MMMMMMMMM.... Pieeeeeee :)
I can just here you saying "Kendall, you don't know what you are talking about, those are cinnamon rolls! There is no pie in that picture!" Oh, friends, I assure you, I wouldn't play with your hearts that way. I know exactly what I am talking about.
You see, these foods were practically made to be together. Even PB&J bows in their presence. The warm, gooey texture of a cinnamon roll kissing the sweet spiced filling of the pie, it's magical.
I'm not a good sharer. My parents did their best to teach me, but I just never caught on. Today, I'll do my best to share with you. Not my pie, of course, but I will give you the recipe to make your own!
Cinnamon Roll-Topped Apple Pie
For the rolls:
- One recipe of cinnamon rolls of choice, uncooked, and cut thin. (I used this recipe, but you can use any that you want!)
- I filled them with an applesauce, stevia, and cinnamon mixture.
For the pie:
- 800g of granny smith apples
- Maple syrup, 1/3 cup
- Cinnamon, 2tbsp
- Stevia, to taste
- Vanilla, 1/2tbsp
- Salt, a pinch
- 9 inch pie pan
- Pre-heat your oven to 350F.
- Chop apples into very thin slices and place into a pie dish.
- Top the apples with the maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, stevia, and salt, and mix thoroughly.
- Cover the pie with foil, and bake for 20 minutes
- Take the pie out and top with cinnamon rolls, covering the entire pie like a crust normally would.
- Bake for 35-45 minutes, uncovered, until the cinnamon rolls start to brown.
- Be filled with cinnamon goodness, and come back and let me know if you liked it! :)
I hope that this recipe will help you through hump day! :)
