Instructions Checklist
  • Put frozen rolls on a baking sheet, spray a piece of plastic wrap with cooking spray and place over rolls. Let rise until doubled in size, about 3 hours.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners.

  • Mix white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Place melted butter in a small bowl.

  • Grab approximately 1 tablespoon of thawed and risen dough and roll into a ball. Dip the ball in the melted butter and roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Repeat to fill each muffin liner with 3 buttered and sugared dough balls.

  • Combine apples and raisins in a bowl. Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon apple-raisin mixture over each muffin.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes.

  • Beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, whipping cream, and vanilla extract together in a bowl until glaze is smooth, 3 to 5 minutes. Drizzle glaze over muffins.

Cook's Notes:

When you are making the dough balls, stick any extra onto some of the muffins to make them larger.

If the glaze is too thick, add a bit more cream.

The kids and my husband loved these. However a lot of the apples fell off the top onto the pan. I suggest putting them in after two of the dough balls then topping with the third dough ball. Also I had about twice as much cinnamon sugar mixture as I needed. Read More
