Cinnamon Roll Apple Danish


These are amazing! Cinnamon Roll Apple Danishes that are ready in 15 minutes!


Sometimes I’m making one thing and I get a brilliant idea for another recipe using the same or similar ingredients. It’s actually a little bit annoying as I can’t just concentrate on one recipe, but instead I have no choice to grab those extra ingredients and start busting out a second recipe at the same time. That tends to be a lot of food, which our neighbors can verify usually ends up on their porch so we aren’t eating it all by ourselves. This one though, only one neighbor got it because I enjoyed it way too much. Cinnamon Roll Apple Danish is the best thing ever.

You can use your own cinnamon roll recipe or I’ll be honest with you, we just used a package of Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls. It’s kind of nice actually because the flavor is all taken care of thanks to the cinnamon roll. So here’s what you need to know, unroll the dough with the cinnamon mixture facing up. Cut the dough in half and place the two pieces side by side. Cut the dough in half again and lay side by side for a total of 4 pieces. Now, using your fingers squish all of the dough together. Toss your apples into the middle and pinch the dough together to cover everything, making sure not to forget the ends.

The dough will probably pop open a little at the top as it bakes, but pinching it helps to keep the gap smaller and plus it ends up looking prettier that way so just go with it. Now bake those puppies up and warm the cream cheese frosting that comes with it so you can drizzle it on top as soon as they are done. They are delicious and so scrumptious but most of all, they are so easy.

Cinnamon Roll Apple Danish

Cinnamon Roll Apple Danish


  • 1 Package cinnamon rolls (5 count) with cream cheese frosting
  • 1 granny smith apple, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Unroll one cinnamon roll at a time with the cinnamon filling facing up.
  4. Cut the strip in half and place the two pieces side by side.
  5. Cut the two strips in half again and place side by side (I like to alternate the plain and cinnamon pieces and then carefully spread the cinnamon all over) so you end up with four pieces.
  6. Pinch the dough all together.
  7. Repeat with each cinnamon roll.
  8. Meanwhile, in a microwave safe bowl mix the apples, sugar, butter and cinnamon.
  9. Microwave for 1 minute, stirring halfway through.
  10. Place a few slices of apple in the middle and wrap the dough up and over the tops, pinching to seal together.
  11. Pinch and close the ends as well.
  12. Place on the parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 15-17 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
  13. Remove from the oven.
  14. Warm the cream cheese frosting slightly and drizzle over the danishes.
