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