Apple Pie with Cinnamon Roll Crust



If you saw this tweet: 


Then you knew this was coming. 


The title is intriguing...and so is the crust. I found the original idea for the crust here. She did a sweet potato pie, but hey, who doesn't love a good fruit pie? This is really just a classic apple pie with a fun crust. Super easy, and slightly fun. I used two Pillsbury refrigerated pie crusts, but you could totally one up me and make your own. Just make enough for a top and bottom crust! 




Apple Pie with Cinnamon Roll Crust


Pin It


Ingredients


1 package refrigerated pie crusts
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 tablespoon cinnamon
5 cups thinly sliced peeled apples
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Handful of dried cranberries (optional)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out one pie crust on a lightly floured surface. Brush with butter and sprinkle evenly with cinnamon. 


Roll up tightly and slice into 1/2-inch rounds, like miniature cinnamon rolls.


Press miniature cinnamon rolls, flat side down, evenly into the bottom and sides of a 9-inch pie plate, making sure there are no spaces between the rolls. Set aside.




In large bowl, mix sugar, 1/4 cup flour, the cinnamon, nutmeg and cranberries. Stir in apples until well mixed. Spoon into pie plate. 


Roll other round of pastry into 10-inch round. Fold into fourths and cut slits so steam can escape. Unfold top pastry over filling; trim overhanging edge 1 inch from rim of plate. Fold and roll top edge under lower edge, pressing on rim to seal; flute as desired. Brush with milk, and sprinkle with sugar, if desired. Cover edge with 2- to 3-inch strip of foil to prevent excessive browning. Bake 40 minutes, then remove foil and bake for an additional 20 minutes. 




Let cool 20-30 minutes before slicing. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Oh. My. Goodness. You did NOT just do this to me?!?!? Yep, you did. Haha! Looks soooooo good!

We received our Fitbook in the mail over the weekend. Thank you so much!! If I make this pie, am I supposed to circle the happy face or the sad face for that day's food log?!? 'Cause I'm pretty sure I'd be HAPPY!
