How to make a Cinnamon Roll Pie Crust
Do you love pie but hate the pie crust? This dessert will solve all of your problems!
With one can of cinnamon rolls, you get the entire crust done without any extra work. Make sure not to forget to set aside the frosting to drizzle on top at the end of the recipe.
We recommend getting the large cinnamon rolls for this recipe, so rolling out the pie crust is a little easier.
You’ll want to bake your pie crust for 10 minutes before adding your filling, to ensure the crust cooks all the way through.

Tips for How to make cinnamon Roll Pie:
This apple pie with cinnamon roll crust has been around our family for a long time! We’ve learned a few secrets to guarantee a perfect Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie each and every time. Here are a few suggestions!
- Grab the big roll of cinnamon rolls. Using the larger rolls makes spreading them into the pan a lot easier and allows for a thicker crust.
- Make sure to use all the cinnamon rolls called for in the recipe to avoid the crust being too thin.
- Keeping the cinnamon rolls cold before you spread them out will keep them from getting too sticky.
- Don’t worry about getting the cinnamon rolls perfect on the bottom of your pan, remember that they will puff up when baked!
- If you decide to use fresh apples, cooking them slightly beforehand will help them soften up in the pie. We’d recommend heating them over the stove for a few minutes.
- Pecans are totally optional! We love this pie with and without them.
- We love to drizzle ours with caramel sauce before serving, it gives it a delicious caramel apple flavor.
