Assembly of this pie is very easy. Let’s be honest, with all the baking we do during the holidays, we need easy! It starts with the super delicious Cinnamon Roll Crust. I saw this done on Facebook sometimes during the year and always thought it would be so festive in a holiday pie. I changed mine up a little, turning the larger cinnamon rolls into smaller ones for bite size chunks as the crust, but the concept is the same.
- Pie Crust
- 1 can Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls
- 1 egg (for eggwash)
- 1 stick butter, softened
- ¾ cup light brown sugar
- 1½ Tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips
- Store bought Whipped Cream
- Pillsbury Holiday Pre-Cut Sugar Cookies
- Heat the oven to the instruction on the Pillsbury Sugar Cookies package. Bake and set aside and then set the oven to 350. On a cutting board, spread out some flour. Open the can of Pillsbury Cinnamon rolls and pull them apart. Take one roll and flour the top. Using a rolling pin, roll them into a thin layer. Roll them up into a rube and slice. Spray your pie pan and, in the sprayed pan, press the small swirls into the pan. Continue until the pie pan is covered and up the sides. Take a piece of parchment paper and press it into the crust. Fill with beans and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the beans and paper and bake another 10 minutes. This helps keep the crust from rising too much!
- While the crust cools, work on the filling.
- In a mixer, blend brown sugar and butter until creamy. Stir in milk, vanilla extract and salt. Gradually beat in flour. Mix in chocolate chips. Once that is done, gently press the dough into the cooled pie crust. Top with whipped cream, then make whipped cream clouds and top with the Pillsbury Holiday Sugar Cookies!
Then I broke the cardinal rule of bakers everywhere. I encouraged eating raw cookie dough. In my defense, that rule is there because of the possibility of raw eggs being consumed. But this recipe does not have eggs in it so you can get that creamy taste of cookie dough without any worry!
After that layer is in, I topped the whole thing with whipped cream. To turn it into the ultimate Holiday Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Pie with a Cinnamon Roll Crust, I had to add some flair! So the quick bake Pillsbury Snowman sugar cookies I bought at Walmart rounds out this delectable pie!
This pie has the ultimate combination of a gooey, cinnamony crust with a rich, delicious cookie dough filling and a cool, creamy whipped cream. Combined together, and with great ease, you get that one pie that everyone raves about for the year to come!
Talk about an unusual use of things you already have in your fridge! We always have Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls and Pillsbury Cookie Dough! I love the designs that they put on their pre-cut sugar cookies for every occasion! These Snowman cookies are going to be a hit for my girls and for Santa!
I would love to hear what you would put in your Cinnamon Roll Pie Crust! How would you change up this recipe for the holidays for your family?
