This Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie is a combination of two beloved desserts, or breakfasts if you wake up with a sweet tooth!
Featuring a premade crust, simple homemade apple pie filling and packaged cinnamon rolls, its almost effortless to make, but is guaranteed to wow a crowd this holiday season!
My family loves loves adding the icing from the cinnamon rolls on top, but feel free to leave it off if its too sweet for your taste buds.

- 1/2 cup Heinen’s brown sugar
- 2 Tbsp. Heinen’s unsalted butter
- 2 Tbsp. water
- 1 tsp. Heinen’s ground cinnamon

- Roll out the pie crust and place it in a greased 9-inch pie plate. Crimp the edges of the crust and place in the refrigerator. A thawed pie crust in a tin can also be used.
- Combine the apples, brown sugar, butter, water and cinnamon in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook for 6-8 minutes, until softened.
- Combine the cornstarch in a small bowl with a little water. Stir well and pour into the saucepan with the apples. Stir until thickened.

- Let cool and top with the cinnamon roll icing, if desired.
