Apple Cinnamon Roll Recipe

Baking is not a favorite past time of mine, but I LOVE eating yummy baked goods. My husband is the breakfast chef in our home. This Apple Cinnamon Roll recipe is a family recipe that his mother taught him. I love watching him bake & cook in our kitchen. Today's recipe was made by my husband with a little prep help & photography from myself. I hope you enjoy learning how to make our family's favorite Apple Cinnamon Rolls & try them in your kitchen soon!

Let's get started!

Preheat oven to 425 degrees


2 cups sifted flour
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk
1 TBSP Cinnamon (approximately)
2 TBSP Sugar (approximately)
5 TBSP butter
2 apples

Mix dry ingredients together in bowl. 

Mix in 1/4 cup Crisco

Add 3/4 cup milk

Stir ingredients 

Mix with hands to create ball of dough

Lay ball of dough on floured surface & roll out into thin layer (approx 1/8 inch thick)

Melt 5 TBSP butter. Brush melted butter onto flat dough. 

Sprinkle cinnamon in an even layer on top of butter. Next, sprinkle sugar over top of the cinnamon. Add until completely covered. 

Peel & shred two apples

Sprinkle shredded apples evenly over top of dough. 

Start rolling dough from the long side until it is completely rolled up.

Cut 3/4 inch slices & place on greased cookie sheet

Recipe makes approximately 16 Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Place in pre-heated oven at 425 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. 

Delicious, easy & home made cinnamon rolls hot out of the oven!
