Quick, Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Bisquick is an amazing thing.  If you've ever been to the website, then you'd know that there are hundreds of easy, quick recipes you can whip up that always taste incredible.  I'd heard that Bisquick can be used to make cinnamon rolls so I decided to create my own...with apples.  I have a slight obsession with cinnamon rolls...they just taste so delicious! And apples are my favorite fruit, so I wanted to combine the two into a fantastic breakfast/dessert.  My attempt was a success. first, I used too much sugar.  I had used 1.5 cups sugar in the sauce as opposed to the 1.25 listed below, and it was an okay amount for dessert, but way too sweet for breakfast.  So I scaled it down a little and it was perfect.  Still very sweet..but not too much.  This is so easy to make too!!  You don't have to worry about using yeast, and kneading, and waiting for the dough to rise like you do for typical cinnamon rolls.  These only take 15 to 20 minutes to prepare (minus the cooking time) tops.  Ohh Bisquick...where would the world be without you???

Yield: 6 rolls


For sauce:
  • 4 medium-large apples - peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • For Rolls:

  • 1/3 cup milk
  • For filling:
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. In large saucepan over medium heat, combine apples, water, 1 1/4 cups sugar and flour. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture boils. Boil for one minute, then reduce heat to low to keep warm.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together baking mix, 2 tablespoons sugar, melted butter and milk to form a soft dough. Remove to floured surface and knead 8 to 10 times. Roll out into a 9 inch square.
  4. Spread softened butter over dough. Combine sugars with cinnamon, and sprinkle mixture over dough. Roll dough into a log shape and cut into 6 - 1 1/2 inch slices. Pour hot apple mixture into an 8x8 inch baking dish. Place roll slices, cut side up, on top of apple mixture.
  5. Bake in preheated oven 20 to 25 minutes, until puffed and golden. Serve warm with sauce.
