We couldn’t let apple season pass by without one more apple recipe: Apple Cinnamon Rolls. Reminiscent of traditional cinnamon rolls, these used freeze dried apples in the dough as well as the filling to give it that ultimate apple kick. So even if you don’t get to go apple picking this autumn, you can still enjoy a baked apple treat, topped with cinnamon cream cheese frosting no less.
Today (October 4) is National Cinnamon Bun Day in Sweden! This day was created back in 1999 as a way for Sweden’s ‘Home Baking Council’ to celebrate their fortieth birthday. Autumn in Sweden is very similar to autumn here in the US. It is the harvest high season and home baking is something occurring in many homes across the country. There is just nothing like a fresh, hot, gooey cinnamon bun on a crisp autumn morning. I will admit that this sweet treat is one of my all time favorites! I have fond memories of hot cinnamon buns, fresh from the oven, coated in cream cheese icing being served every Christmas morning. This Christmas tradition is still carried out at my parents home and now my own home each year. Because this is one of my favorite desserts, I have created several variations over the years. This newest creation I believe will be one of your favorites as well.
