples helps to balance the sweetness of the cinnamon sugar.

This recipe provides a tasty way to use up any apples leftover from an afternoon of apple picking.
