Hobbit Meals: Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls

Hobbit Meals

I’ve always made cinnamon rolls from a can so I thought it was time I try to make it from scratch. I thought it would be something special over the holidays and found this Apple Pie Cinnamon Roll recipe and knew this was the one!

Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls

Recipe: The Hopeless Housewife

This whole adventure is something new for me. Making the dough with yeast and waiting for it to rise and such is something I’ve never done. As a result this recipe is not something you can just whip up one morning. I started this the night before so in the morning I could just bake it and make the icing.

I am happy to report that I was able to make this with no incidents! This was a lot of work followed by a lot of waiting. I was up real late preparing everything and I was super pleased when my end result actually looked a little like a cinnamon roll. It didn’t look anywhere close to as pretty as the pictures from the recipe blog but whatever. I was exhausted but happy with my efforts.

I had no idea cinnamon rolls were so much work! Well maybe not all recipes are but this certainly was. Next time I’m in a bakery with cinnamon rolls, I’ll need to remember to thank the baker for their hard work!

The next morning I woke up and cooked them up and iced them. They were delicious! Really sweet but delicious. It was sweet enough that after munching on it for a bit, Baby Hobbit asked if she could could have something healthier. Yeah it’s a sometimes food for sure and the effort required to make it definitely means it’s not something I’m going to make a lot.

    I think they look great! I never do *pretty* no matter how hard I try but, most of the time, the food is tasty. It’s why I refer to so much of my food as rustic, lol.

    Oh these look so good! I made cinnamon rolls for my family on Christmas morning as well. The house always smells amazing afterward. Definitely going to have to give these a try!
