My Grams made these, my mom made these and I made these. I guess it runs in the family. My girls love them and so do the grandkids.

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!


  1. Mush together all your left over pie trimmings and scraps and dough.
  2. Cut into shapes with a cookie cutter or oddball shapes with a knife.
  3. Apply a small amount of butter (melted) with a pastry brush; sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.
  4. Bake about 8 to 10 minutes alongside your pie while it is baking.
  5. Eat while warm.
  6. YUM.
