Easy Cinnamon Apple Rolls Recipe

This recipe is simplified by starting with frozen bread dough. Chopped apple contributes to the texture and taste. I like to surprise my family with these rolls on weekend mornings.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + rising Bake: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 loaf (1 pound) frozen white bread dough, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat margarine, softened
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 small tart apple, peeled and chopped
  • 3/4 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  • 1. Roll dough into a 12-in. x 9-in. rectangle. Brush with margarine; sprinkle with cinnamon. Sprinkle the apple, raisins and pecans evenly over dough.
