Biscoff and Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Breakfast is probably the best meal of the day.  Other meals are made better when you have breakfast again: brinner anyone?  Sidebar: this is discounting all the beers that are like chewing bread.  Arguably you can make a bread out of them and then have that for breakfast.  See?  The Bartender knows.
Tattooed Martha - Hard Apple Cider and Cinnamon Bread (11)
Apple Cider Breakfast Bread.  Are you not entertained?

The best breakfast is going to be birthday breakfast.  Where you get Cinnabons.  Because I have have yet to figure out any other justification for purchasing them.  Wait... 2 for 1 coupon.  Not without coups baby.  After combing though a bunch of of apple recipes I found one for apple Cinnabons.  Best ever!  Plus, I can get away with eating them on a regular weekend.

Warning: this is not a scratch and sniff picture
You're probably thinking the only way these could get better is if there was more cinnamon.  And you know, you'll always get what you ordered at this bar.  And I'll give you top shelf: melted Biscoff spread drizzled on the inside and, if you're really adventurous, over the top.  Double shot!

Ingredients - Inspired by Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls by Gimme Some Oven
1 cup milk
1/4 cup butter
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 packet yeast
1 egg

1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon
1-2 diced apples (I used Granny Smith)
1/2 cup melted Biscoff spread

Melt butter and milk in the microwave.  Usually it's easiest to pre-chop the butter and then just nuke for 20 seconds.

Mix 3 cups flour, yeast, sugar, & salt.  Add egg and butter/milk.  Beat until combined.  Add rest of flour and mix until combined.

 Beat until dough starts separating from the sides of the bowl and forms a ball.  Cover with a damp towel and let rise for 10 minutes.

Whisk together sugars and cinnamon for the filling.  Heat up the Biscoff spread.

Roll out the dough into a rectangle.  Pour & spread the Biscoff over the dough.

Sprinkle the apple chunks over the dough.

Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar over everything else.

Roll up the dough length-wise.  These form smaller, more pinwheel sized rolls.  If you want to get adventurous, you can roll up the dough width-wise.  Fun fact: you can use unflavored dental floss to cut rolls of dough.  Slide it under the roll, cross across the top, and pull all the way through the roll.  & you don't end up crushing the roll!

Arrange the rolls in a greased pie plate, cover, and let rise for about 25 minutes in a warm place.

 Preheat the oven to 350.  Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden.  Let set for 5 minutes

If you're really adventurous, drizzle some melted Biscoff over the finished rolls.  Enjoy with other breakfast essentials: eggs & smoked sausage!

& yes, seconds are encouraged.  You have to start the day off right, am I right?  You don't want any left behind!  *stuffs face with cinnamon rolls*
Round 2!
