Cinnamon Roll Dutch Apple Pie How-To
How can you make apple pie extraordinary? The secret is in the cinnamon roll crust!
My daughter loves to cook and is constantly watching cooking shows on TV and online. She likes to watch a show online about making common dishes extraordinary, so I wanted to surprise her with a super twist on a traditional dessert. She loves apple pie and Pillsbury® Cinnamon Rolls, so I thought to make the pie using Pillsbury® Cinnamon Rolls as the crust!
What started out as an experiment turned into one of the most amazing apple pies I have ever made. I served it one Sunday when my whole family was over for our traditional pasta dinner. Needless to say, dessert was a huge hit. Even my mom, who makes the most amazing apple pies, said this was winner!
I used cinnamon rolls as the crust, gave the pie a crumb (streusel) topping and then drizzled the glaze that came with the rolls over the top of the pie after it cooled.
You only need a few ingredients to make the pie.
