Cinnamon Bun Apple Pie
1 pkg Pillsbury Pie Crusts
5 assorted apples of your choice
2 TBSP butter, melted
1/4 c sugar+1 tsp cinnamon for the top crust
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup sugar+ 1/2 TSP cinnamon for the apples
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 TBSP lemon juice
1 egg, beaten
2/3 cup confectioner’s sugar
2 TBSP milk
Take 1 of the pie crusts and place it in your pie pan
and make your edges all pretty.
Lightly flour your workspace and unroll the second pie crust. Lightly sprinkle a bit of flour on top and
gently roll out to a slightly larger circle.
Spread the melted butter on the crust from edge to edge.
Combine the sugar and cinnamon and sprinkle over the butter, pressing down a bit into the crust.
Tightly roll up the crust to form a log.
Cut off and discard about 1/2″ from each end.
Cut the remaining crust into 1/2 ” rounds and lay face up on a
sheet of parchment paper, keeping the shape of a circle.
Place another piece of parchment on top and
gently roll the crust out with a rolling pin.
Peel and dice your apples and place in a large bowl.
Add lemon juice and stir.
Sprinkle sugar, cinnamon and flour and
toss gently to coat the apples.
Pour into your crust in the pie pan.
Gently attempt to turn the cinnamon bun crust
over on top of the apples.
If they come apart, it’s ok…just arrange them all over the top. Brush top with beaten egg; I did not use all of it,
but enough to cover.
Bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour.
Mix the glaze and brush it on the top.
Cut and enjoy!
