This homemade cinnamon bun recipe creatively incorporates two seasonal treats into one by adding elements of apple pie into the filling. These treats are sweet and delicious making for a perfect indulgent breakfast meal or dessert.
Despite the recipe containing elements of two separate sweets, the dish is surprisingly easy to put together to incorporate both flavors. The dough is made using frozen pre-made cinnamon dough that is then rolled with apple pie filling between the layers mixed with vanilla extract, apple pie spice and salt. The rolls can be further topped with caramel or a cream cheese frosting once freshly baked. This recipe would also work well with other fruit pie fillings such as blueberry, strawberry or pumpkin.
The combination of two desserts into one hybrid allows consumers to simlutaneously enjoy two sweets at once.
