Cinnamon Pastry Roll-ups
Cinnamon pastry roll-ups are made from leftover pie crust dough.
It is very simple to make.
There is no set measurement. It all depends on how much pie crust you have leftover.
You will need a baking sheet or pan.
Leftover pie crust dough- either butter crust or simple pie crust
After making your pie, reroll the pastry scraps.
If it is a really large piece , divide it into 2 or 3 sections so that when you roll it up the roll-ups won't be too fat to cook completely.
With a knife, spread a thin layer of butter over the pie crust dough.
Sprinkle sugar liberally over the butter.
Sprinkle the cinnamon over the sugar.
Roll the pastry pieces. They will be like long cinnamon rolls.
Cut them into desired lengths.
Put on the baking sheets and put in the oven along with the pie.
Bake for about15-20 minutes until the pastry seems done and is just getting some color.
Pie crust made with butter will brown more and faster than a shortening crust.
Take out of the oven and let cool or eat warm.
