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.


  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.

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.
