1 can (17.5 oz) Pillsbury refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing
6 cups thinly sliced apples of your choice
1/4 cup butter
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, cubed
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup milk
(see my tips below)

See my Darlene’s Concoctions videos!


1:  Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 13×9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with shortening or cooking spray.

2:  In 12-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add apples and cook 10 to 12 minutes, stirring frequently, until softened and beginning to brown. Remove from heat.

3:  In large microwavable bowl, microwave cream cheese and powdered sugar uncovered on High 1 minute, stirring every 30 seconds, until softened. Stir until smooth, then slowly stir in milk. Add to the apple mixture and stir.

4:  Separate dough into 5 rolls (save icing). Cut each cinnamon roll into 6 pieces (scissors work great) and stir into apple mixture. Pour into baking dish.

5:  Bake 26 to 32 minutes or until bubbling around edges and dough is baked through. Let stand 10 minutes.

6:  Drizzle icing over mixture and serve.

Darlene’s Tips: To keep this simple, do not peel the apples. For extra icing, add milk or water, just a few drops at a time, until you get the consistency you want. You could also add other ingredients to this bubble up bake like raisins, candy morsels, maybe try tossing in some apple jacks cereal, whatever you like!  Experiment!  Serve for breakfast, brunch or dessert!
