When I was thinking of an idea for a fall baking recipe, I spied the Caramel Apple Butter and the Apple Butter Syrup and I knew instantly I wanted to make cinnamon rolls with them.

Cinnamon or sweet roll dough is such an easy thing to make and a great starting off point for all the variations you can think of. I have made traditional cinnamon rolls before, as well as pumpkin, pineapple and coconut ones, even raspberry filled ones. I love apple flavors more than pumpkin in the fall so I knew as soon as I saw the apple butter and syrup these had to be apple cinnamon rolls.

I added in nutmeg and cinnamon to the dough, which gave a nice subtle scent. I love how warming fall baking spices are, and adding them in to doughs and breads really ups the flavor and makes your house smell amazing when baking. I then substituted the traditional butter in the filling with the caramel apple butter, and added in thinly-sliced apple pieces. The best part really is the icing on the cake…er, rolls.

I went with a traditional cream cheese icing, but I added in cinnamon and nutmeg and a little apple cider. Fall and apple cider go hand in hand, right? I wait until the rolls are cooled completely before icing them because I like a nice portion of icing on top of the roll. If you prefer more of a glaze, spread the icing on the rolls when they are still hot out of the oven. Drizzle more of the apple butter syrup on top and enjoy with coffee.

Oh, and that apple butter syrup? Heaven. I am making apple pancakes this weekend just to have an excuse to use more of the syrup. I will probably go buy another jar of five of the caramel apple butter…and I will try not to eat it with just a spoon.
