It's Semi Homemade

My husband has always talked about one of his favorite desserts when he was a child was butter roll pie.  One weekend while visiting his mother, she made a butter roll pie.   Since I have always heard about this famous pie, I wanted to watch and learn how to make it.  

The first step is to make the dough like biscuits and roll it out.
Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar and lots of butter!
Roll it up and slice.

She poured a little water in it and baked at 350 degrees until brown.  You can see that it really did have the consistency of a pie and was really DELICIOUS.

One of my favorite cooking shows was Sandra Lee because everything she did was semi-homemade.
Keep it simple, keep it smart, keep it sweet, keep it semi-homemade.  Here is my version of butter roll pie the Sandra Lee way.

I thawed out 6 frozen biscuits.
Instant dough

Roll out and spread on butter.
Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar.

Roll up and slice
I mixed up a little glaze with confectioner's sugar, milk and vanilla flavoring.
My version of Butter Roll Pie the Sandra Lee way.  Mine did not have the pie consistency because I didn't add any water before baking.  They were just like mini cinnamon rolls and DELICIOUS!.
