Individual Cinnamon Roll Pies Recipe!

My Dear Readers, 

Frankly, I have been obsessed with cinnamon lately. I have been putting it in everything, to include my hot chocolate. (If you have never had cinnamon in your hot chocolate, give it a try! Cinnamon adds a unique depth of flavor to chocolate.) My obsession with cinnamon has also lead me to create this sweet recipe for Cinnamon Roll Pies. All the flavor of a cinnamon roll, in a crispy pie crust! 

Individual Cinnamon Roll Pies 

What You Need:

2 Rolls of Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Crust (Or if you are feeling spunky, you can make your own crust.)
1/3 Cup Granulated Sugar
1/3 Cup Dark Brown Sugar
2 Tbs All Purpose Flour
2 Tbs Cinnamon
1/2 Cup Melted Butter
2 Tbs Whole Milk
Cookie Cutters

What To Do: 

Preheat Oven to 400 degrees and Line a baking sheet with Parchment Paper.
Unroll refrigerated pie crust, and cut out shapes. 2 shapes per pie. (I recommend using a shape that isn't very intricate. I chose to use an acorn shape for mine.) (You will need to roll out scraps of each crust to continue to cut shapes, until all of the crust is used.)
Mix together both sugars, flour, and cinnamon. 
Once dry ingredients are thoroughly mixed, slowly mix  them into the melted butter.  
Put a small amount of filling in one half of each pie. 
Brush a small amount of the milk around the edges of one half, and then press the halves together. (The milk will act as a glue.) 
Once the halves are pressed together, use either a fork, or lollipop stick to crimp the edges.(I used a lollipop stick to get a larger crimp.) (You may need to put a little flour on the stick or fork, to make sure it does not stick to the dough.) 
Brush the tops of each pie with milk, and then place in the oven. 
Bake 15-20 mins, until golden brown. 

These are a little time consuming, but they turn out beautifully, and taste amazing! These would make great gifts as well!
