Molly and I had picked so many apples when we went apple picking last weekend that we wanted to make something different with the apples we had left. We decided to make an apple pie but with a spin. Instead of making a pie crust, we decided to use cinnamon rolls as the pie crust. I can honestly say this is the ONLY way we will make apple pie from now on. How have I never thought of trying this until now??? If you are looking for an easy but impressive dessert for the holidays, this is a no brainer.


  • 5 apples peeled
  • 2 cans cinnamon rolls
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

Preheat oven to 350°F and spray a pie dish with nonstick oil.

Peel and cut the apples and place in a bowl.

Top apples with cinnamon, sugar and cornstarch to and stir.

Roll each cinnamon roll out and arrange in the bottom of the pie dish.

Add the apple mixture and use the remaining cinnamon rolls to create a top crust.

Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes.

Remove the foil and bake for another 10 minutes uncovered.

Allow the pie to cool and drizzle with icing.
