Easy Cinnamon Rolls that are filled with apples and topped with crumb topping!




  • 6 to 7 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 (4-1/2 tsp.) envelopes Fleischmann’s® RapidRise® Yeast
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, room temperature
  • 2 eggs


  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 3 cups finely chopped and peeled Granny Smith apples

Crumb Topping

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature


  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 34 tablespoons heavy cream



  1. Combine 3 cups flour, sugar, undissolved yeast, and salt into the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment.
  2. In a medium microwave safe bowl, heat the milk and butter for 2 to 3 minutes until it’s very warm (120° to 130°F).
  3. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and mix for 2 minutes on medium speed, scraping the sides of the bowl as necessary. Add the eggs and 2 more cups of flour and mix for 2 more minutes at medium speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough, you might not need it all. Replace the paddle attachment with the dough hook and mix on medium speed for 5 to 8 minutes until smooth. Alternately you can knead the dough on a lightly floured surface using your hands for 5 to 8 minutes.
  4. Cover and let rest 10 minutes.
  5. Roll each half of the rested dough into a 12×10 rectangle on a lightly floured work surface.


  1. While the dough is resting prepare your filling. In a large bowl combine sugars, flour, and cinnamon and stir. Add in the melted butter and mix until combined.
  2. Divide the mixture in half and spread evenly onto each rolled out dough.
  3. Sprinkle the diced apples evenly on top of each. Roll up the dough tightly from the long side and then slice the dough into 1 1/2- inch portions.
  4. Coat 2, 9×13-inch baking dishes with nonstick spray and place the rolls into the pans. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes, or until doubled in size.

Crumb Topping

  1. In a medium bowl mix together the flour, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and butter.
  2. Using your hands combine the mixture until crumbs form when squeezed together.
  3. Sprinkle all the rolls evenly with the crumb topping.

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake the rolls for 30 minutes until lightly golden. Allow to cool slightly before icing.

  2. Drizzle the icing on the slightly cooled rolls.
  3. Serve warm or at room temperature
