I don't know about you, but every time that I work with pie crust dough, I always have some left over. What do you do with that extra dough? I certainly hope you don't throw it away!! These little cookie-like pinwheels are so good that sometimes I make pie crust dough just to make them . Yum, yum, yum!
pie crust dough
room temperature butter
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a pan by either spraying it with cooking spray or, preferably, lining a pan with parchment. Roll out however much pie crust you want to use.
Smooth butter in a thin layer over the rolled pie crust. Sprinkle generously with sugar and cinnamon. Roll into a log. Do not roll too tightly. Ideally, you want to have some room for the dough to expand when it bakes. Slice log into half-inch slices and lay onto the prepared pan. Bake 10-14 minutes or until nicely browned. Let cool and enjoy.
