  • 2 red apples (I used red delicious, but you can also use honey crisp or pink lady
  • 1 can refrigerated cinnamon roll dough (use the one that unravels for this recipe)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • nonstick cooking spray
  • powdered sugar for serving


  • Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Spray a 9-inch round baking dish with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Cut each apple into two pieces lengthwise. Remove the core.
  • Using a sharp paring knife or mandolin, cut the apple halves lengthwise to 1/8-inch thick slices.
  • Add apple slices in a large microwave-safe bowl. Toss with lemon juice.
  • In a small bowl, mix brown sugar and melted butter together.
  • Add the mixture to the apple slices, stirring to coat.
  • Microwave for about 2 minutes or until the apple slices are pliable. Strain out any accumulated liquid.
  • Take 8 apple slices and arrange in a straight row with an inch of overlap. Starting from one end, roll the slices together to make a rose. Set aside.
  • Open the can of cinnamon rolls. Unwind several rolls and arrange into a large spiral to fill up the dish. (watch the video above on how to do this)
  • Place the apple rose in the middle of the cinnamon dough spiral.
  • Insert the rest of apple slices to fill the gaps between the cinnamon rolls in the spiral. Tighten up the cinnamon roll so that it can hold the apple slices properly.
  • When the dish is full, bake for 20-25 minutes until the edges starts to brown.
  • Remove from oven and dust with powered sugar. Serve and enjoy!
