Apple Cinnamon Rolls with Maple Icing

I don’t blog recipes often, but when I do they are deliciously calorific!

This time of year is all about the comfort food; rainy cold days should end with homemade soups, chunky casseroles and cinnamon based treats.

These are a twist on one of my favourite treats ever, the humble cinnamon roll.


I cheat whenever possible when it comes to baking, which is why I use ready made puff pastry, so not only are these yummy, but they’re quick too, bonus!
