This pie has been a big hit at our house. The little cinnamon roll crust adds a nice touch and it's the perfect combination of apples and cinnamon rolls. I use a Apple machine that peels, slices, and cores all at once......it really saves time and makes it a lot easier.

Roll up lengthwise, seal edge and gently squeeze the roll with your hands. Slice into thin cinnamon rolls and lightly flatten each roll with the palm of your hands.

Place the little cinnamon rolls over the apples, covering the surface of the pie. Brush the cinnamon rolls with the beaten egg.
