Cinnamon Roll Pie

Cinnamon Roll PIE?! This is so amazing! If you like the gooey goodness of cinnamon rolls, you are going to LOVE this pie which is made from two layers of cinnamon rolls with a sweet nutty brown sugar filling in between. Tasty and simple and easy to prepare with Grands! prepared rolls. Great for families and holidays!

Back in October, I shared tips for cooking with kids. One of those tips was to buy foods that make it easier for the kids to cook, like Pillsbury™ Grands! Cinnamon Rolls.

They make it easy for kids to make a complete breakfast – all they have to do is pop open the roll, place the cinnamon rolls in a baking dish, bake, and then ice. They're simple and easy enough for kids to make with just a little oven help.

With that in mind, I created the following recipe for a fabulous dessert using Pillsbury™ Grands! Cinnamon Rolls as a starting point.

This recipe is easy, friend. It's so easy that my kids can do it. Allie made this almost all by herself, with Joe reading the recipe and helping her to measure and then putting the completed pie in and out of the oven.

As you can see, Joe was not all that happy to be beginning a blog-related baking project at 8:30pm, but duty called and he is naught but a dutiful spouse.

The girls, of course, were thrilled to begin baking at bedtime.

That's how we roll some days.

So the recipe, as you can see at the top, is Cinnamon Roll Pie.

It uses cinnamon rolls for the crust – a perfect detour around making a pie crust from scratch, which I have never, ever done in my entire life and may be able to avoid for the rest of my entire life.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Grease pie pan by brushing with melted butter.
  3. Slice each cinnamon roll in half horizontally so that you have complete but thinner rolls. Line pie pan with half of the sliced cinnamon rolls, pressing them down slightly. The crust of the pie should cover the bottom and sides of the pan.
  4. Combine brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and butter into a paste in a medium mixing bowl. Spread 2/3 of filling over the crust. Sprinkle with 1 cup of pecans.
  5. Cover filling with remaining cinnamon rolls (you may have a couple left over, depending on the size of your pie pan - tomorrow's breakfast!).
  6. Spread remaining filling over rolls and top with remaining pecans.
  7. Bake 30 minutes. If top crust gets too brown, cover it with aluminum foil or a pie shield.
  8. While the pie bakes, place the icing cups on top of the oven to warm. Once the pie is done, pour icing generously over the top of the pie and wait at least 30 minutes for the icing to set and pie to cool slightly before serving.

The pre-made cinnamon rolls cut the prep time down to almost nothing, taking about 20 minutes from start to sliding in the oven.

In fact, Allie spilled the brown sugar after it had been solidly packed into the measuring cup, and they had to start over with the packing.

And it still only took 20 minutes.

Using Pillsbury™ Grands! Cinnamon Rolls also gives you two packets of glaze to top your pie, which sends a delicious pie simply over the top of the deliciousness scale.

The finished pie is better than you can even imagine.

We topped ours with ice cream, but it didn't need ice cream at all.

I ended up eating the ice cream and then eating the pie separately. The pie is just so good all by itself!
