Apples and cinnamon are two of my favorite things about fall baking, and this Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie Bake combines them both in a delicious, warm, spicy treat.
And this recipe is so easy, thanks to refrigerated cinnamon roll dough! I do make the apple filling from scratch, but if you were really pressed for time, you could use a few cans of apple pie filling and have this pie baked up in no time.
Of course, you could go all out and make everything from scratch, including the cinnamon rolls.
I decided to take a short cut with the cinnamon rolls, since making them from scratch are pretty time consuming. Either way, tasty recipe will fill your home with a wonderful scent as it bakes.
If you’ll be serving this dish for dessert, I highly recommend topping it off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, or a dollop of whipped cream. What the heck–you could even indulge in a little ice cream or whipped cream for breakfast!
I like the tartness of Granny Smith apples in this recipe, especially with the sweet cinnamon roll topping, but any firm, crisp baking apple will work just fine.
My family gave this Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie Bake two thumbs up. This is also a great recipe for getting kids helping in the kitchen. They’ll love cutting up the cinnamon rolls and adding them to the pie.

Tips for Choosing and Storing Apples
What type of apple should I choose? Granny Smith, Cortland and Rome Beauty apples are great for baking and pies. For applesauce, try Braeburn, Jonathon or McIntosh. Gala apples are great from drying. For more help choosing the perfect apple for your recipes, check out this handy chart.
Appearance: Look for apples that are free of blemishes and bruises and feel firm when you grip them. Dull skin may indicate that an apple is past its prime.
Storing: Put your apples in the refrigerator right away. Store them away from any strong smelling foods so they don’t absorb unpleasant odors. Properly refrigerated apples will keep from 4−6 weeks.
