You only need a handful of simple ingredients for this cinnamon roll apple bake! Get all the info on these ingredients in the recipe card below.

  • Canned cinnamon rolls- either the Grand ones or a regular 10 count tube. Any canned cinnamon roll brand will work
  • Can of apple pie filling- use your favorite brand
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Brown sugar- can use either light brown sugar or dark brown sugar
  • All purpose flour
  • Butter- I prefer to use unsalted butter, but salted would work

How to Make Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Combine the flour, brown sugar, and butter in a small bowl. Mix with a fork to combine. Don’t overmix- you don’t want a mushy mess. Once mixed, set aside. Preheat oven to 350F.

Grease your baking dish or use nonstick cooking spray and place each of the canned cinnamon rolls inside.

Pour the heavy whipping cream all over and in between each roll, covering as much as possible.

Pour the can of apple pie filling in a bowl and cut the apples into smaller pieces using a sharp knife. Then pour the apples and filling mixture all over the rolls and baking pan.

Cover the pie filling and rolls with the crumble mixture you made from step one.

Place baking dish in the oven and bake for 35. minutes, or until your cinnamon rolls are golden brown in color and the brown sugar and pie filling will be bubbling.

Once they’ve baked, remove the dish from the oven and let it cool on a cooling rack.

Add cinnamon roll glaze if desired and serve.

How to Make Apple Cinnamon Rolls from Canned Biscuits

Instead of using canned cinnamon roll dough, you can use canned biscuits and make your own cinnamon rolls. Roll out the dough using a rolling pin, add a cinnamon sugar mixture, then roll the dough up into a cinnamon roll shape if possible. Otherwise you can just stuff the mixture into the biscuit dough. Then cover all of your biscuit dough pieces with the apple pie filing and cinnamon crumb mixture to create some delicious Apple Cinnamon Biscuits.


You can store your apple crumble cinnamon rolls in a few different ways!

When storing them at room temperature, they’ll last for about 2 days. Leftovers should be placed in an airtight container or wrapped tightly with plastic wrap and aluminum foil.

Alternatively, you can keep these gooey cinnamon roll bites even longer by refrigerating them for up to 5 days. Or, you can choose to freeze them for up to 3-6 months. To do that, I suggest placing them in a large freezer safe container.

Let the cinnamon rolls thaw before reheating in the oven until warmed through.

Tips and Variations

  • As mentioned above, you can make this with traditional canned cinnamon roll dough or with canned biscuits.
  • You can make your own apple pie filling if desired instead of using a canned premade one. You can use tart or sweet apples.
  • The cooking time needed may vary depending on the brand of dough that you use and your heat source. So be sure to keep an eye on your apple cinnamon rolls as they bake.
  • You can use a different sized casserole dish if desired just keep in mind how much room you will actually be using with your cinnamon rolls and the filling and apple crumble. If you use a smaller pan, you may have to wrap your cinnamon buns tighter.

What else can I top these Cinnamon Apple Biscuits with?

Feel free to use the glaze that comes with the cinnamon rolls, or make a cream cheese frosting, or something else to top your easy cinnamon rolls with. A few other delicious ideas would be:

  • A scoop of vanilla ice cream
  • Caramel sauce or caramel glaze
  • Crushed nuts or chopped nuts like chopped walnuts or pecans for those who love texture
  • Buttercream frosting
  • Homemade simple glaze made from cinnamon, powdered sugar and water or milk
