Cinnamon Apple Pie Bites
This might be the culinary mashup of the century! We're taking your grandma's apple pie and giving it a twist that's so crazy, it just might work. Enter the scene: King's Hawaiian Rolls – those sweet, fluffy little buns of glory. Now, imagine them stuffed to the brim with apple pie filling. That's right, we're not just combining flavors here; we're creating a flavor explosion! It's like if a cinnamon bun and an apple pie had a delicious baby. We’re talking about a symphony of sweet, cinnamony goodness, with apples so perfectly cooked they practically whisper sweet nothings to your taste buds. And let's not forget the pièce de résistance – that golden, buttery crust. It's like wrapping a cozy, sweet blanket around each bun. Grandma would be proud… or confused. Either way, she'd want seconds!
- 1 package of King’s Hawaiian Original Sweet rolls
- 1/2 cup apple pie filling
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 egg whites
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- Using an apple corer, make little holes inside the middle of each roll of a package of King’s Hawaiian Original Sweet Rolls. Press the piece down to make an indent.
- In a bowl, combine melted butter, cinnamon and sugar and paint that over each roll. Fill each indent with a little bit of apple pie filling.
- Bake at 375°F for 5 minutes.
- In the meantime, whisk up two egg whites until they’re frothy. Add a little bit of vanilla extract and powdered sugar and continue mixing until a royal icing is formed, you can put it in a squeeze bottle for easy application.
- Once the rolls are done baking, drizzle the top with the icing and enjoy!
