Dutch Oven Apple Pie

This "apple pie" was delicious! And it was a super easy recipe. We had it up at the cabin for brunch one day over labor day weekend, Bonnie had seen it on T.V. and thought it looked good. She made a wise choice printing this recipe off. :) I have made it twice since. 
Here is the recipe:

Dutch Oven Apple Pie

12 Rhodes cinnamon rolls, thawed but still cold
2 granny smith apples, peeled and diced
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional) (we didn't put nuts in ours)
2 packets cream cheese frosting (comes with rolls)
1/3 cup caramel ice cream topping

Cut each roll into 4 pieces and arrange in the bottom of a 12 inch dutch oven lined with aluminum foil or sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. In a bowl, combine the apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, cracker crumbs and pecans. Sprinkle evenly over cut rolls. Cover with lid and bake at 350 for 25 to 30 minutes. (I had to cook mine for 45 minutes.)

For icing, combine cream cheese frosting with caramel topping. Drizzle over pie while still warm.

If using briquettes, 16 on top of dutch oven, 8 on bottom.
