Rose Cinnamon Buns



Hi everyone . . .
This morning we put our granddaughters
on a plane heading home
& received a call that they are now 
home safe.
We had a wonderful visit
and our little home seems so quiet
and a little bit empty.

 ~~~🍎🍎🍎~~~

I don't post photos of them on my blog,
but I wanted to show you 
a yummy thing that we made together
during their visit.


I apologize for the not so great photos.
I was having too much fun to 
worry about taking good pictures. 

This is what you get when you cross 
a cinnamon roll with an apple pie.

~~~🍎~~~
Cut in thin pieces.


What you want is half slices
that are cored.





Drop them in lemon juice and water.


Arrange on a plate and microwave
for about two minutes.
Until partially cooked and floppy. 


We cut a pack of puffed pastry 
into 4 long pieces.

Then added egg wash, sugar and cinnamon. 

Next we placed the slices so that they 
were half way over the edge and over lapping
by a half a slice.


Next we folded the bottom half up the meet the top half of the pastry
and applied egg wash 
and sugar and cinnamon again.

Then rolled them up.


This is what they look like before
putting them into the cup cake pan.

We used the large Texas cup sized pan
and got four large buns from one
puff pastry.
I am going to try this again with
a biscuit recipe.
A pie crust would be great, too.

We baked ours at 400 degrees
for around 20 minutes.


Delicious!




Wouldn't they be wonderful to serve
with a scoop of ice cream on the side.

We didn't, 
because we were in too much of a hurry
to test our wares, LOL. 

~~~🍎🍎🍎~~~
Autumn and apple season is just around
the corner . . . it would be 
a great time to try these:) 
~~~🍎~~~
I've been away from the blogging scene
for the last two weeks,
but will be visiting your blogs 
and getting caught up soon.

Keep Smiling.
~~~🍎~~~
Your blogging sister,
Connie :)

    1. I was sorry to hear about Wild Bill and all the time spent in the hospital, hopefully he is on the mend and your days will get back to normal. Hospitals are no fun. I think you'll enjoy making these buns, they are easy and taste wonderful.

  2. How pretty and delicious-looking your apple buns look!
    I'm looking forward to apple season and all the good things I plan on making.
    I can imagine how quiet your home seems now that the granddaughters have gone to their home.
    Have a pleasant week.

    1. We enjoyed their visit so much and yesterday afternoon and evening seemed a little bit sad and lonely. I was missing the giggles and laughter around the house. They were missing their mama and making plans about starting school and seeing their friends again. Summer vacation is coming to an end, but the last two weeks with them are going to fill our hearts with great memories forever.

    1. We had a great two week visit with them. Saturday the smoke from the forest and bush fires blasted our town and the air is terrible and not expected to clear up until Thursday, so were staying inside except for setting sprinklers and picking vegetables. I'm just very happy that the weather was nice while they were here.

  12. These are beautiful! What a wonderful, into-fall, treat! My mother used to make her cinnamon rolls with biscuit dough and lots of homemade butter. We thought the sticky, sweetness was great!

    1. I love cinnamon rolls made with biscuit dough. I just used puff pastry on these because that is how I saw them made on You Tube. I really think that I might like them even better with biscuit dough.

    1. Hi Lisa, I would try the apples with the dough that you have already perfected. The apples will just add to the flavor and they are so pretty. I saw them on You Tube and just had to try them with our granddaughters:) I'm going to make them again using biscuit dough.

  16. Oh my goodness those look wonderful! I don’t blame you for not taking more pictures. I think you did great, but the important thing is to spend the time with your girls. I’m glad they are safely home now, but I know how you feel about missing them. I’m the same with my grandchildren who all live far away.
    Blessings, Betsy

    1. I know, I always had this dream in my head that we would live in the same town, but that is just not how it happened. When they graduate college they move where they get the best job offers. I envy some women that have their children and grandchildren all living within 20 or so miles from each other.

  18. Those are beautiful buns and look delicious. Eat one for me as I can't have gluten. How fun to have not one but three of your grandchildren with you. Are they sisters or cousins? Glad you got to spend time with them. Nancy

    1. Only two granddaughters, not three. The photo with the hair was them and me in the middle :) I wish that I could post their photos. I got some great shots at the fair and we have one of the four of us, Grandpa, Grandma, Abbey and Lucy all dressed up for the rodeo. I'm getting a few of them printed up to frame :) We had a wonderful visit.

  27. These cinnamon buns are delightful, Connie. I think the powdered sugar on top makes it. And you know I'm smiling cause they're in the shape of a rose. : )
