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.
  • 2. Roll up jelly roll style, starting at a long side. Cut into 12 slices, 1 in. each. Place rolls, cut side down, in a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  • 3. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.
