We love that they come out of the oven in convenient individual servings because it means we get one little apple pie all to ourselves. But here’s the best part… the dough? It’s made out of refrigerated cinnamon rolls, you guys. You simply press the dough into the muffin tins, no rolling pin required, and it lends this treat a lovely cinnamon spice flavor. We use premade apple pie filling to keep things simple and the end result is a soft and tender personal treat that satisfies any apple pie craving. And that little drizzle of sweet icing doesn’t hurt matters either. They’re quick, they’re cute, and they’re totally hard to resist.
