Apple Pie Cinnamon Roll Muffins

Indulge in the irresistible flavors of fall with our delectable Apple Pie Cinnamon Roll Muffins—a delightful fusion of classic apple pie and comforting cinnamon rolls, all baked into convenient muffin form.

To begin, prepare a batch of your favorite cinnamon roll dough, whether homemade or store-bought. Roll out the dough into a rectangle and sprinkle it generously with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar, infusing it with warm and aromatic flavors.

Next, it’s time to prepare the apple pie filling. Toss together diced apples with a blend of sugar, cinnamon, and a squeeze of lemon juice for a sweet and tangy filling that’s bursting with fall flavor. Spoon the apple pie filling evenly over the cinnamon-sugar-coated dough, ensuring that each muffin will be filled with juicy apple goodness.

Now, carefully roll up the dough into a tight spiral and slice it into individual rolls. Place each roll into a muffin tin lined with parchment paper or silicone liners, allowing them to rise until they’re puffy and doubled in size.

While the rolls are rising, whip up a simple glaze by mixing together powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. This luscious glaze will add the perfect finishing touch to your Apple Pie Cinnamon Roll Muffins, adding a sweet and decadent layer of flavor.

Bake the muffins in a preheated oven until they’re golden brown and fragrant, filling your kitchen with the irresistible aroma of freshly baked cinnamon rolls and apple pie. Once cooled slightly, drizzle the muffins with the prepared glaze, allowing it to drip down the sides for an extra touch of sweetness.

Serve these Apple Pie Cinnamon Roll Muffins warm alongside a steaming cup of coffee or tea for the ultimate fall treat. Whether enjoyed for breakfast, brunch, or dessert, these muffins are sure to be a hit with family and friends alike. So grab a muffin, take a bite, and savor the comforting flavors of autumn in every delicious bite.
