Apple Cinnamon Roll Muffins

My husband was in need of more treats for a work potluck and I wasn't in the mood for anything extravagant.  I had the cinnamon rolls on hand but I thought they needed to be spruced up a bit.  I immediately thought of apples and decided apple pie filling on top would be delicious!   These were delicious and you could easily skip the step of cutting them up and just top the regular rolls.  However, I needed more than 16 and they look pretty!
  • 2 package refrigerated cinnamon rolls, 8 per pack
  • 1 granny smith apple, Diced
  • 6 tablespoon butter
  • 6 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Directions:  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Open cinnamon rolls and place frosting aside.  Cut each roll into 4 pieces and roll into small balls.  Place three pieces into a lightly greased muffing tin.  In a small sauce pan melt 2 tablespoons butter and add diced apples.  Saute for about 3 minutes, or until soft.  Remove from heat and sprinkle with cinnamon and 2 tablespoons brown sugar.  Stir apples until sugar is completely dissolved and top each muffin with mixture.  In the same sauce pan melt remaining butter and stir in remaining sugar until dissolved.  Top each muffin with a little more sauce and bake for 20 minutes.  Let cool for around 5 minutes and drizzle with frosting while still a little warm.
