  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    Slice 8 medium to large apples to create a cup by removing one-fourth of the side of the apple. Cut a very small slice off the opposite side of each apple to create a base for the apple cups. Scoop out the flesh of the apples, making sure to leave at least a 1/8-inch border for sturdiness.
  • 3
    Separate 1 can (12.4 oz) Pillsbury™ cinnamon rolls with icing into 8 rolls. Set icing aside. Cut each cinnamon roll into 4 equal pieces. In medium bowl, mix 1/4 cup melted butter and 1/2 cup packed brown sugar. Toss each cinnamon roll piece in butter mixture.
  • 4
    Pour cinnamon sugar in medium to large food-storage plastic bag; toss a few of the buttered cinnamon roll pieces at a time in cinnamon sugar until all are evenly coated.
  • 5
    Stuff about 4 cinnamon roll pieces down into each apple. Place apples on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until rolls are firm and apples are tender. Cool slightly. Drizzle with icing, and serve.
