I have been wanting to try out this recipe from purewow.com for Cinnamon Roll Crust. So yesterday was the day, and it's hot out, so the butter is melting really fast. I am in a hurry to roll this crust out before it turns to melted butter. Well the pie tastes great, I really like the crust, it's my old recipe for crust, Pruewow.com used ready made crust. I didn't. It sure looks pretty on the bottom of the pie, but it's hard to hold the pie up in the air to keep looking at it. Worth it? You be the judge.
1 package pie crust ,I made home made
4 tablespoons butter, melted
½ cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pie crust to even it out to about 1/4 inch thickness.
In a small bowl, mix the butter with the sugar, cinnamon and vanilla extract to combine. Spoon the mixture into the center of the crust. Use a knife to spread it evenly over the entire crust.
Starting with the side closest to you, roll the crust into a tight roll. Cut the finished spiral into ½-inch-thick pieces.
On a lightly floured surface, use a rolling pin to roll each piece into a round. Place the pieces in a pie plate, overlapping them slightly and pressing to seal.
Place the roll pieces of dough in the pie plate until the entire plate is full. Use a fork to press indentations all around the edge. Chill the crust well before filling and baking, and bake according to your preferred pie recipe.
