That looks so good!  Using cinnamon roll dough as a crust might just be one of the most brilliant things I've ever heard of!

 It is pretty clever......even though I love to cook and can create some dishes on my own, I would never think to use cinnamon roll dough as a crust.  Guess I'm not as creative as I think I am....LOL

I made it this morning.  I did cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg for the applie pie spice. I am not a fan of cloves. I used a small brownie pan, and not a pie pan. And I think I spread the cinnamon roll a little thinner than called for, but I wanted it a little less dense. I was afraid of baking through. The cinnamon roll tube I had, was caramel frosting. So I drizzled that on the top. Then I made up my own frosting with powdered sugar, vanilla, and cream(just because I had some). It was really good. Oh and because we love things cinnamony, I put some cinnamon in the toppign too. 

I am going to double it, and put it in a 13x9 pan and bring to church potluck :)

 Awesome....good enough for the church potluck!  Yay!  I'm going to make note of your changes on my copy I printed off.  (I'm not much for cloves, either.)

Its rich. Its not for those that like a light sweet, lol. But I would imagine that is assumed given the ingredients. I love sweet things, so it was fine to me! I am taking ti tonight to potluck, with a homemade mac and cheese. YUM
