Pie #61- Cinnamon Roll Apple March 17, 2013

I’ m WAAAAY behind on my blogging, but not my pie making.  SO, here’s #61- Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie.

Henry is the one who came up with the idea for this pie.  He asked if I could make a cinnamon apple pie and when this recipe popped up on my google search, well, it didn’t take him long for him to agree to help make it.

I thought it was fun that the crust is made completely out of cinnamon rolls, so for all of you who are scared to make a pie crust from scratch, this one is for you! You still will need a rolling pin, but it is very easy to make.

Personal Notes:

  • I did find that the crust was a bit soggy at the bottom of the pie plate in spots where the round, flattened rolls overlapped each other.
  • This pie was really yummy and I will definitely make it again when I don’t feel like rolling out a pie crust.

    Henry! That looks sooooo good! Good choice, I love apple pie. The higher the pile the better, right?!

  2. Fun to see Pie Project love being shared with Henry. He’s an opinionated eater, especially when it comes to pie. Lots to love about him, this pie and the Queen Baker herself.
