Canned cinnamon roll dough: Using canned cinnamon roll dough is one of the ways this recipe is so easy. There’s no need to make cinnamon roll dough from scratch.

Apple pie filling: This is another quick convenience ingredient and you can use any apple pie filling you like. I used the Lucky brand. You can also cut the apples a little if they’re large.

Butter, cinnamon and brown sugar: The combination of these ingredients add sweetness, spice and they come together to make a sort of caramel-like sauce for the breakfast bake.

Tips & FAQs:

What kind of cinnamon rolls should I use?

You can use any brand of cinnamon roll dough, but I used Pillsbury. You could also use the regular-sized cinnamon rolls or the Grands cinnamon roll dough.

Tip for the cinnamon roll dough:

One thing to note, it’s best to use brand-name cinnamon roll dough, like Pillsbury.

What type of apple pie filling should I use?

Tips for using the pie filling:

Make sure to pick through the apple pie filling to make sure there aren’t any seeds or pieces of core in it as some brands tend to have bits of those.
You may also need to cut the apples a bit if there are large pieces.
