  • 2 medium apples peeled, cored, and diced small (about 1 1/2 cups apples)
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon (5ml) water
  • 1 can Pillsbury Grands! Cinnamon Rolls 5 rolls
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • cup (67g) packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon (5 ml) heavy whipping cream or milk optional


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9" pie plate or pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Place small diced apples, brown sugar, ground cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon of water in a small bowl. Stir. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and cook on high power for 2-3 minutes, or until apples are just slightly translucent. Drain well.
  • While the apples are cooking, cut each cinnamon roll into 6 pieces. They'll fall apart a little, that's okay. Sprinkle the pieces evenly in the prepared pan. Once the apples are done, drain them well and sprinkle them over the cinnamon roll pieces.
  • Stir the melted butter and brown sugar together, then pour over the top of the apples and cinnamon rolls. Bake for 28-33 minutes or until cooked through in the center.
  • Just before serving, place the icing that came with the cinnamon rolls in a small bowl. Heat for about 10 seconds so it's pourable. Stir in heavy whipping cream (or milk) to make it more of a glaze, then pour over the top of the casserole. Serve warm or room temperature.
  • Store tightly covered for up to 2 days.
