Preheat

We’re shooting for around 375° here. Also, put a cookie rack or an inverted rectangular cake pan in the grill to create some more space between the heat at where you’re muffin tins will be.

Also prep your muffin tins with baking spray.

Roll ’em

Roll out your individual cinnamon rolls until they are about 5″ across and will cover a muffin tin to form a cup. Repeat, and place each one in the muffin cups.

Fill ’em

Make the apple mixture and spoon into the cups. Then make the crisp mixture and spoon over the apples.

Bake

“Bake” your muffin cups in the Traeger for 15-20 minutes.

Drizzle Drizzle

Remove when done and let cool for 10 minutes before drizzling the topping over each of the muffin cups.
