Ingredients Needed:

  • Refrigerated cinnamon rolls
  • Apples
  • Sugar
  • Water
  • Cornstarch
  • Vanilla
  • Ground cinnamon

Cinnamon Roll Dough: I used standard Pillsbury refrigerated cinnamon rolls. Actually, two different types. The majority of rolls used were the one piece rolls. I did however, use a few rolls that unrolled. Both will work for this pie. I recommend sticking with the regular size rolls, not the “grands” version. You will need two packages, but, you probably won’t use all the rolls.

Apples: Chopped & peeled. A few varieties that work well in apple pie- – granny smith, jazz, pink lady golden delicious & jonagold. You are looking for an apple that is firm and tart. You can also use a combination of different types of apples.

How to Make + A Few Notes:

  • First, remove the rolls from the package. With a rolling pin, roll each roll out flat.
  • Then, layer the bottom and sides of the pie plate with the flattened rolls.
  • Make your filling and pour it into that cinnamon roll pie crust. When making your filling, keep a close eye on it. It should only take about 5-8 minutes for it to thicken, but, will burn quickly!
  • Next, add another layer of those flattened cinnamon rolls on top of the apples. Be sure to seal up any open holes with your fingertips.
  • Cover and bake. Remove the cover and bake a bit more.
  • Once done, let it cool for about 15 minutes. Then, drizzle the top with the icing from the packages.
  • Cool for about 15 more minutes before serving. Your filling will seem a little messy when the pie is still warm. But, it will thicken up as it cools.
