7 Homemade Sinful Desserts That Are Worth the Cheat Meal ...


At the beginning of each year, you might swear yourself off of fatty foods and sinful desserts in your New Year’s Resolution. But one cheat meal never hurt anyone, right? Some sinful desserts are simply too delicious to pass up! Here are some of my absolute favorites.

1. Cinnamon Roll Pie

Cinnamon Roll Pie

Doesn’t the name just make your mouth water? This sinful dessert tastes just the way the name sounds: like a cinnamon roll pie. It’s quick and easy to make, and will have your friends begging for more!



2 3/4 cups All Purpose Flour

3 tablespoons Granulated Sugar

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda

1/4 teaspoon Salt

3/4 cup Earth Balance Soymilk, vanilla

2 teaspoons Apple Cider Vinegar

6 tablespoons Earth Balance Buttery Spread, melted

1/4 cup Maple Syrup


1 cup Brown Sugar

5 tablespoons All Purpose Flour

1 tablespoon Cinnamon

6 tablespoons Earth Balance Buttery Spread, melted

1 1/2 cups Pecans, chopped


1 ounce Vegan Cream Cheese

1 tablespoon Earth Balance Soymilk, vanilla

2/3 cup Powdered Sugar


Begin with the dough by combine soymilk and apple cider vinegar in a small bowl. Then, in a large bowl combine sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and 2 ½ cups of the flour. Add soymilk, melted buttery spread, and maple syrup to flour and stir. If the dough gets too sticky, add the remaining ¼ cup flour and knead into dough until it is easier to handle. Knead dough 2 minutes.

To make the filling combine brown sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Add melted buttery spread and stir to combine. To make the glaze, stir together cream cheese, soymilk, and powdered sugar until creamy.

To assemble, preheat your oven to 400°F. Roll out 2/3 of the dough and put it into your 9 inch standard pie pan. Spread 2/3 filling over the bottom of dough. Sprinkle 1 cup of the pecans over filling. Roll remaining 1/3 of dough into a large enough circle to cover your pecans and place into pan. Spread remaining 1/3 of filling over this layer of dough and sprinkle the rest of the pecans on top.

Bake for 20 – 30 minutes or until dough is nice and golden. Let cool a bit then drizzle glaze over top.


NOTE: While this recipe is vegan, it doesn’t need to be; when I make it I still use dairy products.
