Fall, the season of cozy comfort and breathtaking beauty, holds a special place in my heart. With its cooler temperatures that offer respite from the scorching summer heat, but without the biting cold of winter, it’s the perfect time to embrace all that this enchanting season has to offer. From the vibrant hues adorning the foliage to the longer nights spent snuggled up with a steaming cup of cocoa, fall is a sensory delight. However, what truly captivates me about this season are the delightful flavors it brings to our tables.
While the masses may gravitate towards the ubiquitous pumpkin spice, my palate yearns for the sublime combination of cinnamon and apple. There’s an irresistible charm in the luscious apples, with their tart yet subtly sweet flavor, perfectly complemented by the warm, earthy notes of cinnamon. This delightful pairing not only satisfies my taste buds but also evokes treasured memories of autumns past.
In my eternal quest for new cinnamon apple recipes, I stumbled upon a gem that exceeded all expectations. Brace yourself for an indulgent treat that combines layers of tart apples, velvety caramel, and decadent, buttery cinnamon rolls. Fear not the name “lasagna” in this dessert, for it bears no resemblance to its savory namesake. Instead, it offers layer upon layer of pure bliss, crowned with a luscious drizzle of sweet icing. The best part? This Apple Cinnamon Roll Lasagna is a breeze to make!
Requiring just seven simple ingredients, this recipe is not only a culinary triumph but also a practical choice for busy fall days. Gone are the lengthy shopping lists; this dessert embraces simplicity and ease, thanks to the use of refrigerated cinnamon rolls.
Let’s dive into the culinary adventure! Preheat your oven to a toasty 375 degrees Fahrenheit and generously coat a 9×13 baking dish with nonstick spray. Now, let’s prepare the star of our show—the apples. Opt for four plump and juicy apples, ideally Granny Smith or Golden Delicious, though feel free to experiment with your favorite apple variety. Peel and dice the apples, then toss them in a harmonious blend of sugar, corn starch, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Make sure each apple chunk is thoroughly coated in this delightful mixture, ensuring a symphony of flavors in every bite.
Next, take those delectable cinnamon rolls and slice them into elegant 1/4-inch thick rounds. To facilitate easy rolling, dust each slice with a sprinkle of flour before using a rolling pin to gently flatten them on a floured surface. Now, it’s time to assemble our masterpiece. Begin by arranging the first layer of these flattened cinnamon roll slices along the bottom and sides of the baking dish. Apply a gentle press with your hands to ensure a tight seal between the rolls.
With the foundation laid, it’s time to layer on the apple filling, which is the soul of this dessert. Spread half of the luscious apple mixture atop the first layer of cinnamon rolls, allowing the flavors to meld together in a tantalizing dance. To elevate the experience further, generously drizzle 2-3 tablespoons of luxurious caramel sauce over the apples, adding a divine touch of sweetness. Now, let’s add another layer of flattened cinnamon rolls, building this scrumptious tower of delight. Finally, crown our creation with the remaining apple mixture and, once again, lavish it with the silky richness of caramel sauce.
With our masterpiece assembled, it’s time to let the oven work its magic. Cover the dish with a protective layer of aluminum foil, allowing the flavors to mingle and intensify. Slide the dish into the preheated oven and bake for 30 minutes, allowing the aroma of fall to waft through your home. After this initial baking period, remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 10-15 minutes. This final stage will reward you with a golden-brown crown atop the layers of autumnal splendor.
Resist the temptation to dive in immediately, as this delightful creation will be piping hot. Allow it to cool for a spell, approximately 30 minutes, before embarking on the final stage. Remember those cunningly saved icing packets from the cinnamon rolls? Now is the time to indulge in their creamy goodness. Drizzle the icing over the cooled dessert, savoring the melding of flavors and textures. The wait is over, my dear friends—serve up this warm, comforting delicacy and prepare to fall in love with the epitome of a fall treat.

A playful and scrumptious fusion of traditional apple caramel pie and irresistible cinnamon rolls. This delectable fall treat, reminiscent of the charming Apple Crumb Cake, not only satisfies your sweet tooth but also makes for a delightful breakfast casserole option.
If you’re familiar with my penchant for layered desserts, you’ll understand why I’ve dubbed this creation a “lasagna.” Previously, I’ve delighted taste buds with Strawberry Jello Lasagna Baked, White Chocolate Lasagna, Caramel Pecan Lasagna, No-Bake Summer Berry Lasagna, Chocolate Lasagna, Christmas Lasagna, Key lime pie lasagna, and Pumpkin Lasagna. Each of these desserts showcased a hearty combination of cookie or shortbread crusts, luscious puddings and cheesecake fillings, and heavenly whipped toppings.
Now, let’s delve into the realm of Caramel Apple Cinnamon Roll Lasagna—a delightful twist on the beloved classic apple pie. This delectable treat boasts the visual allure of a layered apple pie, but with an intriguing twist.
Instead of the traditional pie crust, I opted for tantalizing cinnamon rolls. With a creative touch, I sliced each roll into thin layers, rather than flattening them slightly, and arranged them along the bottom of the baking dish. This forms the foundation of our scrumptious creation. Next, I combined fresh apple cubes with a harmonious blend of sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon, creating a mouthwatering apple pie filling. I generously drizzled luscious caramel sauce over the apple filling, adding a touch of indulgence to each layer. To complete the ensemble, I added another layer of delicate cinnamon rolls. However, since we’re working with layers, I repeated these steps once more, building a symphony of flavors and textures.
The result? A heavenly dessert that tantalizes the taste buds and showcases the irresistible allure of fall. Indulge in the delightful layers of cinnamon-infused pastry, nestled between bursts of fresh apple goodness and luxurious caramel. Each bite offers a harmonious medley of flavors, inviting you to savor the essence of autumn.
The Caramel Apple Cinnamon Roll Lasagna Roll is not only a decadent dessert but also a charming option for a hassle-free breakfast casserole. Prepare to be enchanted by the whimsy and deliciousness that awaits.
