Cinnamon rolls as the crust, coffee cake as the “pie”… what could be better?
Look out, world. Two of my all time favorite breakfast treats just got combined into one delicious pie. Introducing… Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake Pie!
And it couldn’t be easier!
Delicious Pillsbury cinnamon rolls serve as the simple “crust” for this pie. And then one of my favorite coffee cake recipes that I learned in college is the yummy “filling”, letting even more cinnamon and sugary sweetness abound. And for the “icing on top”, you literally just melt the icing from the cinnamon rolls and drizzle it around.
Easy? Yes. Popular with a crowd? BIG yes. My friends all loved it! I’m pretty sure yours will too.
Here’s the how to:
Start with a can of yummy Pillsbury cinnamon rolls. Press them into the bottom of a greased pie plate to make the crust.
I know…resist the urge to bake them up right then!
Then whip up a simple coffee cake batter using an electric mixer.
Spread the coffee cake on top of the cinnamon roll crust.
Then sprinkle the cinnamon-sugary crumble on top, and pop it in the oven for a half hour or so until cooked through.
Once it is out, heat some of the icing (that came with the cinnamon rolls) until warm, then drizzle it on top. And then…pretty please… DIVE IN!
