Apple Butter Ribs

Apple Butter Ribs - Delicous recipe made with a slow cooker

Cook Time 2 hrs
Temp High

These finger lickin' cinnamon rolls are just the thing to make your day sweet! The pumpkin adds fall flavor to this irresistible slow cooker recipe on a chilly morning.

Ingredients

  • 1 Stick of butter or margarine, melted
  • 1/4 Cup white or dark Karo (whichever doesn't matter)
  • 1 Cup Brown sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Ginger
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 1 Cup Chopped pecans or nut of your choice
  • 1/2 (8 oz) Block cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 Can Pumpkin puree
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 Packages Crescent rolls
  • cinnamon sugar

Directions

  1. Step One

    For the glaze, mix the first 5 ingredients together in small bowl, Stir in the nuts.

  2. Step Two

    Spray bottom of slow cooker with non stick spray. Pour the glaze in the bottom of the slow cooker.

  3. Step Three

    In a medium bowl, using a hand mixer, blend the cream cheese, pumpkin puree, and vanilla.

  4. Step Four

    On a nonstick surface, (I use a plastic cutting board) roll out crescent rolls into four rectangles per package.
    You should have a total of 8 rectangles.

  5. Step Five

    Sprinkle each rectangle of crescents with cinnamon sugar.

  6. Step Six

    Dollop the pumpkin mixture onto the crescent rectangles and spread evenly. Roll crescents from end to
    end.

  7. Step Seven

    Cut the crescent rolls into halves or thirds and start placing them in the slow cooker on top of the glaze.

  8. Step Eight

    When all cinnamon rolls are placed, cover and cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours or until crescents are no longer
    doughy.

  9. Step Nine

    Once done, remove crock from heat and let cool for 5-10 minutes. You may then flip onto a platter and all
    glaze should top the rolls.

    Love all the pumpkin recipes, can’t wait to try some of them. I do have a questions about the videos. Is there anyway at all to save them. I really enjoy the ones of the recipes I would love to make?
    Thanks

    This came out AMAZING for my family! I used the 6qt NONSTICK GE slow cooker, and I sprayed it pretty well after reading some of the reviews. I had no problems with sticking, at all! I still think this slow cooker is the best to use for “baking.” I can’t imagine anyone not like this…holy moly!!!!

    The can size is 14-15 oz. You will use half of that.

  5. Christie M.

    For the pumpkin bread, the recipe says 1/2 can of pumpkin. What size can?

  6. Trina

    I used a 6 qt. Hamilton Beach crock pot, but it has a heavy ceramic insert, not a nonstick one that you are describing. I do have to add that this is the only recipe of yours that has EVER not worked for me, though. I have been cooking at least one (usually more) new Crock Pot recipe each week (usually from your site) and they have ALL been amazing!! In fact, we had oatmeal this morning from your recipe and loved it, as always. Thanks for sharing your talented cooking skills with us! :)

    Sorry, y’all! I hate that this recipe has been a flop for y’all. I really think the difference is in the slow cooker. We used our 6qt GE nonstick slow cooker for this recipe. It cooks evenly and not too hot…perfect for desserts.

  8. Suzi S.

    It sounded soooo good, but I experienced the same problems . . . . after 2 hours of cooking in a 6 quart crock pot, the topping was burned and the rolls were undercooked.

  9. Kelly W.

    I loved the idea of this recipe but it did not work. I used a 6 qt crockpot and followed all comments. By the time the dough was cooked, the glaze burned. When they cooled the glaze turned to cement. I will go back to my traditional pumpkin roll.

    Sorry that your cinnamon rolls did not turn out. We use a 6 qt non-stick GE. It does desserts really well. Which model do you have? Some cook too hot and fast and it takes some time to get to know how they cook.

    I made these as a special Halloween breakfast this morning, but sadly, they didn’t turn out great. I cooked them on high for almost 2 hours, but when the topping (on the bottom) started getting too brown, I turned them to low for a while because the rolls were still very gooey! I alternated between low and high for a while and finally, after about 2.5 hours, had to take them out becuase the topping was burning. They had a good flavor, but were still VERY gooey. Maybe it takes a different crock pot than the one I have for these??

    You will want to use 1/2 can of pumpkin and 1/2 block of cream cheese. We made the necessary changes for the recipe. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. A lot of times I will do a full can and a whole block so I can make both the cinnamon rolls and pumpkin bread.

  13. Sabrina

    Question, in your video you said this called for 1/2 can of pumpkin but the written part called for 1 can of pumpkin. Can you please let us know the correct amount of pumpkin? I want to try this but don’t want to mess it up…lol Thanks!

    Angie, I’m sorry it was a flop :( It sounds like your crock cooks hotter than ours. We us our nonstick GE for desserts so it won’t burn or stick. Since the filling was too bland for you, feel free to add more spices…if you decide to try this again. Sorry, girl!

  15. Angie H.

    I wanted to like these. I love pumpkin. But the filling was really bland and the glaze burnt to a crisp in less than a hour on low in my crock pot :(

    Marcy, don’t lay them seam-side down, but standing up so you can see the “swirl.” Just like you would lay refrigerated rolls in a pan. Hope this has helped!

  17. Marcy R.

    Sounds absolutely delicious! I have a question – when you lay the slices of crescent roll in the cooker, are they on their side where you see the filling or upright? Thanks!
