Why I Love This Recipe

For your 'leftover' pie pastry

My grandmother used to make these using the pastry cut off of her pie crusts. Now I make them using the 'extra' pie crust I make. Just a little something to snack on while doing my holiday pies!

Ingredients You'll Need

Trimmings from your pie crust.


Roll out remaining pastry into a rectangle.

Spread with softened butter and sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar.

Roll up along the long side.

Cut into approximately ¼-inch pieces and lay on lightly greased baking sheet.

(Optional) Place a small pat of butter on each ˜tail".

Bake until golden brown watching that they don't burn (which they do easily!).

Enjoy snacking on these as your pies are cooking.
