Cinnamon Roll Apple Pecan Pie

This pie started from an inspiration I found on Pinterest. Making the crust from a store bought tube of cinnamon rolls. What a brilliant
idea!! A small bag of apples from my dads tree, some pecans and there you have it!!!

I first laid the cinnamon rolls out on the counter and rolled them flat with a rolling pin making sure all the sides are connecting. Transfer to a lightly greased pie plate.
Be sure and press together any holes.

For the filling I peeled and sliced about 8 cups of apples. I mixed the following to the apples:

1 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

Apple Pie Spice Blend

1/4 cup ground cinnamon
1 tbsp ground allspice
2 tsp ground nutmeg*
2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cardamom (optional)

Combine all ingredients for desired mix and blend well. Store in a small, airtight container.
Feel free to experiment with amounts to get a blend that works for you.

*If using freshly ground nutmeg, you might want to cut back a little bit because the flavor can be quite strong. Since you’re going to be storing the
mix anyway, it is not crucial to use freshly ground here.
