Heat oven to 400°F. Bake cinnamon rolls as directed on can. Spread 1 teaspoon of the icing onto each of 2 cinnamon rolls, and enjoy for breakfast. Use remaining 3 cinnamon rolls and icing to prepare bread pudding as directed below; refrigerate remaining icing until ready to use.
Spray 2 (8-oz) ramekins or custard cups with cooking spray.
In 8-inch nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add apples, 2 tablespoons of the sugar and the cinnamon; cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until apples are crisp-tender.
