Ingredients

You only need 3 ingredients:

  • Canned apple pie filling: This is the star of the show, bringing a rich, fruity flavor to your dish. Each can of filling adds a lovely sweetness and texture, making the rolls extra special. My favorite brand is Aldi apple pie filling.
  • Canned cinnamon rolls: The convenience of pre-made cinnamon roll dough means less prep time and more enjoying! These rolls will puff up beautifully in the oven, wrapping around the apple filling for a perfect blend of flavors. My favorite brand of cinnamon rolls is Pillsbury, although store brands work as well.
  • ½ cup of heavy cream: This adds a luxurious richness to the filling, making it creamier and more indulgent. It’s a simple addition that elevates the whole dish.

Make Half a Recipe for a Smaller Crowd

To make half a recipe in an 8×8″ baking pan, use one can of apple pie filling, one tube of cinnamon rolls and ¼ cup heavy cream. It will take less time to bake so watch it closely.

Make it Quick: Cinnamon Rolls and Apple Pie Filling

This recipe is meant to be quick and easy. For the semi-homemade method, there are 4 simple steps:

  • Spread the apple pie filling in the bottom of a 9×13″ casserole dish.
  • Open the can of cinnamon rolls and cut each roll into 4 pieces. Sprinkle the cinnamon roll pieces evenly overtop the apple pie filling.
  • Pour the heavy cream over the top of the cinnamon rolls.
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, then drizzle with icing.

Make it From Scratch

Want to bake this sweet treat from scratch? Use our own homemade apple pie filling or fried apples recipe that uses fresh apples.

Then visit our homemade cinnamon rolls, but only make half a recipe. Otherwise it won’t all fit in the baking pan. You want to give those warm cinnamon rolls plenty of room to rise.

Drizzle the top with powdered sugar glaze or cream cheese cinnamon roll icing.

Serving Suggestions

Once you’ve baked this breakfast bake to a golden brown perfection, it’s time to serve it up! Here are a few ideas to make your Cinnamon Rolls and Apple Pie Filling even more irresistible:

  • Warm and Inviting: Serve the rolls warm for the ultimate comfort food experience. It is impossible to resist!
  • Add a Topping: Consider a sprinkle of brown sugar or chopped pecans on top just before serving, which will add a delightful crunch and a hint of extra sweetness. You can also drizzle with maple syrup.
  • Creamy Accompaniments: A dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream can make this dish even more delightful, especially if you’re serving it as a dessert.

Storing and Reheating

If you find yourself with leftovers (which might be a rare occurrence!), here’s how to keep them tasting fresh:

  • Storing: Allow the cinnamon roll bake to cool to room temperature before storing. Place them in an airtight container or wrap them tightly with plastic wrap. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  • Reheating: To reheat, simply cover the leftovers with foil and place in a preheated oven at 350°F for about 10 minutes or until it is warmed through. You can also microwave leftovers by the plate for a quick reheat.

Can this be made with your homemade cinnamon rolls and still turn out? Have you ever tried? This recipe is wonderful but just wondered about all homemade to take it up a notch. I love baking from scratch.
