  1. 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.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a muffin tin with paper liners.
  3. Mix white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Place melted butter in a small bowl.
  4. 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.
  5. Combine apples and raisins in a bowl. Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon apple-raisin mixture over each muffin.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 25 minutes.
  7. 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.
