~Cinnamon Roll Crust~Apple Pies!

Oh-M-Gee..Cinnamon Rolls can be used as pie crusts, cupcake liners, and mini pie shells?!  Life as I know it is forever changed..lol!  I know that my life will never be the same since I discovered this treasure of deliciousness!  My brain is now over-flowing with endless ideas and I see way too many some yummy treats in my future.  :)

Not only is this idea so cute, but the cinnamon roll gets so warm and tender with the apple pie filling bubbling away inside of it!  And as a bonus, the amazing frosting is generously provided by Pillsbury! Give these a try the next time you need a unique and totally scrumptious dessert!  After everyone’s Oooh’s & Ahh’s..you will hear nothing but silence as people fall into a deep cinnamon roll-apple pie trance..Make many, like many..many!  :)



What you’ll need:

Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls..one per each pie

Apple Pie Filling (I had some leftover)

1 Cup Graham Cracker Crumbs..for the topping

2 tbsp. Melted Butter..for the topping

A muffin tin




Roll out each cinnamon roll until it fits in your tin like a cupcake liner






Fill it them up to the top with the pie filling







Bake at 350 for about  6 minutes & then it’s time to top them with the Graham Cracker Crumble, prepare it while they’re baking


Graham Cracker Crumble: 

1 Cup Graham cracker crumbs

2 tbsp. melted butter

Mix it up

yep..that’s it!  :)


After they’re topped with the Crumble, continue baking them for another 6 minutes

Top them with the Cinnamon Roll frosting, and have yourself a nice warm, scrumptious  bite!






These truly are incredible!  ~Enjoy! :)


  1. We just love Pillsbury’s Cinammon Rolls. I really never considered using them for anything other than quick breakfast treats. My whole family loves them. I will definitely try this when I need a quick dessert – Yum, yum, yum!!!

    • Really…I CAN spell. CiNNaMon. I can’t believe how often I do this ;-p

  2. I bet it would be yummier to substitute the cinnamon topped graham crackers and crumble them up instead! yeah!!!!!!!! OH I’m so gonna make these!!! Thanks!
