Breakfast for dinner is always a fun way to mix things up, but what about having dessert for breakfast?

But with pastries like warm, sticky cinnamon rolls and apple turnovers stuffed with syrupy filling, it’s definitely possible to satisfy your sweet tooth before 10 a.m.

Make these beauties over the weekend and have a quick breakfast to go during the week. Whether you eat them at room temperature or heat them up with a little pat of butter, they’re sure to give you the right dose of sweetness.

Prep and bake these stuffed pastries the night before so you can dig into these at the office. They’re loaded up with an apple-and-dried-cherry mixture that’ll definitely be more satisfying than your usual granola bar.

One of the most-classic grab-and-go breakfasts gets a major facelift with Giada De Laurentiis’ Italian-inspired recipe.
