In my family these are called "snails" because once the dough is buttered and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar, it is rolled up into a log, and is cut into about 1 inch pieces and baked. Someone is my ancestory much have thought these little spirals resembles snails. These little treats are almost as well appreciated as the pie!

I had an unused sheet of Pillsbury Refrigerated Pie Dough and no plans to make pie so I thought I'd try these. Dh loves them. Great way to use up dough. Thanks for posting.

I always used my mom's left over pie dough to make these when I was a kid, but I used brown sugar. The best!! My mom always salted the dough strips and made "crackers", which are good, too.

I just hack up the leftover dough into free form triangle shapes and put the cinnamon sugar directly on it, no butter. Tastes like childhood.

my mom used the same..butter, cinnamon, sugar but rolls her up like a cinnamon bun...dad has always called them rollerbungers. The 3 of us "kids" still get into them when she makes them...and now get our fingers tapped with the wooden spoon...they are for the grandkids!!

Love, love, love these! Grandma used to make these with us. Making these brings back great memories and creates new ones with my kids. Thanks Darlene Summers :)

These are the best. We made them into "snails" too and even called them snails like one of the other reviewers.

My Mom used to make these when I was a kid sprinkling them with a mixture of cinnamon, sugar and fine ground nuts. Delicious for a hot little cookie-snack!

These are a holiday tradition in my family! My mom always makes her own pie crusts for Thanksgiving and Christmas and uses the leftover dough to make these. She just cuts them in strips with a pizza slicer. We don't have a name for them, probably because we eat them so fast we don't have time to name them!
