The Shady Porch: Cinnamon Bun Pie...oh so good!


Cinnamon Bun Pie...oh so good!

The delicious bouquet of warm sugar & cinnamon is really popular in potpourri, candles, and a seemingly endless variety of products. A single whiff of Cinnamon Bun Pie - just as it comes out of the oven - is all the evidence needed to prove it's worth making just for the wonderful aroma! But what takes the aroma experience to the next level? Flavor, of course. The taste of this delight is divine. When it's still warm, I cannot think of many things more delicious.  Cinnamon Bun Pie, paired with a cup (or two) of your favorite coffee, makes a fine breakfast treat, or can stand on its own as a dessert. It is SO easy-to-make with a minimal list of ingredients. It's definitely on my house guest menu because it's sure to impress.

2 sticks butter
1 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup sugar
1 T. ground cinnamon
1 can refrigerated biscuits (we used the large refrigerated biscuits)

1.  Preheat oven according to biscuit directions. Melt 3/4 cup plus 2 T. of butter, set aside.

Ingredients - melted butter, cinnamon-sugar, canned biscuits and pecans

2.  Add 2 tablespoons of melted butter to bottom of oven safe pan (I used a cast iron skillet).
3.  In a small bowl, mix the cinnamon, sugar and pecans. Sprinkle 1/4 of the mix into the bottom of the cast iron skillet.
4. Open canned biscuits and roll each biscuit flat. Then dip each biscuit in the melted butter. Layer 4 flattened biscuits in the cast iron skillet, on top of the cinnamon-sugar.

Biscuits rolled out and dipped in butter layered over cinnamon-sugar and butter

5. Now repeat the cinnamon-sugar-pecan layer and then another buttered biscuit layer. 
6. Top with remaining cinnamon-sugar-pecan mix and drizzle the remaining melted butter over the top, as well. 

Ready to bake with two layers of buttered biscuits and cinnamon-sugar-pecans in between.

7. Bake 20 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. While still warm invert the Cinnamon Bun Pie onto a cake plate. Be sure to get all of the topping out of the skillet and onto the top of the pie! Best when served warm.
