I’ve always been a fan of the orange flavored rolls. I think that’s some old southern tradition. But, my sister got sick one time on them so it was always a treat when we were at the store and I got to pick the flavor. When I was in my “fat girl stage”, I love the cream cheese icing ones. Not that cream cheese icing makes you a fat girl, but I loved all things sweet and the more the merrier (and could probably take out a can of rolls by myself). Now, that icing just seems too much and the Cinnabon ones just don’t taste the same as the ones at the mall (or in the airport when I’m running and that’s usually when the craving hits!)
On a recent trip to my local Neighborhood Market, I snagged a roll of the Pillsbury Giant cinnamon rolls with caramel icing (you know for the morning I got a hankering for cinnamon rolls while I was making soup in the crockpot). I have recently discovered that I do like the giant size, hard decision made. Helps with portion control and me not being a single gal with 12 cinnamon rolls sitting here starring at me!
To make it even better, I had some Pampered Chef apple pie sprinkles in my cabinet and after I sprayed the Pam on the pan I dusted the bottom with those little gems and sprinkled the top of the rolls with a few more before I put them in the oven. The caramel and apple were the perfect combination and I loved the extra crunch.
Not sure Sandra Lee would approve of that “semi-homemade”, but instant gratification was the greater accomplishment!
Yes, there are 4 left if you want to come get one!
(oh and I’m not sure what kind of oven they use in their test kitchen but its always about 5 minutes too many!)
