Is it breakfast? Is it dessert? I can't really say, but it's delicious.

This crust is amazing! Since the cinnamon rolls are cut so thin and pressed into the pie pan they create a caramel like toffee flavor with a chewy yet tender texture. And any cream pie or cheesecake filling would be fantastic with it.

I chose walnut cream pie because it simply isn't made enough in this world!

Step 1: Cinnamon Roll Pie Crust

Cinnamon roll pie crust adds a whole new dimension to cream pie. Here's how to do it:

Cinnamon Roll Dough
1 (1/4 oz) pkg active dry yeast
1/2 c. sugar
4-5 c. flour
1/2 t. salt
5 T. butter, melted
1 c. milk
3 eggs

In a large mixing bowl combine yeast, sugar, 3 cups flour and salt. Set aside.

In a microwave safe container melt butter and set aside. In another microwave safe container warm milk but do not boil. Add melted butter to heated milk.

Mix wet ingredients with dry ingredients and stir in eggs incorporating well. Add in remaining flour 1/4 cup at a time until mixture starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl.

Turn dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and knead 8-10 minutes adding more flour if necessary.

Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let rest 15 minutes.
Definitely not diabetic friendly, but O.M.G it looks so good. It's just not fair!!!! hahaha

We'll miss you when the diet police come! <br> <br>I'm going to need new pants...
Ha! Certainly not a recipe for someone on a diet! :)
I've always been a sucker for cinnamon rolls. I'm going to make this recipe using a maple walnut cheesecake filling.<br><br>Maple Walnut fudge is my other vice.
Please let me know how it turns out. You are in for a treat!
Oh my goodness! A cinnamon roll as the crust! That is brilliant, the crust is always my least favorite part of pie, I think it will be my most favorite now :D
As an adult I eat pie crust just because I feel like I have to but I don't like it much. As a kid I always just ate the filling! I love them both with this crust!!
