More About This Recipe
Sometimes, you want a cinnamon roll.
Sometimes, you want an apple pie.
And then there are times you want both. This pie is for those times. (And for pretty much any time you want pie.)
This Cinnamon Roll Dutch Apple Pie is like a cinnamon roll flavor explosion with apple pie filling in between. A cinnamon roll crust on the bottom, a sugary streusel and cinnamon swirl icing on top and delicious baked apple filling in the middle – good gracious! Does anything sound more delicious right now? Didn't think so.

You’ll need about a gazillion apples (or more realistically, about 8 cups peeled, cored and thinly sliced) along with a WHOLE STICK of butter, brown sugar, flour and some more sugar for sprinkling on top. Go big or go home, right?
Fill the pie with a mountain of apples. That’s right. Just apples. You could toss the apples with more cinnamon and sugar if you want, but with the super-sweet topping and cinnamon roll crust, it gets a little too sweet.
After filling the crust with apples and topping with the streusel, you might think to yourself at this point that this pie is ridiculously tall and you’ve lost your marbles, but fear not – once baked, the pie will deflate to normal pie size.
Now stop staring and dig in already, will you? Happy cinnamon roll/apple pie eating!
