Ingredients

  • Cinnamon Rolls– Soft and fluffy cinnamon rolls make the crust for these tasty mini pies. Look for the regular size and not the jumbo. I used a can of Pillsbury Cinnamon Cinnamon Rolls but any brand will work for this recipe.
  • Cherry Pie Filling– You will only need one can and will have a little extra left over depending on how generously you top the cinnamon rolls. I used all the cherries and half the glaze.

How To Make Cherry Pie Cups

  1. Prepare the Pie Crust: Place each of the cinnamon roll dough in a greased regular-sized muffin pan and make a cup by pressing down the center and up the sides of the pan.
  2. Add the Filling: Add a little cherry pie filling to the center of each of the cinnamon rolls. I used 3-4 cherries and just a little filling.
  3. Bake: At 375 degrees, bake the pie cups for about 13-15 minutes and the outside edges of the cinnamon roll crust start to turn golden brown.
  4. Top with Icing: Once the pie cups have cooled slightly, drizzle the icing over the tops of each pie cup. Enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions

Why did my filling overflow?

Make sure to press the cinnamon rolls in the center and up the sides. Also, you can reduce the amount of filling in each cup.

Can I use homemade pie filling?

Yes, a homemade cherry pie filling would taste delicious in this recipe.

Helpful Tips

* Allow the pie cups to cool for a few minutes before drizzling the icing over the top so it doesn’t melt down the sides too quickly.

* Use mostly cherries and a little filling to prevent overflow.

* This tastes fantastic warmed up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
