Cinnamon Roll Apple Cobbler is a delicious fall dessert recipe. Apples covered in sweet caramel maple sauce are topped with cinnamon rolls and cooked to perfection in a slow cooker.
Making cobbler in the slow cooker allows the maple and cinnamon flavors to really soak into the apples. This dessert is amazing on its own or can be served with vanilla ice cream.

Tips for Making Apple Cobbler with Cinnamon Rolls
- The Pillsbury Grands have 5 rolls. If you use a larger crock pot, you can use one and a half packages.
- If you cannot find the Pillsbury Cinnabon Rolls, you can use the regular cinnamon rolls and make your own icing to drizzle on top.
- You can try using real Cinnabons, but the icing will probably melt completely off of the rolls into the the bottom of the slow cooker.
