Easy Cinnamon Roll Pumpkin Pie Recipe

Thanksgiving is all about the food. For our family, it’s an excuse to indulge a little bit, while still enjoying time as a family. We have all of our relatives over to our house, which may sound like a lot, but we’re still considered a smaller family. The kids have a table and the adults have a table – then there’s the dessert table. I bake several delicious options for guests to pick from.

Over the years, I started to notice that nobody was eating the traditional pumpkin pie anymore. Everyone was opting for cakes or different pie flavors. That’s when I knew we had to mix it up! I think this Cinnamon Roll Pumpkin Pie is the smashing dessert hit that our family needed for the holiday season.

How To Make This Cinnamon Roll Pumpkin Pie Ahead Of Time

If you want to make this pie ahead of time, so you’re less stressed on Thanksgiving, you can certainly do so. After you bake the base layer of pumpkin and it’s cooled, you place the pie in the refrigerator. It can stay as long as you need to before baking the cinnamon roll top layer. That part needs to be done before serving, but only takes a few minutes to do so.

What To Serve This Pie With

I obviously love to have several dessert options on the Thanksgiving table. Along with the desserts, I serve some fresh whipped cream and ice cream. Homemade vanilla ice cream or cinnamon ice cream would pair nicely with the pie. A great dessert liqueur and a fresh pot of coffee are always welcomed with my desserts too. It helps to give everyone a second burst of energy after a heavy meal.
