Cinnamon Bun Pie Crust

Gail Herbest


I love making this crust, it is so pretty! and if you use a store bought refrigerated pie crust it is super easy. This time I was making Just a pinch member Rhonda Gibsons Glazed apple cream pie, which calls for a glaze after baking, it is a fantastic pie!! The glaze was the perfect touch for this crust, I found this recipe in a magazine at the Dr's office about 2 yrs ago.
