This recipe is a cross from a cinnamon roll and an apple pie. It's low in sugar and you could substitute the regular pie crust for a gluten free one, found in a health food store.
We prepared this recipe in our cooking school during a kids class, and everyone had so much fun rolling out the dough and placing the cinnamon mixture on the pie log then cutting them into circles. It was for sure a hit!

  1. Place a baking sheet in the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F.
  2. Line a 9-inch pie plate with 1 piece of dough; refrigerate until ready to assemble.
  3. Lay the remaining piece of dough on a lightly floured surface and spread the butter evenly on top. .
  4. Combine 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl; sprinkle evenly over the butter, then gently press with your fingers to help the mixture adhere.
  5. Roll the pie dough into a tight log.
  6. Trim and discard about 1 1/2 inches from both ends; cut the remaining log crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick pieces.
  7. Arrange the pieces cut-side down in a snug circle on floured parchment paper.
  8. Lightly dust with more flour, then gently roll out into a 10-inch round.
  9. Slide the parchment onto a baking sheet and refrigerate until ready to assemble the pie.
  10. Peel and thinly slice the apples.
  11. Toss with the lemon juice, vanilla and the remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon in a large bowl.
  12. Transfer to the dough-lined pie plate; invert the cinnamon-roll crust on top and peel off the parchment (it's OK if the individual rounds separate a bit in the process).
  13. Pinch the crusts together; fold the overhanging dough under itself and crimp as desired.
  14. Brush with the beaten egg.
  15. Set the pie on the hot baking sheet in the oven; bake until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbling, about 40 minutes. (Tent loosely with foil if the top browns too quickly.)
  16. Transfer to a rack to cool slightly.
  17. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar before serving
