Enjoying the flavor of warm apple pie under the starry night sky is easy when you begin with frozen cinnamon rolls.

Prep Time: 20 min (not including thaw time)
Bake Time: 25-30 min
Skills: Beginning


  1. 12 Rhodes Cinnamon Rolls or AnyTime!® Cinnamon Rolls, thawed but still cold
    1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled and diced
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
    3 tablespoons, chopped pecans

    Caramel Icing
    2 packets cream cheese frosting (included with rolls)
    1/3 cup caramel ice cream topping


Cut each roll into 4 pieces and arrange in the bottom of a 12-inch Dutch oven (lined with aluminum foil, if desired) sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Cover with lid and let rise 1-2 hours (if using Anytime rolls you do not need to let them rise).

In a bowl combine apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, cracker crumbs and pecans. Remove lid and sprinkle evenly over cut rolls.

Cover with lid and bake at 350°F 25-30 minutes.

For icing combine cream cheese frosting with caramel topping. Drizzle over pie while still warm.

I have made this twice now and it is the clear favorite of all the Dutch Oven recipes that I have served. Easy to make and taste great with ice cream. I modified it from 18 biscuits to 12 for a 12" 6 quart oven.

If you're going camping, let the frozen rolls thaw in the cooler while you travel and make the caramel apple pie that night!
