Ingredients

Cinnamon Roll Crust

  • 1 tablespoon melted butter
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • Freshly whipped cream for serving

Instructions

  • Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line a 9-in pie plate with one pie crust. Trim and crimp edges. Place on a baking sheet and set aside.
  • Next, prepare the cinnamon roll crust topping. Take your second 14-inch pie dough and brush it with the melted butter. In a small bowl, mix together the cinnamon and sugar. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture over the pastry. Pat it in lightly with your fingers.
  • Roll-up the pasty into a cylinder. Press the seam to seal. Cover and chill until needed.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the sugar, cornstarch, spices, and salt. Beat in the squash puree, butter, eggs, milk, and vanilla until smooth. Pour into the crust.
  • Cover the edges of the crust loosely with foil or a pie crust guard. Bake for 25 minutes.
  • While the pie bakes, cut the chilled cinnamon roll pie crust cylinder into 1/4-inch slices. Remove the pie from the oven and take off the foil. Carefully arrange the cinnamon roll slices** on top of the filling. They should be close together but not touching. Return the pie to the oven and continue baking for another 30-35 minutes or until the filling is puffed and set and the cinnamon roll circles are lightly browned.
  • Cool on a wire rack for one hour. Then transfer to the refrigerator to finish cooling.
  • Slice and serve with freshly whipped cream.

Notes

*You're welcome to use my recipe (find that HERE), your favorite pie dough recipe, or store-bought. You will need dough for a bottom and "top" crust.
**Any leftover slices can be baked on an ungreased cookie sheet until lightly browned.
