Cinnamon Roll Apple Turnovers

My favorite flavor profile during the fall season is apple cinnamon. I've never been a giant pumpkin spice fan, though I did recently find out that the coffee shop across from the bar I work at has a pumpkin spice latte that taste like a gingerbread cookie so I have been drinking a lot of them.

Anyways, apple cinnamon. I'm a fan. I love apple cider, I love apple pie, I love apple cinnamon muffins, I love how it smells, etc. You name it, I love it.

We're pretty deep into fall now, and my favorite fall activity is to make and bake all of the yummy treats for friends and family. I've been making muffins, cookies, cupcakes, new cocktails, etc.

I watch a lot of Tik Toks, and I saw this video (I forgot to save it so I can't link it here) where someone took biscuit dough and made apple turnovers in her air fryer. It looked super tasty, but I figured I could elevate it a little bit further. Swapped out the canned biscuits for cinnamon rolls and bam! Amazing fall treat.

These are perfect for those days where you just want to eat an apple pie, but don't want to put the time and effort into making an entire pie. Plus they're so much easier to share with your friends! I've made them a couple times for my coworkers, and they've been a huge hit.

Cinnamon Roll Apple Turnovers


1 can of pre-made cinnamon Rolls

1 apple


Apple pie spice


If you're using an oven to bake these, start by preheating your oven to 325. Flour the surface you'll be working on and open the can of cinnamon rolls. Use a rolling pin to roll out each cinnamon roll into a flat circle.

Core your apple and chop into eight slices. Place one apple slice onto each cinnamon roll circle and then sprinkle on apple pie spice and cinnamon. Fold the cinnamon roll over to create a crescent shape and then use a fork to press the edges together.

Place on a baking sheet and brush melted butter on top. Cook for 10-14 minutes until golden brown.

If you're using an air fryer, place three or four turnovers into your air fryer. Set to 350 for 4 minutes on each side.

Once cooled, top with icing (I personally just use the icing that comes with the canned cinnamon rolls) and whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Take a shot for how addicting these are and toast to how warm and fall they are
