Cinnamon rolls make the perfect base for this incredible apple-filled ring that’s perfect for a fall brunch or party.
CARAMEL-APPLE CINNAMON ROLL PARTY RING
4 apples, cored and diced
1 cup brown sugar
Never miss a local story.
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
2 tablespoons cinnamon
4 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tubes cinnamon rolls with frosting
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, stir together diced apples, brown sugar, nuts, cinnamon and butter.
Open one tube of rolls and roll each cinnamon roll flat until about 1/4-inch thick.
Line a large pizza baking dish with parchment paper, then arrange the rolled out cinnamon rolls in a circle on top of the parchment. Each circle of dough should overlap slightly. Press the edges together where the cinnamon rolls overlap.
Spoon the diced apple mixture down the middle of the cinnamon rolls in the ring.
Open the second tube of cinnamon rolls. Roll out each cinnamon roll until 1/4-inch thick, then lay the rolled out rolls on top of the apple mixture, lining each of the top-layer cinnamon roll up with each of the bottom-layer rolls.
With a fork or your fingers, gently press the edges of each matching top and bottom cinnamon roll together.
Bake 20-25 minutes, or until the party ring is golden brown. Remove and cool slightly before gently transferring to a serving platter.
Drizzle with the icing included in the cinnamon roll packages. Serve warm or at room temperature. Serves 8.
