The flavors of Apples and cream cheese combine to make this delectable recipe perfect for dessert or breakfast.
Fall = Apples in my life. I love anything and everything that I can get my hands onto with apples in it during this time of year. The cool, crisp nights and leaves falling truly bring out my love of apples. Anyone else feel like this?
When I was growing up we have three apples trees in my yard and they were not little apple trees. They produced a ton of apples so we would snack on apples all fall. In fact it produced so many apples my mom would beg the neighbors to come and get some! She had a love/hate relationship with those trees. Loved the apples but I think one apple tree would be sufficient in her mind! I also love waking my family up to a treat for breakfast on the weekends and this recipe combined that love and my love of apples so I was in heaven of course!
I have to level with you. I'm all for simple recipes. Making dough? Mmmm ya not my thing 99.9% of the time. This recipe uses Rhodes amazing dinner rolls as the dough so it was so simple! Those Rhodes dinner rolls were then smothered in a cream cheese bath and then topped with apples and cinnamon plus a glaze. Drooling yet? If not, well you should be.
