Glazed Apple Daisy

Nicole Bredeweg


Another of our old favorites -- this one comes from an old Pampered Chef Seasons pamphlet. I've modified it, taking out all the use-this-special-device stuff. I also grew up greasing and SUGARING the pan (rather than flour), so that's in there, as well. This is not really a super-sweet dessert -- it's relying on the cinnamon rolls and natural sweeteners in the orange juice to do that.

  • 2 can(s)
    8.75 oz grand-size cinnamon rolls with icing
  • 1

  • 1/4 c

  • 1 tsp
    orange peel
  • 4 tsp
    orange juice

How to Make Glazed Apple Daisy


  1. Preheat oven to 350*F. Set icing aside. Separate cinnamon rolls. Cut each cinnamon roll in half. Grease and sugar an 11” round baking dish. Arrange cut halves in a circle, pinwheel fashion, leaving center open. Gently press cinnamon rolls together with fingers to seal. Roll dough out to edge of pan.
  2. Mix apple, walnut, and 3 teaspoons of orange juice. Spread apple mixture evenly over cinnamon rolls. Bake 25 - 30 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. While daisy is cooking, place icing, orange peel, and remaining 1 tsp of orange juice in bowl. Place over heat coil that vents the ovens heat. When finished cooking, remove daisy from oven. Stir the icing mixture, then drizzle over the daisy. Serve warm.
  4. **Note** -- I used seasonal flavored (pumpkin) cinnamon rolls and they were very good! Also, per my first picture, I tried rolling the cinnamon rolls out on a pastry sheet -- and it worked well. . . Until I tried to put it in a pan, then it fell apart.
