Hi! It's Jen from My Daylights and I'm back to share another fun recipe just in time for St. Patrick's Day! I have a lot of Irish blood in me and I enjoy finding things to do for this fun little holiday. My kids love cinnamon, apples, and bread so I wanted to combine them into individualized pull-aparts. With ingredients like that, it's a win-win for Mom in the kitchen!
They don't need to rise so, when they're finished, pop them in the oven at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. The tops may come apart a little but they can be put together again once they have cooled down. If you didn't double up on the muffin liners, they may leak slightly. If that's the case, plop them into another liner and you'll be set.0 That's it! These were really easy to put together. And my kids gobbled them right up! They are great for breakfast or for an after school snack and you could make them any time of year. But having a little green food on St. Patrick's Day is always a fun bonus!

Apple Cinnamon Shamrock Pull ApartsServings: 12 | Skills: Beginning | Prep Time: 20 min (not including thaw time) | Bake Time: 12-15 min
Apple Cinnamon Shamrock Pull Aparts
9 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed (but not risen)
1/4 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
2 Tbsp cinnamon
1 can apple pie filling
Green sugar sprinkles
6 gold muffin liners
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut thawed dinner rolls into 4 pieces, each. Combine cinnamon and sugar in separate bowl.
Fill muffin pan with two liners in each cavity. Roll pieces of dough in melted butter and then in cinnamon-sugar mixture, coating the pieces. Place two pieces in the bottom of one liner.
Spoon 1 Tablespoon of apple pie filling (if there are larger pieces, cut them smaller) over top. Add three more coated pieces of dough on top of the pie filling, forming a shamrock shape. When all the cavities are filled, pour small amount of butter over tops and sprinkle green sugar sprinkles over the tops.
Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes, until browned and cooked through. Let cool. If needed, take them out of the muffin tin and add an additional liner if there is leaking. If tops of pull-aparts spread while baking, they can be put back together when cooled down.
