Milk Bar Mondays - Cinnamon Bun Pie



I love breakfast.  It's one of my favorite meals out of the day.  But for some reason, I always have the same thing every morning.  Normally I have cereal with cold milk.  And it's always the same cereal - Right now, I'm addicted to Honey Nut Cherrios.  It's like I go in phases of the cereal I like.  Before Honey Nut Cherrios, it was Kashi Go Lean Crunch for like 2 full years.  

See I love making breakfast items, eggs on toast, pancakes, waffles, biscuits, egg sandwiches, and much more.  But I always just have cereal.  I know.  I'm weird.  Maybe I will change as I get older, but for now, it's cereal - every day.

One of my favorite breakfast items are Cinnamon Rolls.  I like them because their sweet.  And we all know I love my sweets :).  For this weeks Milk Bar Mondays, Erin from Big Fat Baker chose this incredible Cinnamon Bun Pie.  It’s a pie that actually tastes like your eating a Cinnamon Roll. 

The bottom layer of this pie is a soft dough {Milk Bar calls this dough their Mother Dough, as they use it is many recipes}.  This dough is placed in a pie pin and then topped with layers of browned butter, liquid cheesecake, brown sugar, and cinnamon.  Then to top it all off, you make a cinnamon streusel and sprinkle it over the entire top surface of the pie.  


It’s soft.  It’s dough-y.  It’s creamy.  It’s sugary.  It’s cinnamon-y.  It’s truly delicious.  This pie would make for a wonderful breakfast and/or brunch item.  And what’s great about it, is that you can bake it in advance and them re-heat it in the oven before serving.


Another great creation from the Momofuku Milk Bar Cookbook!

  2. Gorgeous Krissy! Your dough looks so perfect. I think mine is a little off but after seeing all the other posts, I don't think I messed it too badly, it just didn't puff around the edges like everyone's did. Love this!
