These Delicious Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls Will Be Your New Favorite Treat

Getting through that inevitable midday slump can be pretty difficult.

I mean, by the time 3 pm hits, I think it's safe to say most people would rather crawl under their desks and take naps than continue to pretend they're diligently working away on their computers.

However, there are some things that can motivate you to make it through those last few agonizing hours at the office without dying from boredom.

Like, for example, knowing you have a tray full of apple pie cinnamon rolls waiting for you at home.

To make them, combine butter and milk in a saucepan and stir until the butter melts. Pour the cooled mixture into a large bowl, add in yeast and let it activate for 10 minutes. Next, stir in the sugar, salt and flour. Then, knead the dough, place it in a sprayed mixing bowl, cover with plastic wrap and leave it in a warm area to rise.

Once that's done, flatten the dough on a floured surface. Combine all filling ingredients in a bowl and sprinkle onto the dough. Then, roll the dough inward, slice it into 1.5-inch disks and place the disks on a circular baking dish.
