Apple & Pear Filled Cinnamon Rolls

Super Simple Breakfast

Who doesn’t love fresh baked cinnamon buns? I especially love the smell of the house while they are cooking. You know what I do not love, making dough – cue Pillsbury shortcut! It has taken me years to realize, just go ahead and buy the crescent dough sheet – with no seams. No pinching together. What a great find!

I have made these before with chopped apples for the center; but they cooked unevenly, while the center was doughy the outside was over cooked. When I decided to make them again; I knew I still wanted to add apples, instead of chopping – I shaved them. Genius! This helped to create perfect evenly cooked cinnamon rolls.


3 Apples or Pears Shaved

1 Tbl Coconut Oil

1 Tsp Pumpkin Spice

½ Tsp Cinnamon

Squeeze of Lemon Juice


Heat Oil over medium heat

Cook apples and pears down

Add spices, turn off heat

Add Vanilla Paste and Lemon Juice

Transfer to bowl to cool

Roll out Crescent Dough Sheet and spread spiced apples over the whole sheet, edge to edge.

Start rolling keeping the edges tight

Roll up and transfer to fridge ((If you have time, this just helps to not smoosh the cinnamon rolls when cutting))

Slice into 6 rolls ((I Cut in half and then in thirds))

Bake on parchment lined pan

Bake 15- 18 minutes


¼ C Powdered Sugar

1-2 Tbl Vanilla Oat Milk

((Add cinnamon or pumpkin spice if you are feeling feisty and spicy))

Whisk together add milk slowly to get the consistency you desire

Cool buns before glazing

Such a simple way to make bakery tasting pastry!

Double the recipe if you have a bigger family! They will fly off the pan. If you have leftovers, slice them in half lengthwise and dip them into French Toast batter the next morning! Ohhh yum!
