Since apple season is in full force, I decided to make my cinnamon roll recipe with an apple butter filling (to fully embrace autumnal vibes).
It turned out even better than anticipated (I immediately consumed two rolls), so I thought I’d share.
I used the same base recipe for cinnamon rolls found here but used a different filling.
Apple Cinnamon Rolls
1/2 cup apple butter (the kind without added sweeteners or sugar)
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
I made the dough as usual, but spread this instead of the usual filling and it turned out well! These do seem to be a bit more gentle than typical cinnamon rolls when placing them into the dish for their proof, so treat them gently.
