Okay, y’all, are you ready for this one? Three words, only two ingredients: Cinnamon Roll Cobbler. Will you eat this for breakfast or for dessert? Or BOTH?

PIN IT NOW to save for later!

This Cinnamon Roll Cobbler is an easy 2 ingredient recipe that's the perfect brunch, breakfast, or dessert! If you have hands, you can make this recipe - it's totally foolproof!

Have you ever watched Dance Moms? Jordan loves that show and it freaks the heck out of me because Jordan loves to dance and she’s almost to the competition point. You guys, I am not, nor will I ever be, a dance mom.

Watch every practice faithfully? Nope, I’ll drop you honey, don’t trip on the car door as I drive away.

Coach the kids on their perfect pointe and smiles? Nope, more like, “Oh? You’re practicing today?”

Sitting backstage at competitions and recitals helping the girls change, doing make-up, and corralling them? Um, I’ll give that one a NOPE. I’d rather do…almost anything else.

Watch Jordan from the audience and cheer as loud as I can? Now THAT I can handle.

All this comes up because today I get to spend 4 hours in the parking lot of our dance studio waiting in line for “VIP Registration” so I can save 25% on classes and actually get Jordan into the ones she wants before they fill up. Admit it, you’re jealous of my Sunday, right?

At least I had cinnamon roll cobbler for breakfast and I’ll eat it again for dessert.

Easy Cinnamon Roll Cobbler Recipe - this only has 2 ingredients!!

This recipe blew my mind, seriously. I have one of those Pillsbury recipe-a-month calendars hanging on my wall and Cinnamon Roll Cobbler is April’s recipe. When I flipped the month my mouth dropped; how have I never thought of this before?

Their recipe involved boiling canned fruit along with pie filling and I thought that was too difficult. I mean, if I’m making Sunday brunch that means I’m already grumpy, so no prep is wanted.

This recipe is easy, foolproof, and has only 2 ingredients. I know, right? It’s actually easy enough that the kids can make it for you on Mother’s Day. Open the cans, dump, bake. No mixing, no bowls, nada.

Just good cobbler…topped with cinnamon rolls (and icing, of course).

This Cinnamon Roll Cobbler is an easy 2 ingredient recipe that's the perfect brunch, breakfast, or dessert! Everyone loved this - the kids made it themselves!

The only things you need for this recipe are 2 cans of pie filling and an 8-count roll of cinnamon rolls. You can use ANY flavor pie fillings you like. I used apple and cherry because I had them in my pantry, but you could mix and match cherry, apple, blueberry, peach…whatever you like. I used a large 10″ pie plate but you can also use a 9×9 or 11×7 pan.

Once the cinnamon rolls are baked you pour the icing that came with them all over the top and serve. The cinnamon rolls make it breakfast food, the pie filling makes it dessert. So which is it??!! (Hint: BOTH.)

  1. This cobbler is absolutely genius!! Love that it’s only 2-ingredients. I almost can’t believe it!!!

  2. Um, whoa is all I’m going to say. And 2 ingredients, shut the front door, drop the mic, simply just walk away. Apparently I need the Pillsbury calendar in my life 🙂

  3. I will never be a dance mom, soccer mom, or [insert sport here] mom of any kind. If my kids are practicing somewhere, that gives me a free hour to do something. Anything. Free time!
    This is super brilliant. I would have never thought of this. Amazing!!

  4. Wow! Dorothy! This looks amazing! I love cinnamon rolls and cobbler!!! I think I could eat this for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert!!:)

  5. Love the ease of desserts like this, especially when there’s a huge gooey factor involved! You know I love my sauces and frostings 🙂

    And Dance Moms, yep. My real life is called Cheer Moms. While it’s not quite as ‘dramatic’ in real life as the reality show’s drama, there are days and certain competitions where yes, it feels as dramatic! There are more mornings that I can tell you waking up in a hotel and getting to work on cheer hair and cheer makeup at 5am on a Saturday. FUN!

  6. I love these bread!!! I love your food blog!!! I am Weining Wang, an international student from China. I love food writing!!!
    This is my food blog:

    I love food writing!!!
    I came from Arizona, where Sonorant Desert is located. For four times, I went across the desert to experience the real spirit of martyr, which has shaped my writing into a unique style. Having grown up in a big family with famous chefs for generations ever since my grand grand-father, I was inborn with the mission of keeping the inheritance of traditional food culture. I used to combine culture and history together. Besides getting to know the food cooking skills and the history stories behinds them, I also wanted to study the vicissitudes and protection of traditional culture.
    Can you read my food blog? I want to add my food blog in your list!!! I want to let more poeple read my food blog!!!
    Thank you very much!!!
