Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spread pecans onto a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until pecans are toasted and fragrant, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Spray a 9-inch pie pan with cooking spray. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

  • Press the cinnamon rolls into the bottom of the pie pan, sealing edges together to create the 'crust'.

  • Whisk corn syrup and brown sugar together in a bowl until thick and sticky. Add butter and whisk until mixture is smooth. Whisks eggs, 1 at a time, into brown sugar mixture, whisking well after each addition, until eggs are fully incorporated. Stir cinnamon, vanilla extract, and salt into brown sugar mixture.

  • Layer the toasted pecans over the cinnamon roll 'crust'. Pour the brown sugar mixture over pecans. Place the pie on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Cover crust with pieces of aluminum foil to avoid burning.

  • Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Continue baking until pie is set in the middle, 20 to 25 minutes. Cool pie for 15 minutes.

  • Place cream cheese frosting in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave until frosting is thinned and pourable, about 30 seconds. Drizzle frosting over pie and set aside until frosting has slightly hardened, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Note:

If you're using homemade frosting, thin it out with milk to a consistency that will hold its shape but will drizzle easily.
