My absolute favorite thing to bake this time of year is cinnamon rolls and I went all out this year with these Caramel Apple Butter Cinnamon Rolls with Apple Cider Cream Cheese Icing. I made these for Discover, A blog by World Market. This post is sponsored by Cost Plus World Market.
Cinnamon rolls and sweet rolls are most definitely my downfall. I LOVE them. They are so ooey gooey delicious. Perfect for a cold day with a hot cup of coffee. The sugar rush is so worth every last bite. When we lived in Portland, OR, the grocery store near our house, or more like mini mall it was so huge, had a Cinnabon INSIDE the store. Want to know what torture is? Running to the grocery store for a few items when hungry and the second you step into the store you get blasted in the face with the warm, sugary cinnamony aromas of the freshly baked rolls. Never in my life have I shown such restraint and willpower to not buy a Cinnabon roll every time I went grocery shopping. I was sad and happy at the same time when Cinnabon left the store and they replaced it with a photo center. Odd replacement, but my hips thanked me. Too bad I know how to make cinnamon rolls my to my hips dismay.
These are a bit messier than traditional cinnamon rolls since the apple butter filling is pretty gooey. Work quickly when rolling and slicing the rolls and getting them in the pan to rise before baking. And try not to eat too much of the filling on its own. It’s really tempting since it is so good.
These caramel apple butter cinnamon rolls are pretty awesome on their own with only apple cider syrup poured over the top or go for it and slather with the apple cider cream cheese icing AND a drizzle of the apple cider syrup. These are decadent so don’t even think about how many calories they are, just enjoy them.
