  • 1 13.8 oz can refrigerated classic pizza crust (i.e. Pillsbury)
  • 5 Tbsp softened butter divided
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 20 oz can premium apple pie filling (*See Cook's note)
  • 1/2 tsp apple pie spice
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3-4 Tbsp heavy cream


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Use 1 Tbsp butter to coat the bottom and sides of a 12-inch cast iron skillet or similar. Set aside
  • On a non stick surface stretch the pizza dough into a 15 x 10-inch rectangle. Spread the dough with 4 Tbsp softened butter.
  • Mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over the butter.
  • Use a sharp knife to cut the apple wedges in the pie filling into smaller pieces. Stir in the apple pie spice. Spread over the crust.
  • Begin rolling from the widest edge ending seam side down. Use a sharp knife and cut into 12 equal pieces. Arrange in the buttered skillet.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden and puffy.
  • Mix together the powdered sugar and heavy cream. Add enough cream to make the glaze drizzling consistency.
  • Drizzle the glaze over the rolls and serve.


To make your own apple filling: In a heavy bottomed saucepan cook 4 cups of cubed apple, 1/3 cup of granulated sugar, 1/2 tsp apple pie spice and 1/4 tsp of salt. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until softened. Thicken with 1 Tbsp cornstarch dissolved in 1 Tbsp cold water, repeat as needed. Cool then proceed with the recipe as written.
