Cinnamon Roll Pie Crust

It's been ages and ages and ages since I've last posted, but seeing as its break and I have some free time why not share what I've been up to? My dear friend Becky reminded me of my blog just a few days ago, so this post is dedicated to her and her awesomeness. I am so thankful to have her back from her studies abroad in Peru!

I can not claim to have come up with the idea of a Cinnamon Roll Pie Crust at all, I originally stumbled across the idea via Pinterest. I didn't pay too much attention so I had my mom pick me up some canned cinnamon rolls from the grocery store. If you get anything out of this post let it be this: Don't buy cinnamon rolls. You only need pie crust. Yeah, so today when I finally looked at the recipe's video on Taste for Adventure I found out I just needed a pie crust, cinnamon and butter. Luckily my mom had some in the fridge so I just followed their recipe, the only alteration I made was adding cinnamon sugar on top of the cinnamon.

Here are my mini cinnamon rolls! I had some leftovers so I decided to bake them as treats for my family.

Back to the pie crust though, I just gently pressed down on the cinnamon roll dough until I had a somewhat flat layer and then I went about making my apple pie as if it was just a regular crust.

I forgot to take a picture before putting the pie in the oven, but here it is when it just came out from being baked! My family always does a crumb topping, to me it isn't an apple pie without the crumb topping.

So with tomorrow being Christmas Eve, I know with thirteen family members gathered together the pie will probably be completely devoured as soon as we cut it open. I hope you are all having a lovely winter break and are enjoying time with your family and friends. :) Merry Christmas!
