I’ve got a sweet treat to share with you today that is sure to put a smile on your face 🙂  These awesome little pie pockets taste just like cinnamon rolls, but pie like.

Inside Out Cinnamon Bun Pie Pockets

2 refrigerated 9 inch pie crusts

8 oz softened Philadelphia Cream Cheese

¼ Cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 Tablespoons granulated sugar

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 Tablespoons melted butter

1 Cup powdered sugar

2-3 Tablespoons heavy cream

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Unroll both pie crusts and place onto a lightly floured countertop. Using a 3 inch round cutter, cut rounds out of crust until all crust is used. You should get approximately 12 rounds per pie crust, re-rolling scraps one time.

2. In a mixing bowl, mix the cream cheese, brown sugar and cinnamon until well combined. Place half (12) of the rounds onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Using a small-medium cookie scoop, scoop a heaping Tablespoon of cream cheese mixture onto the centers of the 12 crusts. Lightly brush water around outer edges of the filled dough then place remaining rounds on top of filled rounds. Gently press edges to seal. Place sugar and cinnamon into a small bowl and mix to combine. Brush tops of pies with melted butter then sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until tops of pies are golden brown. Once pies are cooled, whisk powdered sugar and cream until mixed well and a desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle over tops of pies.

    Could you whip these up the night before, put them in the fridge/freezer (unbaked) and just pop them in the oven in the morning?

  4. Made these tonight with a friend for a bakesale tomorrow. So yummy, easy to make, and inexpensive. We got 15 pie pockets from our batch.

    Thanks for sharing the recipe.

  5. I just found your blog today, and can’t wait to try some of these incredible recipes!! This one first though….my gosh, it’s making me drool! Great video, by the way!

  6. I just made these on Sunday morning and they turned out SO delicious! My husband wouldn’t even wait for me to make the drizzle for the top – he ate one right out of the oven. Once I let them cool, and made the topping, he had two more. They were a big hit! They were also great cold – I put them in the fridge over night and they were yummy for a treat the next day! Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas with all of us! I love new treats and dinner ideas! Keep ’em comin’!

  7. These looked so good that I made them last night! They are so easy to make, and even easier to have more than one! My husband said this recipe is definately a keeper for us now! Thanks so much for your clever ideas!

  8. I haven’t visited any blogs for a while. And so I was so surprised when I actually posted a recipe last night on my blog and went and visited your blog right after and saw that you had a similar recipe on yours!!! Mine are more of a mini-apple pie, but I started laughing, because our brains think alike sometimes! Awesome video Jenny! You are amazing!

    These look delish and I love the video. You should have a cooking show. You and Giada and call it Food Network Babes.

    I’ve met Paula Deen. Went to her cooking class at Lady & Sons in Savannah. You know the saying, “You should never meet someone you admire”? She’s a little less humble in person.

  10. These look so yummy!
    I love Paula Deen and I’ve also signed up to take part in the Real Women of Philadelphia challenge. It’s a lot of fun but wow does it take time to film and edit. Working on editing my dessert video now. Good luck to you!!

  11. oh jenny i love these! i was thinking about submitting a few recipes to that.
    when you get a chance come see my latest creation–this is one creation I know you would dig. But I warned you they are addicting.

  12. This looks like the perfect thing for me: normally huge cinnamon buns are just WAY too big for me to finish…

    I love the innards shots by the way… can you say ooey, gooey, sticky, sweet, YUM? I wonder how these would taste cold… Like cinnamon bun pie popsicles, perhaps? Or maybe I’m just being unconventional… 😉

    Love your blog! It’s beautiful 🙂
