Apple Butter Cinnamon Rolls

Apple Butter Cinnamon Rolls: The Charm of Home
This weekend I made cinnamon rolls that I thought I would share.  They were really quick and easy and oh so good!  

2 packages Pillsbury ready made Crescent Rolls
1/2 cup apple butter
4 tablespoons brown sugar, divided
2 teaspoons cinnamon, divided

1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons milk 
4 tablespoons butter, softened

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.   Unroll the crescent roll dough into one large rectangle.  Pinch together the perforations in the dough for the crescent rolls and use it as a single sheet of dough.  Spread 1/4 cup apple butter on each sheet of dough. Evenly sprinkle 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon over the apple butter of each dough.  Roll each dough up into a log and press into shape a little.  Using a serrated knife or dental floss and cut the dough into individual cinnamon rolls.  Place slices cut side down, into a greased 8-inch round cake pan.  Bake 20-25 minutes until golden brown.  While the cinnamon rolls are cooling make the icing.  To make icing combine all ingredients and spread over slightly cooled cinnamon rolls.    
Yield: 12-14 rolls

Bonjour chère amie,

Nul doute que cette douceur soit une crierie ! Accompagnée d'une bonne de thé !... alors là, je dis oui ! J'arrive !... Sourire !

Gros bisous ☼

Sounds like a lovely quick & easy recipe. But what is 'Apple Butter' ? is it something only known to the USA ? I live in English & France never heard of it, Can you make your own
or substitute with apple compote ?

Barbara if you don't have apple butter, one of the easiest ways to make it would be in the crock pot. Like here:

Or here is a stovetop recipe:

Thanks for asking!

Definitely a perfect autumn savory to have with a cup a tea when there is a nip in the air. I was unaware of doing a recipe like this with apple butter. I hope Barabara from across the pond can purchase or make some.
