Share Your Recipe: Pie Crust Cinnamon Rolls by Toni Anderson

30 September 2010 18 Comments

Fall is here! Goodbye swimsuits and beach trips, hello brisk weather, falling leaves and…baking! Toni Anderson shares on of her favorite fall recipes below.

Pie Crust Cinnamon Rolls

The holidays are right around the corner and I’m sure there will be many kitchens filled with sweet smelling pies. Making pies is one of my favorite holiday traditions, but here is a little secret- I don’t like pie! I make pies because my family loves them and my dad loves them.

What I do love is pie crust cinnamon rolls! These tasty treats are a favorite around my house and sometimes we even make them without making a pie!


Whenever you are making pies save all the extra dough from the crust. If the dough is hard to work with put it in the freezer for a few minutes to firm up.
Take the extra pie crust dough and roll it out into a large rectangle about 1/8 inch thick. Spread butter all over the dough. Sprinkle cinnamon and white sugar all over the dough. Roll up and slice into 1 inch rolls. Bake on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Serve.

I promise these will be gone in a few minutes!

    Put in an oven safe dish cover w/ pecans (you can also mix pecans throughout)
    Place in oven cook for a few minutes depending on how toasted you want the nuts.

    I make this recipe in various amounts so I don’t have a set measurement for everything it is based strictly on taste and how many people are coming over.
