Pie Crust Cinnamon Bites

Yum

Pie Crust Cinnamon Bites
Whenever my mother made pies she would make these tasty little treats with any leftover pie dough. Lately, after I eat dinner I’m always looking for something sweet to eat, well who am I kidding it’s really not lately it’s all of the time.

The other night after dinner I was looking for something sweet, only to find nothing in the house to satisfy my sweet tooth. 

 Since I didn’t make any pies and have any leftover pie dough, I did, however, have a store bought pie crust in the refrigerator, I thought perfect this won’t take long at all.

Now I have to tell you that I didn’t really measure the ingredients below I just added them to my liking.

Here is what I used for Pie Crust Cinnamon Bites:

1/2 stick butter (melted or you could substitute milk for the butter)

I unrolled the pie crust and brushed it with the melted butter. I then added the brown sugar, white sugar, and cinnamon, again add as much as you like enough to cover the pie crust.

Then I rolled it up into a log pinched the ends to prevent all of the good stuff from oozing out, of course, some will ooze out and that is okay. Then brush the top with more of the melted butter, sprinkle more brown sugar, white sugar, and cinnamon on top.

I placed this on a cookie sheet with parchment paper (recommended so you don’t have to clean the cookie sheet) and baked it at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Then cut these treats into 6 pieces.

This makes for a quick and easy sweet little snack, maybe not as good as my mother’s but I think that she would approve.

As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.
