How to Make Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Step-by-Step

  1. INSTRUCTIONS FOR FILLING
    On medium heat, melt butter in a large frying pan
  2. Once butter is melted add apples, brown sugar and cinnamon and cook on medium heat for five minutes, stirring regularly
  3. Remove from heat and set aside to cool while making dough
  4. INSTRUCTIONS FOR ROLLS...

    Preheat oven to 400 F.
  5. In a microwave safe dish, heat buttermilk for 30 seconds. You want it to be warm, but not hot
  6. Once buttermilk is warm, add oil and stir to combine
  7. In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar and salt
    In a large bowl, mix buttermilk, oil and yeast with a spoon. Allow to rest for 5 minutes
  8. Add 3 cups of flour mixture and egg to the bowl and knead until combined. If dough is still sticky after all the flour has been kneaded in, add remaining 1/2 cup of flour and knead until the dough it soft and no longer sticking to the sides
  9. On a lightly-floured surface, roll dough out into a large rectangle approximately 1/2 inch thick.
    Evenly spread dough with the sautéed apple filling mixture
  10. Beginning with the long side closest to you, tightly roll dough to opposite side, pinching the seam together at the end.
  11. Cut rolls into 12 even pieces and place in a greased 9-by-13 inch pan
    Cover pan with a warm damp cloth and allow rise for about 25 minutes in a dark, warm place
  12. Once rolls have risen, bake at 400 F for 15 minutes, or until slightly browned.
    While rolls are baking, prepare your caramel glaze:
  13. INSTRUCTIONS FOR CARAMEL GLAZE:

    In a medium saucepan, melt caramel, cream and butter. Once melted, remove from heat and add confectioners’ sugar and sea salt. Whisk until smooth
  14. When rolls are done baking, remove from oven, cool for 5 minutes, and pour glaze
    Allow glaze to set for 15 minutes before serving.
  15. TOPPING SUGGESTIONS:

    After you glaze the rolls, make them extra decadent with:

    • Crushed pecans
    • Chopped almonds
    • Diced bacon
    • Caramel sauce
    • Frosting
    • Raisins
    • Maple syrup
