Cinnamon Roll Pie


2 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour 
4 tbsps. granulated sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 1/2 tsps. active dry yeast
1/2 cup warm water
1/4 cup warm milk 
3 tbsps. unsalted butter melted
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 egg
4 tbsps. melted butter
1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 tbsps. ground cinnamon
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp. melted butter
2 tbsps. milk
1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
Step 1: Make the dough in your mixer using the dough hook attachment, but combing the ingredients on a low speed starting with your dry ingredients then slowly adding in your wet ingredients. Once the dough comes together it should pull away from the sides, then roll out dough onto a piece of parchment paper to a rectangle about 14 x 18 inches. Make the filling and spread it across the rectangle using a spatula, finally cut into about 1 1/2 inch strips and spray a pie pan with canola oil.
Step 2: Start with one strip rolling together and continuing to add until you have used all of your strips.  Then place a clean kitchen towel over and set in a warm place to rise for 3-4 hours. 
Step 3: Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown edges throughout. Make your icing and drizzle over the top, enjoy!


  1. does the inside of it bake all the way through? I've made delicious looking cinnamon rolls before, only to have the inside still raw. I'm curious if this happens with this recipe.

    1. It bakes all the way through, hope you enjoy! You can always stick a toothpick in the center when you think it is done, when it comes out clean you know it is ready :)

  2. do you mix the yeast with the warm water prior to adding it or do you add all wet ingredients at the same time? also, can these be made and refrigerated and baked the next morning? if i have to let them raise for 3-4 hrs, i'll be making them in the middle of the night! thanks.

    1. For this recipe you do not need to mix the yeast with warm water prior to incorporating. You can add in all the wet ingredients at once. I would recommend mixing the dry ingredients prior to adding the wet ingredients. You can easily refridgerate and bake in the morning

    2. thank you...that makes my schedule look MUCH better for Tuesday! :)

  5. Looks yummy, Wish I had a piece now.

  6. I made individual cinnamon rolls and also as one big cinnamon roll. Absolutely amazing! One of my all time favorite and better than any restaurant. WELL DONE
