Tips, Tricks, and FAQs

  • Try making these Pie Cups with different kinds of pie filling for a different flavor. Berry or cherry work great. 
  • You can make these Pie Cups with a mini muffin tin as well. Cut the cinnamon rolls in half before squishing them into the muffin tin. 
  • Serve these mini pie cups warm with vanilla ice cream for a fun dessert rather than a sweet mid-afternoon snack. 


Store any leftovers in an air-tight container on the counter. These will keep for up to 4 days. Over time the cinnamon rolls will become soggy as they sit. 


You can eat your leftovers warm or at room temperature. 

If you want to want them warm, warm them up in the microwave for a few seconds until they reach your desired temperature.
