full ingredient list
Mix up the dough & let it rise until doubled.
Stir together the filling until smooth - apple butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, & apple pie spice.
Roll out the dough until you have a large rectangle.
Spread the apple butter filling over the top of the dough, leaving a small gap on the edges.
Tightly roll up the dough, sealing the edges.
Cut the dough into 10-12 rolls and place in a buttered baking pan. Let rise until the rolls are puffy.
Bake the rolls until they're just baked & golden brown.
Meanwhile, brown the butter. Add the powdered sugar, vanilla, & milk until you have a thick glaze.
Frost the baked apple butter cinnamon rolls with the brown butter glaze.
Serve the rolls warm or save them to enjoy later!
You will need about 3 hours to make this recipe. Don't worry, most of it is just rising time!
It's easy! Just brush the rolls with a little cream before baking so they come out super fluffy and gooey.
3 TIPS FOR THE BEST
1. Freeze the rolls before you cut them.
2. Slice the rolls using unflavored floss.
3. Underbake the cinnamon rolls just a little.
