  1. Add the lemon juice to a medium microwaveable bowl and set aside.
  2. Slice the apples in half and cut out the cores (an apple corer is recommended). Using a sharp paring knife or mandolin, cut the apple halves lengthwise into 1/8-inch thick slices and add to the bowl.
  3. In a small bowl, mix the brown sugar and melted butter together. Then pour on top of the apple slices, stirring to coat.
  4. Microwave for about 2 minutes or until the apple slices are pliable. Remove from the microwave and drain any accumulated liquid. Then set aside.
  5. Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease a 12-cup muffin tin and set aside.
  6. Open the cinnamon roll package and unravel the dough into long strips.
  7. Place one cinnamon roll in each muffin cup to form a spiral.
  8. Slide apple slices in the gaps between the cinnamon roll with the peel side facing up to make a rose petal look. Repeat for all remaining muffin cups.
  9. Bake 15-20 minutes or until puffy and golden. Then remove from the oven and cool slightly.
  10. Dust with optional powdered sugar before serving.
