Ingredients

For the Dough

  • 3 - 3 1/4 cups flour
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 package instant yeast (1 package = 2 1/4 tsp)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup dairy free milk (we like oat)
  • 1 cup leftover sweet potato pie (see notes above if you don't have a leftover pie)

For the Filling

  • 3/4 cup leftover sweet potato pie

For the Brown Butter Frosting

Instructions

For the dough

  • In a large bowl or a stand mixer bowl, combine 3 cups flour, brown sugar, yeast, and salt.  Whisk to combine.
  • Chop the pie into pieces and add to bowl. Turn stand mixer on to low and slowly add in the dairy free milk.
    *If not using stand mixer, use a spatula to combine.
  • Let go for 5-7 minutes, adding in the remaining flour slowly.
  • Once ball is formed, grease the same bowl mixed in and place the dough ball back into the bowl. 
  • Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let sit for 60-90 minutes in a warm, draft free place until doubled.
  • Once doubled in size, pull out the dough and lay it out on a lightly floured surface.  
  • Using a rolling pin, roll dough into an approximately 17×25″ rectangle that is 1/4″ thick.  
  • For the filling - Cut the pie away from the crust and spread it out across the dough.
  • Crumble the crust pies over the filling.
  • Carefully roll cinnamon rolls into log from the longest side up. One completely rolled, place seam side down. Cut into 12 even sized pieces.
  • Place into a greased 9x13 baking dish and cover to rise for 45-60 minutes.
  • Preheat to 350 degrees F.
  • Once heated, place dish inside and bake in oven for 30-35 minutes.

For the Frosting

  • While rolls are cooking, in a bowl beat together the softened butter and powdered sugar together.
  • Add in 2 tbsp of dairy free milk and vanilla. Beat to combine.
  • Add remaining 1-2 tbsp of milk if desired for a thinner consistency.
  • Fold in crumbled graham crackers.
  • Remove rolls from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before topping with frosting.
  • Best served warm.
