It seems that the trifecta of fall flavors are squash, pumpkins, and apples. We have done squash a few times on here with Butternut Squash & Baked Potatoes with Bacon, Risotto with Butternut Squash, and even how Butternut Squash Polenta is an Indulgent Treat. Pumpkin? We shared 30 Awesome Fall Pumpkin Recipes to Try. Now let’s talk apples. With Apple Pepper Jelly Made in the Instant Pot, Beyond Easy Instant Pot Apple Butter, Rustic Apple Pie Recipe, and even Apple Fritter Pull-Apart Bread. Today? I want to tempt you with these Apple Pie Rolls.

This is a budget-friendly treat as it starts as a boxed cake mix, which is on sale often for under a buck. A little apple pie filling and only one apple make for a pretty easy to make a tasty treat for fall.

If you want to kick it up another fall flavor notch, skip the quick powdered sugar icing and use caramel ice cream topping. It squeezes over the warm apple pie rolls nicely and adds just the right amount of richness to the layers of taste. You are going to have to make this recipe twice, to see which way you and your family prefer them.

Apple Pie Rolls

You will need:

  • 1 box of vanilla cake mix
  • 6 tsp instant yeast
  • 5.5 cups of flour
  • 2 ½ cup of warm water
  • ½ cup of apple pie filling
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ cup of oats
  • ½ cup flour


  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp milk

Instructions for Apple Pie Rolls

Bloom yeast in warm water and vanilla. Let sit for 5 minutes. Mix dry ingredients with the yeast and water mixture. Knead the dough for 2 minutes. Let dough rest and double in size for 1 hour.

Roll out dough on a floured surface into a large rectangle, spread apple pie filling on the dough. Roll up the cinnamon buns lengthwise and cut into 2 inch segments.

Mix apples, butter, brown sugar, oats and flour with a fork to create a crumbly mixture and then sprinkle it over the rolls.
