I’ve had this recipe for Apple Cider Glazed Apple Pie Rolls rolling around in my head for quite some time, but I wasn’t quite sure if the execution of my idea would work.
You see, I like apple pie enough. I don’t love apple pie, but I like it. If I’m being truly honest with myself what I like the most about apple pie is the cinnamon sugar mixture soaked into the pie crust with the flavors of apple juice mixed in. Melted ice cream obviously makes it even better.
Basically, I want apple pie with the least amount of apples in it. Strange, right?
So, what I decided to try was making a variation of apple pie with a bigger focus on “the good stuff”… the flavors of apple, the spices, the cream and the crust without a lot of cooked apples getting in the way.
I’m happy to say that the idea worked and worked really well. Imagine diced apples coated in a buttery cinnamon sugar mixture wrapped up in a swirl of thicker, pie like crust. Top it off with a sweet and creamy apple cider glaze and you’ve got an apple pie variation, featuring the best of “the good stuff”. Enjoy!
