Apple Stuffed Cinnamon Buns

This idea came to me when I was shopping for Crescent Rolls for my apples in a blanket Recipe: Find here:

Apples in a Blanket

I saw the packaged cinnamon buns- and I thought WHY NOT? Isn’t that basically what I am doing anyways? Stuffing the rolls with apples and then rolling it cinnamon and sugar, why not buy that pre made?

So I bought the cinnamon buns. I thought how should I do this: so this is what I did.

Took the roll and cut it in half- with a very sharp knife. However I didn’t go all the way through the middle I left it like a sandwich rolls.

Stuffed it with a few apples from the apple pie filling in a can.

 

Closed them back up and baked them by following the package.

When they came out of the oven I frosted them with the frosting it came with. Delectable.

They were wondrous! I was so proud of myself for coming up with this. A great home made twist- on something already made for you. STUPID EASY.

Success!!!

Pumpkin Blankets

So If you remember , I made these before, and they were BOMB.

Apples in a Blanket

So simple so Easy, But as I said I wanted to try pumpkin.. so I saw something on pinterest that wasn’t an actual recipe that said mix pumpkin and cream cheese.

So I grabbed my four year old cousin and we began baking. I mixed One can of pumpkin, and 3/4 bar of cream cheese. I also had two cans of pillsbury rolls.

Right off the bat I could tell it was too much filling. Just like the apple ones, so you could really double the tubes of  crescent rolls and buy 4.

It also…didn’t taste good. So I had some brown sugar, some white sugar, some cinnamon, some nutmeg.. was not improving, then  I added more brown sugar. I realized, it was as good as it was going to get, began putting a spoonful on each roll, rolled them, then handed them to my cousin who rolled them in cinnamon and sugar. She was making them quick “for all her customers.”

I baked them and when they came out they looked tasty. Now, they were alright. And there were none left over after the party, but they just weren’t GREAT. Like the apples. I decided that next time skip the cream cheese. It would taste much better. My aunt said she would like them for breakfast. They were tasty but not pumpkiny tasty. So although they passed family inspection ( I was even asked for the recipe) By my standards it was a …

FAIL.

Cinnamon Heaven

Okay, so I saw this and thought it looked easy enough and tried it on a whim.

Sugary Crumb Pizza 

So I made the pizza according to the recipe ,but I found I had a lot more crumbs and that I could of used two cans of rolls.

Then when it came to the frosting I read the instructions wrong ( of course) and put in a TABLESPOON of Vanilla. oops. but I stil put it on the pizza, and it still tasted good, and it actually came out looking like this:

 

Success!
