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.

    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!

      Thanks for the feedback Dawn! Glad to hear you guys enjoyed these devilish little pies ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great day!!

  3. Stephanie

    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!

  4. Angela

    Yum! They look a little like a snickerdoodle with filling! I’ll have to make these for a scrapbooking girlie nite in a few weeks.

  5. Andrea

  6. Heather (Heather's Dish)

    HOLY delicious! these will be making an appearance on my saturday breakfast table ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Jay

    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.

    1. Jenny

      Lol! Thanks Jay ๐Ÿ™‚

      I have always wanted to go to the Lady & Son’s Restaurant! Maybe someday.

  8. joanne

    Thanks for the heads up about the contest!

    Doesn’t everything taste better in pocket form? These look delicious.

  9. Tickled Red

    Oooo These are just too much ๐Ÿ™‚ I am wishing that I hadn’t skipped breakfast right now. Can you hear my stomach grumbling all the way in LA?

  10. jenjenk

    Jenny – you are ruining my efforts to try to stay on some sort of diet!!! i’ve gotta have this!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. Heather

    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!!

    1. Jenny

      Hi Heather,
      I am actually just promoting the contest for them, I’ll be rooting you on!! Good luck!

  12. vanillasugar

    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.

  13. Lauren @ Crave. Indulge. Satisfy.

    YUM! Anything with cinnamon and sugar count me in, I’m ready to try this recipe!

  14. Wei-Wei

    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… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love your blog! It’s beautiful ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wei-Wei

  15. Jessica @ How Sweet It Is

    These are so creative! Love this idea – a nice change to the normal cinnamon bun. ๐Ÿ™‚
