All opinions are mine alone. #YourSeasonIsServed #CollectiveBiasSweet rolls or cinnamon rolls are some of my favorite things to make during the holidays. I love using flavors that are seasonal and evoke memories. This Apple Pie Sweet Roll Log is full of cinnamon and apple flavors for a fun dessert or breakfast!
So technically, this and several of my other sweet rolls have started off as a breakfast item. Considering this Apple Pie Sweet Roll Log is pretty much pie, dough, and glaze, it does fit into the dessert category as well. But I say argue away for breakfast!
I remember going to our local Marie Callender’s when I was little with my grandparents. The restaurant is no longer there, but I love that I can use these Marie Callender’s pies at home. They take me back to being in the restaurant! All of these ingredients including Marie Callender’s Dessert Pies and Reddi-wip® products can easily be found at your local Kroger and Kroger banner stores (like King Soopers!). Find a store near you here!
And this Apple Pie Sweet Roll Log is perfect when topped off with some Reddi-Wip! It tastes great and is made from real cream. Most people I know love to pile it on!

One thing that I absolutely love about this recipe and my other sweet/cinnamon rolls is that they can be made the day before. Fast breakfast or dessert! To get started, you first make the dough, let it rest, and then roll it out.
While the dough is resting, I bake the pie itself and let it cool. Then I spread the cream cheese and vanilla mixture on the dough, followed by some extra cinnamon. The pie filling goes on top and I love to add some pie crust chunks as well! I also love to add some chopped pecans, but sadly I have too many people that do not like nuts around. I am outnumbered and it is horrible.
Roll it all up on top of a thin, flexible cutting board or parchment paper. Something thin and flexible to help you roll and move the dough. It then is transferred to a baking sheet and sent off to the oven! This is where you can let it sit overnight.
You can make these into individual rolls instead if you wish, however I found that this log tends to be rather wet and difficult to cut into rounds due to the large apples and sauce. You can follow instructions for how to cut the log into rolls in our Blackberry Toasted Coconut Sweet Roll post.
