Does Apple Pie Need To Be Refrigerated?
You can store apple pie at room temperature for 2 days and then refrigerate after that. Cover the pie with plastic wrap.
Won’t the Cinnamon Rolls be Soggy?
No, your cinnamon rolls will not become soggy when adding to your Apple Pie. They are placed on the finished pie and not added with the apple to make them soggy. The bottom will soak up the pie filling slightly but overall the rolls will not get soggy and still have the same texture as they would outside of the pie.
