Stop trying to decide what’s for dessert and combine two crowd-pleasing favorites: make a Cinnamon Roll-Apple Pie. The joy of Cinnamon Roll-Apple Pie is simple: premade cinnamon rolls become the crust for a delicious mix of granny smiths and pudding mix—yum!

What You Need

2 cans (17.5 oz. each) refrigerated cinnamon rolls with icing, divided
3 Granny Smith apples, thinly sliced
1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
1 tsp. ground cinnamon

Let’s Make It
1 – Heat oven to 350°F.
2 – Separate Cinnamon Rolls. Place 6 rolls in single layer on bottom of 9-inch pie plate sprayed with cooking spray; press to flatten and completely cover bottom and side of pie plate. Reserve remaining cinnamon rolls and Icing for later use. Bake crust 10 min.; cool slightly.
3 – Toss apples with dry pudding mix and cinnamon; spoon into cinnamon roll crust.
4 – Press remaining cinnamon rolls into 5-inch rounds. Place around outer rim of pie plate, leaving opening in center to allow steam to escape. Press edges of rolls together to cover filling and to seal to edge of bottom crust as shown in photo.
5 – Bake 40 to 45 min. or until apples are tender and crust is golden brown. Cool slightly.
6 – Drizzle with reserved icing as desired before serving.

Kitchen Tips
Tip 1 – Special Extra: Sprinkle lightly with additional ground cinnamon before serving.
My Tip – Extra Special Extra: Serve with a scoop of cinnamon vanilla ice cream.

  1. Sounds yummy and pretty darn simple. Yay!

    I made apple cake on Sunday. The house smelled awesome. Now I’m getting the urge to make apple-cranberry bread. I just need to buy some cranberries. I guess my baking obsession came back with the cooler temps. I need to either find a way to burn more calories or find someone to give all this baked stuff to on a regular basis. Maybe once the young couple finish their house, I can heap baked treats upon them. =o)
