Apple CinnaCheesecake Cups

It’s almost Springtime, so lots of things are about to get a bit hectic, especially if you have kids at home. Sports games, practices, spring break, school gearing up to end – sooo many things going on.

We all, as parents, love to give our kids (and their friends if they are a regular fixture in your house) good homemade meals, and of course, homemade treats.

Baking from scratch may not always be feasible if you have a lot on your plate, but there’s definitely a good middle of the road solution. I’ve teamed up with Pillsbury™ and Walmart to show you how to make a fun, easy, and very delicious treat idea for their Cinnamon Rolls with Cream Cheese Icing!

I’ve turned the already delicious Pillsbury™ Grands Cinnamon Rolls into an entirely new dessert. Just four ingredients, a few steps, and they’re ready to eat. Imagine cinnamon apple cheesecake nestled in a cinnamon roll crust…topped with crushed walnuts.

When my kids were both in sports, we spent a lot of time at the ballpark, and many times I had a houseful of kids after practices, games and recitals.

Active kids are always hungry; these would disappear quickly…

  • Make cheesecake according to package directions, omitting the crust. Stir in 1 cup apple pie filling and refrigerate.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Butter a muffin pan (that holds 12) with nonstick spray or butter.
  • Remove cinnamon rolls from can and half each.
  • Using your hands, form each cinnamon roll into a flat circle and place each one into muffin pan, bake for 15 minutes, let cool for 5 minutes and press each one down in the center to form a well.
  • Fill each cup with cheesecake mixture, drizzle with cream cheese frosting and walnuts.
