Apple Pecan Cinnamon rolls 苹果山核桃肉桂面包

The other day saw an Instagram friend shared her Apple Pecan Cinnamon rolls, it immediately attracted me. Love the flavours, apple and pecan nuts, they are really nice combo!

Hi Sonia, my whole family loves anything with cinnamon especially such rolls....but I always can't roll nices ones. Most of the time the filling will ooze out on the tray during baking and the rolls are so huge after baked although I cut them equally. Any tips that you can offer me? Thanks and appreciate it!
