Apple & Cinnamon Scrolls | Freezer Friendly

These Apple & Cinnamon Scrolls take 10 minutes to prepare, require no proving time at all… and taste amazing!

Apple & Cinnamon Scrolls

My latest cooking obsession is definitely scrolls. And sweet scrolls in particular. I have no idea why, but all of a sudden I am LOVING them… and trying every possible flavour combination. To be honest, it’s really not a bad obsession to have.

Apple & Cinnamon Scrolls

Anyway, like pretty much everyone in the world, I am a big, big fan of cinnamon scrolls. I mean, come on – cinnamon, brown sugar, drizzled icing… drool! But I honestly think that I like these Apple & Cinnamon Scrolls even better. Seriously.

Apple & Cinnamon ScrollsThe thing that I love the most about these scrolls is that they take only a few minutes to prepare and you don’t need to leave the dough to rise. Nope, you just whip the dough up, roll it out, add your yummy fillings and bake them straight away. And no waiting around is always, always a good thing.

Ohhhh and when these babies come out of the oven, it’s time to make them even better. Yep, it’s possible! Simply make a drizzly icing from icing sugar and boiling water and then spoon (I really mean ‘pour’) it over the top of the scrolls. OMG you cannot beat these delicious little things.

These Apple & Cinnamon Scrolls make a great lunchbox treat. BUT whatever you do, make sure you keep at least one (ahem or three) for yourself. Eat them warm or cold… either way they’re absolutely delicious. Oh and you can totally freeze them as well. Simply pop them into an airtight container and freeze them for up to 3 months. I’m telling you, having scrolls in the freezer is pretty darn fabulous when you get a mega mid-afternoon craving.

And so there you have it… the first (of many!) sweet scroll recipes. I can tell you, there is going to be a whole lot more scroll-y goodness happening around here in the next little while. Mmmm carbs – get in my bellllllyyyyyyy!
