Tip: for easy cleanup, place a cookie sheet under the wire cooling rack to catch the excess frosting that will drip off of the edges.

After you try making this super easy apple dessert, you might want to get creative and try some fun variations. Here are some ideas:

  • Different pie filling – raspberry, peach, cherry, strawberry, or blueberry pie filling instead of apple
  • Cinnamon – dust the top of the top of the finished apple pie cups with cinnamon
  • Cream cheese – beat 8 tablespoons of cream cheese with 1-2 tablespoons of granulated sugar, then add a tablespoon of the mixture to the apple pie cups before adding the apples.
  • Orange – use orange flavored cinnamon rolls for an extra hint of flavor.

    Made for the weekly family gathering and they were delish! So simple to make and they tasted just like an apple fritter! Will try the cream cheese filling with apple pie filling on top next! This recipe is a definite keeper!!

  3. I used the jumbo cinnamon rolls, put them in a big muffin pan. I mix up some crumble and put it on top of each. Bake at 375* for 26 mins. Put cream cheese icing after baked. Yummy.

    1. These have been a success in my household, between hubbster and toddler, but I was wondering if you had any recommendations on reheating?

  4. Looks easy & delious  in my area have never seen apple pie filling a can. Would have to make from scratch.

    I had stumbled across this recipe before and bookmarked it, since my house of worship will occasionally have pot lucks. Last month I found out one was planned for just this passed Sunday. Saturday I bought 4 cans of cinnamon rolls and 3 cans of apple pie filling. There were over 40 people planning to go, but I knew we had members that were either diabetic or gluten intolerant, so I planned on making 32. I did make 32. I tried one to see how they tasted and I was ecstatic. However, I wanted to make sure I wasn’t fooling myself, so I had my 24 year old son try one. He liked it, too!

    I took the remaining 30 with me. I came home with 4. I was asked about how to make them and I did pass it along, including giving one lady a link to this page so she’d see where I got it.

    Thank You!

    That’s the first time I’ve taken anything to a pot luck and it was great that people enjoyed it!

    These were soooo easy to make. It was harder opening the cinnamon rolls than it was making these. And they are soooo good too. Did with whipped cream topping instead. Didn’t have any left overs either

  7. Is there any way to do this camping over a fire? I’m thinking foil over top and place over indirect fire but have no clue how long or if this would even work.

    1. We did these over the fire at a Gems weekend retreat. We had sticks almost the diameter of a baseball bat, bark removed and sanded smooth. (Make these ahead of time at home, rinse under water) Before using coat end with margarine or butter and form your dough around the end covered with margarine and pressing it firmly on with your hand and roast it over the fire being sure to constantly turn it just like you would a marshmallow until it is done. Then let cool for a couple minutes, slide off and fill with your pie filling.
